The City of Mayfield Heights is a vibrant community led by Mayor Anthony DiCicco and seven council representatives. The City, with a population of approximately 20,000, consists of 5,000 single family homes and a dynamic retail district located along Mayfield Road and SOM Center Road. The Mayfield Road/I-271 interchange access, major road improvements, and a vibrant business community all lend themselves to the city’s appeal and charm. Over 50,000 people access Mayfield Road and SOM Center Road on any given day. There are several office buildings located off of Lander Road that are generally filled to capacity and are the home to many recognizable businesses as well as world headquarters to several large corporations.
At the heart of the City are single family homes, and the high priority Mayfield Heights places on maintaining and exercising programs that support the Housing Code. The City has a Property Maintenance Program as well as Point-of-Sale and Rental License requirements. Property maintenance is vital to the well-being of the community and Mayfield Heights embraces a working relationship with the Cuyahoga Land Bank to support these efforts.
Like other communities, Mayfield Heights has been affected to a certain degree by the nationwide housing and financial crisis.“We are willing to go to any length to protect the homes, the environment of our residents, and the neighborhoods they live in. The Cuyahoga Land Bank is a tremendous asset to our community,” said City of Mayfield Heights Director of Building, Thomas Jamieson, who added “The City of Mayfield Heights is looking forward to the Cuyahoga Land Bank’s help in removing some long time vacant and blighted homes. The homes have been vacant anywhere from three to five years.”
