Lead Resource Fair
Webpage is under construction. Come back soon!
Reports from Exhibitors
Ellie at the SoilSHOP table reports: We had a total of 3 soilSHOP participants. One person had lead values that were very high, Shannon from EPA Region 5 will be following up with her. Another community member was able to use the screen to determine they had a safe area to install a swing set/ play area in their backyard.
There were 26 registered guests although there were many more people browsing around.
9 were from East Cleveland
4 were from Cleveland
2 were from Cleveland Heights and
2 were from South Euclid.
Some interesting questions
Will Cleveland Water department test water in a high rise building?
A landlord asked: Why do I have to test every two years?
Who should have included?
It might be helpful to have some homeowners (that utilized public funding) briefly share their successful lead remediation/abatement stories and encourage people to stop by the board of health's table.
Just wanted to say it was a great event! Thank you!
Could this be a model for next year's Lead Safe Resource Fair?

No food allowed in the Library.
👈 Exhibitors are encouraged to give a 15 minute presentation in the Main Auditorium. Library has an AV system. You may bring a program on a USB stick or bring your laptop.
If you need assistance during the event, CLASH volunteers will be wearing CLASH T-shirts.
Set up: We'll be loading from the side entrance on Elsinore Ave beginning around 9.30 AM. If there's no one at the door when you arrive, call 216-374-6357.
After you are unloaded, you have a couple parking options. There's patron parking behind the Library off Bryn Mawr. There's public parking at the RTA parking lot further east on Euclid. There's street parking on the east side of Elsinore and on Euclid Avenue in front of the library. There's an *unused* church parking lot across Elsinore. We have tried to reach the church owners to get permission, to no avail. When not loading, please use the front entrance to the library. (see map below)
Here's how the Resource Fair will work.
Exhibitors will receive an information packet when they set up.
Residents will register at the entrance to the exhibition area.
Each registered participant will receive a card that they will present to the exhibitor when they visit your table.
If they ask a question or take your literature, you put a sticker by your organization's name.
The first 50 participants who return a registration card with 5 exhibitor stickers will qualify for a $10 Amazon gift card.
