Dear Neighbors,
 
I hope youíre enjoying the summer and the opportunities available in our community. Our pools have been bustling, our parks have seen their share of families, couples and neighbors walking and picnicking, and our baseball and soccer fields are busy with our children enjoying the great weather.
 
We are fortunate that Lyndhurst is able to provide these recreational areas and services for all to enjoy. But wait. There is even more to do this summer in Lyndhurst. New this year is the fitness/walking trail in Brainard Park, completed earlier this year with a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. In additional to fitness equipment, the trail has a rain garden and a wildflower area. My wife and I have taken advantage of the half-mile trail, and it is great fun and really nice. The trail begins and ends at the Brainard pool parking lot.
 
2007 marks the 90th birthday of our great city. In 1917, the voters, all 63 of them, of what was known as Euclid Township voted to incorporate. On August 7, 1917, the Village of Euclidville was born. A few years later, in 1920, the name Lyndhurst was adopted. But thatís a story for another newsletter. So to honor this milestone birthday, we will celebrate our 90 years at Lyndhurst Home Days, September 7-9 in Lyndhurst Park. On Sunday, September 9, we will sing Happy Birthday and serve birthday cake in the big tent. Please come out and join your neighbors and friends.
 
Just a few gentle reminders about ways we can keep our neighborhoods looking vibrant and inviting. Because we are all busy making our yards look beautiful and clean, through late fall we will continue our weekend rubbish drop-off (Saturdays and Sundays 11:30 AM-3:30 PM) in the City Hall parking lot. Also, please do not place your rubbish on your tree lawn before 5:00 PM the night before your collection or later than 7:00 AM on collection day. You must remove empty containers from the tree lawn the same day your collection is made (the city is not responsible for these containers). Following these guidelines will ensure that our neighborhoods continue to look clean and nice.
 
You may be thinking about home repair and improvement projects or purchasing a home for the first time. The city, along with the Cuyahoga County Department of Development, offers a variety programs to Lyndhurst residents. Brochures on these programs — down payment assistance, home rehabilitation loans, and home weatherization assistance, will be available at City Hall. Or contact the Department of Development at (216) 443-7260.
 
Lyndhurst is our hometown, and we all need to work together to continue to keep it a great place to live, play, and retire too. I hope the remainder of your summer is safe and enjoyable. As always, I hope to see you out in the parks and neighborhoods, and especially at Home Days. Please feel free to contact me or any member of the City Hall staff if you need assistance.
 
Respectfully,
 
Joseph M. Cicero Jr., Mayor
