Many know the basics of the Christmas story and the main characters – baby Jesus, his mother Mary and her husband Joseph. But did you know that in addition to playing a leading role in the Christmas story, St. Joseph is a fellow real estate professional?   According to Rocket Homes, St. Joseph the biblical figure is recognized as the earthly father of Jesus and the husband of Mary.

The City of Cleveland Heights is considering changes to its zoning code that would alter its garage/enclosed parking requirements (Ordinance 70-2021). A public hearing was scheduled for September 30, 2021, but due to no quorum, it was rescheduled for November 1, 2021, at 6:00 pm.
