Akron’s Residents Participate in Recreation Programming Through Survey

Akron’s Residents Participate in Recreation Programming Through Survey

Akron's recreational programming

The Akron ’s parks need the help from its residents. That’s why the city is asking residents to give input through an online survey on Akron’s parks to make improvements.

 

The city asks residents to share their knowledge about recreational amenities, as well as their interests and needs. That will help to develop a strategic plan to improve the community, as well as recreational programming.

 

The survey takes only 5-7 minutes to fill in. And most importantly, it’s anonymous.

 

Mayor Dan Horrigan says that public spaces and recreation are sorts of stimulation for neighborhood development.

 

Horrigan is proud of the recreation service that the city provides.

 

Yet, his goal is to evaluate or change the way they provide services and modernize it.

 

The shortest way to is to ask the citizens what they need from the city government. Asking citizens for their opinion is a way to enhance public engagement.

 

Survey reveals the things that need to be added or improved. Moreover, it finds out how much citizens value existing offerings.

 

The question is how to attract new park users. To do that one should know what people enjoy so that the city can better serve them.

 

Recreation Bureau Manager encouraged Akron residents to use their services and to speak up their mind.

 

There are so-called ‘’friend’s groups’’ near each Akron park. They help to keep the parks clean and inviting.

 

There is a partnership between the city and Friends of the Metro Parks. Is there a better way of succeeding than to gather people for the same goal?

 

For better results, the city came up with a study that includes 161 Akron parks. It covers 3804 acres.

 

There is no age discrimination for Akron’s residents.  11 Akron community centers, as well as Balch Street fitness center is for the use of the resident of any age group.

Drive Up: The New Pick-Up Option Target is Brining to Ohio

Drive Up: The New Pick-Up Option Target is Brining to Ohio

Target has some great news for Ohioans! This week, the company announced that they will be expanding their “Drive Up” service in 5 states, one of which is Ohio.

 

The “Drive Up” service gives customers the option to place an order online or on the Target app and then pick it up outside one of the stores. Customers in Cleveland, Columbus, and many other cities can now get whatever they need while remaining in their vehicle.

 

TargetIt’s very quick and easy! You place your order on the Target app, choose the location that you want, then once you get there all you do is wait in your car by the store. The app will notify you when your order will be ready for pickup so you don’t have to wait.

 

Once you are ready to head to the store, you choose the “I’m on the Way” button to inform the employees that you will be there soon. When you arrive at your designated store, you park in one of the “Drive Up” parking spots and wait for the employee to come out.

 

In a matter of a few minutes, the employee will bring out your order and load it in your vehicle and you’re ready to get on with your day! Quick and easy right?

 

Not every single item in stores will have the “Drive Up” service option. However, the majority will. Worst case scenario, you can also choose the store pick-up option which is just as fast.

 

You will also have to pay for any item when you purchase it with the “Drive Up” option. You cannot pay in store or the employee, it should be done on the app. Otherwise, it will not let your order go through.

 

The first city to get this new service in Ohio is Columbus and the next will be Cleveland. The other cities have not been determined or announced by Target.

 

Terrorist Suspect Caught and Arrested for Terror Plan on Cleveland

Terrorist Suspect Caught and Arrested for Terror Plan on Cleveland

The city of Cleveland was in big relief yesterday after the FBI caught and arrested the man who was planning on bombing downtown Cleveland on Fourth of July.

 

The 48-year-old man is from Maple Heights and his name is Demetrius N. Pitts.

 

He caught authorities’ attention when he started following the Facebook page of Al-Qaida, a terrorist organization.

 

Pitts was born in America and used to live in Philadelphia. It is believed he was also attempting to attack people in Philadelphia.

 

According to investigators, Pitts has two other names, Abdur Raheem Rafeeq and Salah ad-Deem Osama Waleed.

 

The affidavit supporting this case claims that Pitts revealed anti-American actions in the years of 2015 through 2017. However, this year an undercover FBI agent tricked Pitts into believing he is part of the al-Qaida organization as well.

