On Saturday, June 8, 58 volunteers from 12 Greater Cleveland Congregations member congregations from across Cuyahoga County assembled at Noble Road Presbyterian Church in Cleveland Heights to participate in a half-hour training on how to identify deteriorating houses and then disperse in teams of two volunteers to walk the entire Noble Neighborhood in Cleveland Heights. The teams were tasked with identifying houses in seriously deteriorated condition so the GCC Cleveland Heights Housing Team can work to get these homes repaired.
The GCC Heights Housing Team is taking the list of properties identified, research ownership and status of each, and request that the City of Cleveland Heights do a "complaint inspection" that will place these properties at the top of the City's agenda. Focus of the neighborhood walk was on properties that are bank or investor owned, tax delinquent, and/or vacant.
The GCC Heights Housing Team will report the results of the Action as they are made available.
