Thank you to FutureHeights' Neighborhood Mini-Grants Program for funding two of our projects this spring. We're continuing to plant flowers in our public perennial/annual gardens and business district containers. Lots of garden beds require lots of plants! We've also worked on a Noble Neighborhood Promotional Video to tell the good news of our neighborhood so we can attract even more good residents and business owners. We are so grateful for your support! For more information about this program, click here.

Our Own Toxic Avenger
Noble area residents are grateful to Cleveland Heights City Council member Mike Ungar for being the catalyst to close the Arco dump on Noble Road in East Cleveland. While the site is not in our city, the airborne toxicity is a threat to CH residents. Without Ungar's relentless pursuit to get state, county and local officials to work together on this issue, we would not have the resolution in place at this time. Read more at: http://bit.ly/2smdYAb
Meet Your Police
Thursday, December 7, 2017, 6 - 8pm
One of the City's responses to the concerns we expressed at the April 29, 2014 Community Meeting is to change the location of the Meet Your Police event to the Police Academy on Noble at Monticello. On the first Thursday of every month, the police will be in our neighborhood to meet with us (and any other Cleveland Heights resident). On the other Thursdays, the police will return to City Hall where they have been meeting us for years. Let's take advantage of this!!

Are we really making a difference? Oh, yes we are! These quotes are from emails, web site form submissions and conversations. Not one of them was solicited. Each of these people voluntarily reached out to us to tell us what they feel. Thank you!! You're an encouragement to us all!
I wanted to let you know that friends who are renting on the other side of Cleveland Heights are actively looking to buy a house in the Noble neighborhood. Some of the factors in their decision are the quiet streets, community gardens, AND Noble Neighbors. They had checked out the NN website and were impressed.

Thank you for doing this. This was incredible. I feel so much more hopeful about the area now.
~ Participant in Envision a New Triangle District Workshop, July 2017
I love what you all are doing in Noble. It's so positive!
~ Cleveland Heights City Council Member, June 2017
I was only able to get to the the police academy and Oxford's festival this weekend, but I had a great time at both places. I have lived in this neighborhood for a little over half my life, and I have never been in the police academy building! How cool was that? It was great to run into old friends and make some new ones at the Oxford festival. I also loved driving down Noble Road, seeing people sitting in front of the library, and seeing all the tag sale signs. Thank you so much for all you did to help all the bright lights of our community shine today.
~ Resident who wrote us after We Are Noble on May 20, 2017
I've lived here my whole life, but I've never stopped to visit this. That's what's so good about this weekend. I get to see new things in my own neighborhood.

I am so in love with the Noble Neighbors meeting by the way. Brought tears to my eyes to see so many elders and individuals in the community coming together. Made me truly excited.

Noble Neighbors is by far the most active community group in the city. They are doing incredible things in the Noble area.
