Re: “Maple Heights Mayor Annette Blackwell on the Successes and Struggles of One of the Region's Oldest Suburbs

Blackwell is a piss poor mayor. Prepare for Black Flight. Not all Maple Heights residents live in poverty, but are subjected to it by those surrounding us. Stop whining about what needs to be fixed and fix it. I'm tired of seeing your mug with every publicity grab. Warrensville and Garfield face similar challenges. You don't see their mayors posing in front of closed buildings. get over yourself Blackwell.

Re: “Maple Heights Mayor Annette Blackwell on the Successes and Struggles of One of the Region's Oldest Suburbs

The tone of this article is not good - as pointed out by other comments. Dropping point-of-sale inspections only sets up a repeat of the flipping that resulted in Slavic Village. Not a surprise, some of the same dirty players are involved. Why is Slavic Village Development Corporation working in another city, when their HUD funding through the Cleveland City Councilman Tony Brancatelli is FOR CLE - not Maple Heights. It is long past due, for the Attorney General to investigate Tony B and his Slavic Village CDC emails. He also chairs the Land Bank, which should NOT be witing out debt for the city of Maple Heights, which already struggles to fund services. Whose outstanding liens were let go under the former County Treasurer Jim Rokakis - and the now departed Cuyahoga County Fiscal Agent Dennis Kennedy? Finally, if a resident does not work and does not understand insurance and how to maintain a home - they SHOULD not own a home. Never fear -- CHN Partners is part of the CDC/Land Bank racket and they have restructured to absorb NHS - ran into the ground by Michael Cosgrove - disgraced former head of Cleveland's Community Development Department.

Unlike the days of yesteryear of Maple Heights, I think this is an exact representation of the Maple Heights of today.

Wahhh, i'mma report you when I disagree with your opinion... wahhh... and that therin lies the problem in itself. And it's no wonder....

"The most violent element in society is ignorance"

Our new maple heights denizens proves that statement in itself to be majority true.

Yep, here you go... your city now... show US what you do with your newly acquired territory, ole' wise ones... I'll watch as long as I can see...

Wow! Dindu Nuffins could have made his or her points with clarity, but instead resorts to shuck and jive language. It's sad how far we have fallen when we can't have a discussion without falling into such sad cliches. Hope Dindu and Jim Crow are enjoying their pas de deux.

Re: “Maple Heights Mayor Annette Blackwell on the Successes and Struggles of One of the Region's Oldest Suburbs

The tiny, secret, racist "Mourning Maple Heights" group mentioned in the article is hardly representative of the denizens of Maple Heights, past and present. Check out the "You Know You're From Maple Heights If...." Facebook group if you want to see civic pride, past and PRESENT, which celebrates all the good things happening in our city today.

Budish raising values 7% means so little. It's just a way to grab more money, not a reflection of what you can sell the house for.

Close to $1M for the Weber building - seriously. Again - federal monies squandered by corrupt local officials.

Re: “Early Feedback on Cleveland's New Micro-Mobility Rides

Saw three kids, all under the age of 10 or 12, hop on a single scooter and take off down the sidewalk at Tremont's Art and Cultural Festival and they're not the first children I have seen riding on one. And I have yet to see a single rider wearing a helmet. A little oversight would be good.

Re: “Early Feedback on Cleveland's New Micro-Mobility Rides

I love how people who only drive cars think bicyclists and scooters are the only bad apples on the road. Cars take up a ton more room, go way faster, and kill a lot more people without a doubt. If the streets of America were designed for more than just cars...and pedestrians if we have to...then scooters and bicycles would be more common and everyone would be safer for it. These scooters are a long-overdue innovation, and I don't think they're a fad anymore than those horseless carriages were over 100 years ago.

Thanks for actually doing some research rather than sounding like a stodgy old Plain Dealer editorialist.

Thank you for this article. I've been waiting for someone to do a price and subscription model comparison. (The news coverage was good too.)

Re: “Early Feedback on Cleveland's New Micro-Mobility Rides

The speed limit is by far the biggest issue with the scooters. They don't move quick enough to confidently command a place on the road.

Re: “Early Feedback on Cleveland's New Micro-Mobility Rides

While most scooters are out of the way and most scooter operators follow the rules, there are always a few bad apples.

On a short walk to lunch downtown I moved 3 scooters out of the middle of sidewalks. One of them loudly beeped at me, demanding to be put down. Sheesh, was just trying to help.

Re: “Early Feedback on Cleveland's New Micro-Mobility Rides

Oh goodie. Scooter riders don't feel safe in the street where they're supposed to ride, so they're driving on the sidewalks, where they're prohibited from doing so. Can't see this ending badly.

- A guy who was nearly mowed down last summer by a schmuck on a Bird, motoring down the sidewalk on 9th.
