Thank you to the Beachwood voters for passing issue 1! The Ward Club endorsed Issue 1 and provided both financial support and volunteer time and energy towards the effort for its passage. Hundreds of people around Beachwood worked hard to educate voters on the benefits of having new and renovated buildings to support the upcoming decades of education for our children. This campaign included unprecedented collaboration between the City and the District to balance the needs of the schools while maintaining a business-friendly tax environment. In the end, the voters delivered a convincing “Yes” vote, which demonstrates our city’s commitment to its future.

In the coming weeks and months, the District will be working with the community on the next steps in the journey to replace Byden and Hilltop, and to renovate Fairmount.
