A Euclid trucking business plans to expand its operation with a recent purchase of an adjacent property from the City of Euclid. The owners of Dellriver Services, Cleveland residents John and Kathy Broadway, officially acquired the property on the Cleveland-Euclid border in late July. The City aquired the property in 2017 at no cost through the tax foreclosure process after the death of the previous owner left the former automotive and towing business vacant for several years. The City sold the building to the Broadways after a public request for proposals.
The Broadways will use the building for maintenance and repairs of their trucking equipment and plan to demolish a defunct detail shop at the front of the property. Dellriver Services transports a variety of materials from paper and plastics to small machinery. The couple also owns two other parcels on the lot and plan to build a home on the land.
The Cuyahoga Land Bank completed critically needed Phase I and Phase II environmental assessments on the property. “The Cuyahoga Land Bank continues to be a great partner in property renovations, abandoned property demolitions and land reuse opportunity projects like this one in our City,” said Kirsten Holzheimer Gail, Mayor of the City of Euclid.
