EDITORIAL: Kudos to the hard-working staff of WPKND


Today is a good day to give major kudos to the hard-working staff of the West Park Kamm’s Neighborhood Development — the community development corporation (CDC) for merchants and residents in Ward 17.

They have been behind-the-scenes of a whirlwind of activity.

Last Thursday, the grand opening of ALDI, was the exclamation point after years of trying to find the right combination of valuable land the size of Public Square. There are now 5 stores on that site.

Saturday, Kamm’s Corners was flowing with goodwill from the annual Hooley. The event has been planned for months.

Sunday, the award-winning weekly Farmers Market began. It continues through October as one of the most popular events of its kind on this side of the Cuyahoga River.

The rest of the summer calendar is filled with events, while behind-the-scenes, staff is working on projects that will stretch into future years.

The CDC’s eight employees and 10 directors enjoy much community suppport. The pace they set, and the direction they provide, continue to keep West Park moving forward.

  We thank them.
