Update from Cleveland Heights City Manager Tanisha R. Briley - April 29, 2020

As you know, on Monday Governor DeWine announced phase one of the State’s plan for the reopening of some businesses. However, many of the requirements of the Stay at Home Order such as social distancing and limited gathering  are still in place.  Additionally, the Governor and the CDC strongly recommend wearing face coverings while visiting businesses or any occasion where social distancing may be difficult. Let’s all continue to do our part to help eradicate this virus. I am proud of how well our community is doing this while still looking out for their neighbors and supporting our businesses.

To continue to look after the safety and health of our residents and our employees, all City facilities will remain closed until May 31st. Just as a reminder, you can access contact information for City departments on our website and you can leave phone or email messages that will be returned as quickly as possible. We continue to ask your patience as we work through these challenging times with a reduced staff. Our first responders and public works staff continue to perform their duties uninterrupted.

Unfortunately, because of the continued spread of the Coronavirus, a number of community events are being cancelled or delayed. Below is the current list of events being impacted by the pandemic:

May 3 - Launch event for Women Out Walking (new date TBA)
May 4 - Blood Drive at the Community Center (cancelled)
May 20 - Safety Town registration and this summer’s Safety Town program (cancelled)
May 25 - Memorial Day ceremony at Cumberland Park (cancelled)
May 31 - Bike Auction postponed until late summer (new date TBA)

I can’t reiterate enough how important it is that Cleveland Heights have a strong response rate to the 2020 Census - it can mean several millions of dollars for Cleveland Heights. As of today, only 56.9% of our residents have filled out the 2020 Census. This lags behind some of our neighboring cities as well as the state. If you haven’t yet completed the Census questionnaire, I hope you will take the time to do so today. It only takes around ten minutes to complete it online and will help determine the allocation of Federal and State funding for such things as schools, transportation and infrastructure projects. The Census has also mailed questionnaires to many of us so it is easy to complete either way.

Lastly, Cuyahoga County is moving its enforcement of the plastic bag ban from July 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021. The County’s suggested delay of enforcement is aimed to help businesses during this difficult time while knowing that residents and shoppers are doing all they can to get in and out of stores as quickly as possible to limit the spread of the virus. More information on the guidelines of the plastic bag ban and frequently asked questions can be found on their website.
