Annual Meeting a Success

The Shaker Square Area Community Development Corporation annual meeting was held on April 27. A group of nearly 50 members, board of trustees and employees joined in to hear about the successes of the last year. 

A report by William Beard, SHAD Trustee President, included highlights of the past year's neighborhood stabilization activities, including:

  • Management/ownership of Robbins Shaker West Professional Building, at 11811 Shaker Boulevard, grossing $350,000 year. The building provides an affordable viable option for small businesses and non-profit organizations, and reduces vacancies in the neighborhood
  • Served as a Principal of the Advisory Committee for E.130th St./Drexmore redevelopment project. Other stakeholders include Buckeye Shaker Development Corporation, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, Thriving Communities, Organize Ohio, and Holy Grove Baptist Church. As a result of this collaboration, and numerous individual community activists, three blighted apartments buildings have been razed, and planning sessions for E. 130th St. were held
  • Reestablished security patrol, managed by SHAD, for E.130 St. and contiguous streets (not active for 2017)
  • Participated in variety of community and stakeholder meetings to keep SHAD informed of issues to publicize through the Connection — from Sunbeam School, to housing initiatives, to Fresenius Dialysis Center, to project initiatives (New York Bank)
