Honestly, I don’t have a clue. But do know where you can find out.
Tomorrow, Thursday, May 21st, from 5:30 – 7:00 PM, District 3 Councilmember Nancy Nadel will be hosting an informational meeting about the progress on the Cleveland Cascade restoration project. The meeting will take place at the foot of the Cleveland Cascade between 2250 and 2300 Lakeshore Avenue.
The full backstory can be found at the Cleveland Cascade website, but in brief: We used to have this lovely fountain pouring down towards Lake Merritt along Clevehand Heights hill.
Then, over time, it got all run down. The water was shut off and it got overgrown and then, like five years ago, a group of neighbors decided to get together and try to restore it, and begun excavation work to uncover the fountain.
And then the renovation project got $300,000 of Measure DD funds. Additional private funds were raised to cover design costs, and now, the first phase of the renovation project will be going to bid soon.
Tomorrow’s meeting will offer an update on the project’s progress and an overview on the improvements that will be made in the first phase.
