CITY LIFE: MEET YOUR NEIGHBORS

 
Sandra Robertson
Sandra Robertson has her roots in Glenville – literally! The retired police officer is a resident and community gardener in the neighborhood, and in October won the NeighborWorks America Dorothy Richardson award for her garden, Ashbury Sprouts. The beautiful patch of green space has over twenty dedicated volunteers and is a neighborhood gem. Sandra enjoys bringing fresh food to her neighbors, many of whom don’t have easy access to healthy foods. She also coordinates activities for kids, and seniors alike, to help them become connected to the land they live and play on. Sandra loves her neighborhood and helping fellow residents, but at the end of the day, she says “it’s fun to play in the dirt….and there is nothing like a fresh tomato that doesn’t taste like cardboard.”

 
Tia Davis
Why she loves living in Cleveland with her husband Chris and daughter Ellie: “It’s been a joy to watch Old Brooklyn grow and improve over the last 15 years. It’s awesome to take a walk around the neighborhood, stopping front porch to front porch to visit with neighbors. We also love the diversity of Ellie’s school and the different experiences she has because of it. We are so happy here.”Tia lives in Old Brooklyn and is a Consultant for Inbloom Consulting in Brecksville. Tia and her family moved to Old Brooklyn in 2003. They have grown to love the neighborhood and now plan to be lifelong residents.  She loves being no more than twenty minutes from everything, meeting up with her neighbors and hiking in the nearby Metroparks.


Ulysses Stokes
Ulysses works as a Student Recruitment Coordinator for Breakthrough Schools. He lives in Tremont, and in his free time loves to play on local recreational sports teams around the city. He really appreciates how rec sports create opportunities to meet new people and build a stronger sense of community.
Why he loves living in Cleveland: “I love the fact that Cleveland has three major sports teams located downtown. Not many places can host a World Series, a championship basketball team, and an NFL team in the same weekend within blocks of each other. Even if the Browns are awful.”
