The Jacubic Post Property
West Creek Conservancy came to an agreement with Post 572 to place a 4 acre conservation easement on the land, and the headwater stream at the end of 2014. In May of 2015, a bridge that had an estimated worth of just over $30,000 was installed. This bridge featured an 8×8 lookout deck, 2 steps, 50 ft. boardwalk, and a 20 ft. bridge.
This property is directly adjacent to the 80+ acres that West Creek preserved and restored, referred to as the former Parmadale property; with long-term hopes that it’ll help connect the greenway connection to Parma’s Veteran Memorial/State Road Park.
The organizations that donated the materials and helped secure funds were (in no particular order): West Creek Conservancy, Kohls Associates in Action, Creeklife.com, Axelrod Buick GMC, iLocalEverywhere.com, Emma Thorne, mKreative, and Peter Bode.
This project is being featured on the City of Cleveland’s office of sustainability’s “Year of Clean Water” video series. Post 572 is, and will continue to be, a leader in connecting veterans, the community, and the environment.
