Thursday, Jan. 17, 7 p.m. at the Cleveland Heights Community Center
at Monticello and Mayfield
The consultants from Camiros, Ltd., a nationally recognized urban planning firm, and The Riddle Company, a real estate and economic development marketing consulting practice will present to us their findings on existing conditions and will offer alternative options and ideas about how to revitalize the corridor and enhance its image. All are invited to attend, not only Noble area residents and business owners, but all interested Cleveland Heights and East Cleveland stakeholders.
This is the first of three community meetings. After this meeting, you will be asked for your input as the plan takes shape. Similarly for the second meeting, in early Spring, we will view a draft plan with opportunity for feedback. The final meeting, late Spring, will feature the final report.
Your input is essential!
The project is underway and we want your input!

Tune in to this space for announcements on informal community gatherings where you can talk with others about possibilities for redevelopment on Noble Road. Let's work together to make Noble Road a fabulous place to live and visit!

Meet Your Police
Thursday, December 6, 2018, 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!!
On Feb. 28, 2018, Police Chief Mecklenburg held a meeting for citizens at the Community Center. Responding to resident requests, she described crimes in the city and progress on solving those cases. Statistics going back several years demonstrated trends. Click here to view the power point presentation she showed.
Pocket Garden Project
Our neighborhood gardeners are an active group! This year's project is establishing pocket gardens with sustainability and low maintenance in mind. The pilot project will be planted at homes along Langton Road. Click here to read about their efforts in the Heights Observer.

WE ARE NOBLE Promotional Video
We are pleased to announce our new promotional video! Jake Hochendoner, a professional filmmaker who lives in the Noble neighborhood, filmed We Are Noble 2017 to tell the story of the people in this great neighborhood. This is just the beginning of the story we have to tell. Enjoy it, and look for more of Jake's work at http://www.jakobhochendoner.com/
Are we really making a difference? Oh, yes we are! These quotes are from emails, website 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 am so happy to read about all the incredible things Noble Neighbors is doing. I loved being involved with my neighborhood organization in Hartford before I had kids, and I am eager to get involved with Noble Neighbors when my kids graduate and I am not doing school volunteer work anymore! In the meantime, thanks so much for all your hard work. I have noticed a difference in the feel of the neighborhood over the last few years because of your work, and it makes me so happy to be living here!
~ Neighbor who is very active in school PTAs. Her work in the schools is critical to our growing success! Dec. 2018
There is no blueprint for what we're trying to do to transform this neighborhood. It's up to us to be creative.
~ Long time neighbor who is excited about the Noble Corridor Project, Nov. 2018
We lived on Montevista from '97 to 2013. Big place in my heart for that neighborhood. I am just blown away by the amazing community building you are doing.
~ Former resident who moved to another neighborhood in Cleveland Heights joined our email list, May 2018
The neighborhood looks terrific! I saw people at the library and a church on Noble. There are kids doing chalk drawings. It feels wonderful!
~ Former resident had moved out of town and returned to visit during We Are Noble 2018.
I wanted to formally introduce you to one of Cleveland Heights' strongest neighborhood groups: Noble Neighbors. Noble Neighbors is a collection of residents that advocate for the "Noble Neighborhood" in Cleveland Heights (i.e. north of Mayfield, and east of Taylor). They've exploded over the past few years and have brought significant attention to issues of housing, safety, and economic development in the northeast quadrant of Cleveland Heights.
~ This is how a CH City Council member described us to a political candidate, Jan. 2018
