Vacant Land becomes community asset in the Village of Glenwillow

Through the collaborative work between the Village of Glenwillow and the Cuyahoga Land Bank, and the persistence efforts of Mayor Mark Cegelka and the Cuyahoga Land Bank’s attorney, Doug Sawyer, a key piece of property was acquired by the Village for future use.Land Bank Staff
The ten acre parcel is located at the cul-de-sac end of Bond Street which is an industrial corridor on the west side of the Village.   Bond Street is currently home to over twenty businesses and was recently improved with curbs, gutters and landscaping. The vacant land parcel had been in foreclosure since early 2013 and the opportunity for productive development was uncertain.
The Village decided to acquire the parcel for a public trail head and proposed multi-purpose trail that runs along Tinkers Creek on the east side of the parcel.  Another potential use is for a future service department building.
Mayor Mark Cegelka stated that “even though both projects are still in the planning stages, the acquisition of this property gave us the incentive to move forward on these improvements for our community.”  The Mayor added that “he and the Village Council are grateful for the assistance and cooperation of the professional staff at the Cuyahoga Land Bank in seeing this project to fruition.”
