Euclid Heights in the Running for National Historic District Designation
The City of Cleveland Heights will provide residents with more information at a meeting Monday, June 18.
Another district in Cleveland Heights is in the running for a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.
The National Park Service is now reviewing the application for what could be Cleveland Heights’ 11th historic district, Euclid Heights.
Cedar Road to the south, Mayfield Road to the north, Overlook Road to the west and Coventry Road to the east frame the Euclid Heights Historic District, according to a flier included with this article from the City of Cleveland Heights.
Many buildings in the Coventry Village Business District are included as well as all buildings on the north side of Cedar Road in the Cedar Fairmount district, said Kara Hamley O'Donnell, historic preservation planner for Cleveland Heights, by email.
The city will host a public meeting to provide information about the history of the area and the nomination process at 7 p.m. Monday at The Alcazar in the music room.
