Celebrate our neighborhood parks in Northeast Ohio
On Monday of this week we presented Mayor Jackson’s 2016 Five Year Capital Improvement Program to Cleveland City Council. That document includes recommendations of $500,000 in 2016 and $500,000 in 2017 for improvements to W.C. Reed Park. The Jackson administration will soon submit to Cleveland City Council proposed authorizing legislation for the 2016 recommended projects, including the $500,000 for W.C. Reed.
As for 2017, the $500,000 recommendation for W.C. Reed is subject to the reality that we are showing $73.7 million in needed projects with an ability to fund about one-third ($25 million) of that amount. Nevertheless, both the Jackson administration and Cleveland City Council are fully aware of the importance of restoring W.C. Reed Park.
