CITY MOVES FORWARD WITH CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION 
Mural selected for Noble Road Began Installation on July 19

Cleveland Heights, OH, July 20, 2021 - This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Cleveland Heights officially becoming a city. Throughout the year, the City has promoted various activities for residents and guests to take part in and enjoy the history and beauty of Cleveland Heights. There have been walking tours, garden tours, webinars on the history of various landmarks and so much more. Also, 100 Year banners have decorated the City since early this year.
 
We are proud to announce that Cleveland Heights resident Adam May was the top choice and carried the majority of votes. Adam took the time to describe his vision: “The idea behind the mural is a field of vibrantly colored handprints forming the foundation from which beautiful flowers bloom. This is a metaphor about how a diverse collection of people is the foundation for a strong community and by working together hand in hand we can make our world grow into something beautiful. It's a symbol that not only are all welcome here, but all are important here for the success of our community.” 
 
Adam moved to Cleveland Heights in 2019 from Youngstown, Ohio specifically because of how diverse and unique this city is. Adam is an architect, musician, yogi, cyclist, animal-loving vegetarian. “Most weekends you can find me frequenting one or more of our amazing restaurants and pubs discussing science, music, politics, or health with a total stranger and enjoying a pint of local craft beer.”
 
Painting/installation began on Monday and is expected to be completed by the end of this week.
 
A final Centennial celebration will take place on August 3, starting at 6:00pm, at the Cleveland Heights Community Center. This will be in conjunction with the CHPD Annual Safety Forces Night Out, which is a fun, family event. At the celebration, the City will be collecting items from residents to go into the 100 year time-capsule. There will also be a giant 6-foot anniversary card for residents to sign. Additionally, there will be commemorative items available to residents who attend. The City is encouraging all residents to stop by and donate a memento/picture/letter for the time-capsule.
 
“Cleveland Heights is a city that values the preservation of landmarks, respects its history and is committed to a positive future,” City Manager Susanna Niermann O’Neil stated. “All are Welcome is a slogan but it is meaningful and true. The City is as strong as it is because of its commitment to diversity and the ongoing effect of community involvement.”
 
Cleveland Heights is an inner-ring city just five minutes to University Circle and ten minutes to major hospitals and world-class museums. It prides itself on its welcoming, inclusive and diverse population. It is a walkable and bikeable community that embraces its many parks and tree-lined streets.
