Central neighborhood

Signal Cleveland is excited to announce a special project — Community focus: Central. We’ll be listening to residents in the Central neighborhood and building a list of the stories and issues they want us to write about throughout 2023.

Leading this work are our community reporter Najee Hall and a dynamic listening team including Cleveland Documenters Kellie Morris, LaQueta Worley, Marvetta Rutherford and Teela Patterson along with Lila Parker. Look for this team at community events and gathering spaces around Central asking, “What’s important to you?”

We believe residents should be at the center of local news and information so that we can build a better and more sustainable future for our communities. We want to hear from people of every age, race, income, ability and political viewpoint. 

Connect with us–online, in person or via text–and share your thoughts about the Central neighborhood!
