Services & Initiatives
The Euclid South CID is honored to be “home” to shops, bars restaurants, and hotels who take pride in creating a welcoming entrance to their business.
Echoing that pride, a precise schedule of twice weekly care and watering of the District’s planters and trees is followed. The maintenance includes a matching schedule for regular cleaning of the sidewalk and streets, emptying curbside trash containers, plus upkeep of the street furniture and lighting.
The Euclid South CID’s primary focus this first year of operation was the Euclid Streetscape Improvements. The project’s completion and the patience of our businesses and neighbors was celebrated at a ribbon cutting.
The CID launched phase one of its marketing and communication strategy by activating a social media campaign with the creation of CWELive Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts. The name accentuates the energetic atmosphere pulsating throughout the District and that Euclid South is a great place to reside.
The Euclid South CID established the Guide Program in February 2016. These well-trained officers work in conjunction with off-duty police officers contracted by the CWE South Special Business District.
Business staff, residents and visitors welcomed the guides in their distinctive and highly visible black and yellow uniforms. Equally evident and unique, the guide’s bike is fully equipped with radio communication and flashing lights.
Daily “calls for (police) service” reports and monthly crime reports are closely monitored. This data supplies the necessary info to make changes to the patrols so any activity and trends are addressed quickly.
Although the crime rate for the City and the nation grew, the added safety services and information helped hold overall Central West End crime numbers at the same level for 2014, 2015 and the first half of 2016.
Steady progress toward a dynamic new streetscape! The $7M Euclid Streetscape Project is a multi-phased plan to thoroughly upgrade the public realm along Euclid, Lindell Boulevard to Forest Park Avenue.
Developed with input from property owners, businesses owners and residents, the plan ensures the design and improvements meet the needs and wishes of the community.
All new sidewalks, pedestrian streetlights, and trees will provide a stronger sense of place, making Euclid even more inviting as residents and visitors enjoy the distinctively walkable opportunities to live, shop, dine, and enjoy entertainment in the heart of the City.
