Noble Neighbors Election Forum 2023
Please join us for our Noble Neighbors Election Forum with candidates for Cleveland Heights City Council on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 7pm, at Disciples Christian Church, 3663 Mayfield Road.
Our election forums are renowned for thoughtful, researched responses by the candidates and for respectfulness from our audiences.
Two weeks in advance, the candidates were sent two questions and asked to prepare answers for them. The questions were a compilation of the concerns identified at our September 5th meeting during which we discussed issues that pertain to the Noble Road neighborhoods. Our comments and discussion were distilled into these broad questions for which candidates each will have 3 minutes to respond:
Question 1. Economic Development: Please describe an economic development plan that would help the Noble Road business districts thrive. Include a description of the successes and challenges that currently exist. Include a description of macro trends and local patterns that impact planning for these districts. Offer viable directions for beneficial change.
Question 2. Housing Policy: Describe your views of City Council’s role in formulating housing policy that produces thriving neighborhoods. Address the mix of market-rate and affordable housing, approach to neighborhood engagement, and proactive vs reactive development.
So, that's the "thoughtful, researched response" angle for the forum.
On the "respectfulness from the audience" angle, you will have opportunities to speak to each candidate one-on-one or in small groups. You can ask your questions face-to-face with them immediately following the formal presentations where they have answered our two questions.
Some of you remember our COVID-era forum where we met at the Noble-Roanoke mini-park and had informal conversations with candidates. We received such positive feedback from both candidates and voters that we decided to try it in this context. So, there will be no need for you to write questions on 3x5 cards and wait to see if your question is selected. Just go ask them yourself!
Disciples Christian Church is not charging us for using their facility. It has always been our practice to bring a donation basket to collect funds for our host facility. Please bring your usual generosity so that we can help our host defray their costs for our meeting. Thank you!
It is good to be informed about how candidates view our neighborhood!
See you Tuesday!
