- Council declared April 8 to 14 National Community Development Week. Vice Mayor Dennis Wilcox said Cleveland Heights created this week to give thanks to the people who participate in the Community Development Block Grant program.

It's an easy target ... but it is a great benefit to urban cities like Cleveland Heights." The city received $1.9 million in 2010, $1.6 million in 2011 and will receive about $1.45 million this year.
