I contacted Cleveland’s Economic Development Department with aspirations of moving my business from Medina Ohio into the City of Cleveland. My dreams of finding the right building were described including price range and desired location. I was able to find a building. I then moved roughly 40 jobs from Medina to the City of Cleveland. This was a very exciting process and the passion of the individuals in Cleveland’s Economic Development inspired me to explore further how I can purchase other vacant properties in Cleveland to create jobs. I believe there is a perception that Cleveland does not work hard to create new jobs. However Cleveland’s Economic Development completely contradicts this. I was extremely surprised by the passion of this department. My experience with vacant properties and Cleveland’s Economic Development truly makes me proud to be a Clevelander.
