Birdtown Community Meeting March 25

LakewoodAlive will host a community event in Birdtown on Tuesday, March 25 at Harrison Elementary School, 2080 Quail Street. The event will run from 7-9 p.m. with a brief presentation from LakewoodAlive, the City of Lakewood, Councilwoman Mary Louise Madigan, Charter One bank and Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater Cleveland. The purpose will be to kick off our summer repair rebate program which has been generously supported by Charter One. Residents will also be able to visit with partner organizations to learn about budget and credit counseling, energy efficiency, home repair programs and resources as well as other home maintenance information.

The Birdtown Rebate program will be a first-come, first-served program. Homeowners are eligible if they plan to complete exterior curb appeal projects like perennial landscaping, removal of front yard fences, concrete block, driveway replacement, and roof replacement as well as other exterior home repairs. The grant will be a 10% reimbursement for these types of improvement with a cap at $250. We encourage interested homeowners to contact Allison Urbanek at LakewoodAlive for more information or program qualifications. Allison can be reached at 216-521-0655 or by email,

Come and join us on Tuesday, March 25th from 7-9 p.m. at Harrison Elementary School. Light refreshments will be provided.
