Local Organizations Hosting Meeting Tonight To Discuss Engaging Community in CH-UH Facilities Master Plan

Reaching Heights and FutureHeights will host the meeting at the Lee Road Library at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1

Reaching Heights and are hosting a meeting at the in Room A at 7 p.m. tonight, Aug. 1, to discuss ideas for engaging residents in the Cleveland Heights-University Heights facilities master planning process.

A primary focus of the meeting will be to brainstorm ideas to increase citizen involvement and participation in determining the future of school buildings, said Patrick Mullen, executive director of Reaching Heights.

"The goal is to identify key questions, objections, and areas of agreement in the community, and figure out how to close information gaps that exist, recognizing that ultimate responsibility for placing any bond issue on the ballot rests with the Board of Education," Mullen said. 

The CH-UH Board of Education voted second reading at its meeting July 17 that would have been placed on the November ballot and paid for a large portion of the plan to renovate and reconfigure buildings in the district, known as Plan C.

The work meeting is open to the public.

Ya know, I click on the Heights Observer multiple times a day, and I knew nothing about this. The Patch posts it at 3:09 the day of. And I click on it at 7:44, 44 minutes after it started. That aggravates the Hell out of me.
