June 16, 2017 Construction Update

Traffic lanes that were temporarily closed  on June 15th from Grandview east on Fairmount Blvd. are now open.  Parking for Cedar Fairmount businesses are assesible..  There is parking behind Heights Medical Building on Fairmount, Dave’s Market for their customers, behind Buffalo Wild Wings, the lot behind Firestone Tire, Public Garage behind Heights Center Building and the lot behind Nighttown Restaurant.  Sidewalks are walkable.  Business continues as usual at Cedar Fairmount.  Parking is free Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Work is continuing on the multi-purpose path along Cedar-Glen Parkway. Perk is almost complete with the installation of the drainage structures, and is tentatively planning on laying stone for the path next week.

Casting adjustments and ADA ramps have been completed on the south side of the street from Westminster to Norfolk. The work zone will be flipping over to the north side of the street today, and pavement milling will commence on the North side next week.

Cedar Road Accelerated Pipeline Replacement PIR-2083

Red Dirt has installed the new mainline on the south side of the road from Harcourt up to Grandview. They recently discovered an existing water leak at Dave’s Supermarket which forced them to stop work temporarily. Cleveland Water came out to investigate the leak and determined that it is on the customer side of the shut-off going to Dave’s Supermarket.

Red Dirt has resumed work as of today, and has not experienced any major set-backs.



Construction started in March within the Cedar Fairmount Business District for a multitude of improvements starting with the replacement of the natural gas pipelines by Dominion East Ohio Gas. The gas line replacement should be completed in July, as well as Phase 1 of the resurfacing of Cedar Road from Taylor to Norfolk. The total project is expected to cost almost $4 Million.
Phase 2 of the Cedar Road Resurfacing/Cedar Fairmount Streetscape project from Norfolk to the intersection of Cedar and Euclid Heights Blvd. is predicted to begin sometime in July. This consists of road resurfacing and new ADA Compliant Curb Ramps, sidewalks, and sidewalk amenities from Fairmount Boulevard to Euclid Heights Boulevard, including new trees, removal of unused electric poles, new flower planters, benches, trash cans, and bike racks. A multi-use pedestrian and bicycle path is almost complete along the Cedar Glen Parkway from Euclid Heights Boulevard to Ambleside Drive in Cleveland. The time table for Phase 2 is approximately 6 – 8 weeks.

The Metabolic Approach to Cancer

Many of you are aware that Dr Erin brought her colleague, Dr. Nasha Winters, to Cleveland earlier this year to train a group of physicians about Mistletoe (Viscum album Extract), an immunomodulating cancer therapy. Dr. Erin is now bringing another significant part of Dr. Winters’ amazing encyclopedic brain to her patients -and you- by sharing the Metabolic Approach to Cancer at Options.

Having overcome this incredibly complex and mysterious disease process herself 25 years ago (Stage IV Ovarian cancer, no easy feat!), Dr. Nasha is sharing her knowledge for the world to see in these information-dense pages. Co-written by the founder of Remission Nutrition, master nutritionist Jess Higgins Kelley, it is full of dietary advice and revelations that will get you thinking to reconsider what you always thought was health food.

Whether you are trying to prevent yourself from ever getting cancer, trying to avoid a recurrence or deep in the struggle right now, this is a book you MUST read. It is a wonderful resource for those who are seeking to improve their overall health and learn how to manage this toxic world us humans have created. Honestly, it is the first and only book Dr. Erin feels comfortable recommending to ALL patients when asked “What should I read to learn more about this process?”

Some of you may have experienced frustration over missing products or minor errors lately.

Travels with Charley
by John Steinbeck

In September 1960, John Steinbeck and his poodle, Charley, embarked on a journey across America. A picaresque tale, this chronicle of their trip meanders along scenic backroads and speeds along anonymous superhighways, moving from small towns to growing cities to glorious wilderness oases. Travels with Charleyis animated by Steinbeck’s attention to the specific details of the natural world and his sense of how the lives of people are intimately connected to the rhythms of nature – to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among people is evident, too, as he records the interests and obsessions that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.

On the Road
by Jack Keruoac
Inspired by Jack Kerouac’s adventures with Neal Cassady, On the Road tells the story of two friends whose cross-country road trips are a quest for meaning and true experience. Written with a mixture of sadeyed naivete and wild ambition and imbued with Kerouac’s love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz, On the Road is the quintessential American vision of freedom and hope, a book that changed American literature and changed anyone who has ever picked it up.Click here to register.
Monday, August 14, 7-9 pm
by David Arnold

After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the “wastelands” of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland. So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.

Utopia Drive
(Farrar, Straus & Giroux)
by Erik Reese
(Note: paperback will be available for purchase in August)

For Erik Reece, life was good. And yet he couldn’t ignore his conviction that, in fact, the good ol’ United States was in the midst of great social, environmental, and political crises. Where did we — here, in the land of Jeffersonian optimism and better tomorrows — go wrong?  Reece turned to those who had dared to imagine radically different futures for America. What followed was a road trip through the sites of America’s utopian communities, both historical and contemporary, known and unknown successful and catastrophic. He uncovered not just a series of lost histories and broken visionaries but also a continuing and vital, but hidden, idealistic tradition.Utopia Drive is an important and definitive reconstruction of that tradition. It is also, perhaps, a new framework to help us find a genuinely sustainable way forward.

May 23 Streetscape Update

May 23 Streetscape Update

The gas line construction is tentatively scheduled to be completed around the middle to end of June. They are just finishing up the north side of the street, and will be preparing to flip the entire operation to the south side of Cedar. East Ohio Gas has run into some set-backs, and so they won’t be able  to say with any certainty that they will be finished by a specific date, but a safe guess would be the middle to end of June.

As for the Streetscape, the City of Cleveland Heights  intends to have a meeting with the business owners as we get closer to the construction date for the streetscape. Currently based on the initial schedule that Perk submitted, they will be working within the area between Euclid Heights and Norfolk sometime around the middle of July. But that date can be sooner or later depending on if they run into any road blocks (i.e. weather, unforeseen conditions, etc.) or not, .A safe guess will be the beginning to middle of July (but this can be subject to change).