 

June 22nd is when the undercover agent met Pitts and found out about his desire to attack downtown Cleveland on Fourth of July.

 

Police have not revealed whether Pitts had access to bombing equipment or if he was able to create an explosive by himself. However, they claim that Pitts had “the desire and intent” to attack the city during the parade.

 

However, the police department later stated that the arrest was made to be cautious if he were to take any action tomorrow. “Law enforcement cannot sit back and wait for Mr. Pitts to commit a violent attack,” said Stephen Anthony, an FBI Special Agent.

 

While he was undercover, FBI provided Pitts with a phone and a bus pass to see what he would do with his plans to tour the Coast Guard Station.

 

Pitts was on a mission to “destroy the government.” Luckily, he did not succeed.

 

If all goes well, Pitts should be facing jail time for at least 20 years.

 

An Attempted Terror Attack Has Been Prevented in Downtown Cleveland

An Attempted Terror Attack Has Been Prevented in Downtown Cleveland

A man from Maple Heights plotted to set off a bomb at the 4th of July fireworks celebration in downtown Cleveland to “strike at the values at the very core of our nation,” according to the officials.

 

Demetrius N. Pitts, 48, expressed a desire to join al Qaeda and kill U.S. citizens — including military personnel and their families. He told the undercover agent of his plot to conduct a July 4 attack on Voinovich Park, where the fireworks are set off each year, authorities said Monday during a news conference announcing Pitts’ arrest.

 

“Just last week, this defendant was walking around downtown Cleveland conducting reconnaissance on what he believed was a large-scale attack,” U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio Justin Herdman said. “He looked for a place to park a van full of explosives.”

 

Cleveland terror attackThe FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Pitts on Sunday afternoon. He will appear later Monday in federal court, Herdman said. Pitts faces a maximum of 20 years in federal prison if he is convicted, Herdman said.

 

Pitts is a U.S. citizen and Philadelphia native, but he became radicalized and is also known by the names Abdur Raheem Rafeeq and Salah ad-Deem Osama Waleed.

 

Pitts met the undercover agent June 22 in Walton Hills. During the meeting he told the undercover agent of his desire to conduct a terrorist attack during the Fourth of July celebration in downtown Cleveland, authorities said. “What would hit them at their core?” Those were his words told to the undercover agent, according to the affidavit. “Blow up in the, have a bomb blow up the Fourth of July parade.”

 

Stephen Anthony, FBI Special Agent in Charge,  declined to say during the news conference if Pitts had access to, or can make, an explosive. But Pitts had the “desire and intent” to conduct the attack, Anthony said.

 

The attack was planned to be at Voinovich Park. He was also pleased the location is near the U.S. Coast Guard station and the Anthony J. Celebrezze Federal Building, the affidavit says.

 

Pitts told the undercover agent he planned to travel to downtown Cleveland to conduct reconnaissance on the area. The undercover agent texted Pitts on June 22 and indicated al Qaeda “brothers” would provide him a bus pass and a cellphone. A confidential source then met Pitts on July 25 in Maple Heights and gave him the items, authorities said.

 

Pitts texted the undercover agent the following day to say he’d completed his reconnaissance, and that he wanted to “destroy the government,” the affidavit says. He subsequently met with the confidential source to the return the cell phone, so its content could be given to al Qaeda “brothers,” the affidavit says.

 

Pitts met the undercover agent for a final time on Sunday. He explained his plan to travel back to his hometown of Philadelphia, so he could conduct reconnaissance for a future attack there, the affidavit says. The undercover agent reminded Pitts that people would die in a potential terrorist attack, but Pitts responded by saying he did not care and had no regrets, the affidavit says.

 

Pitts has an extensive criminal history, including prior convictions for felonious assault, domestic violence and carrying concealed weapons, Anthony said.

 

There is no approved information about the Pitt’s home investigation.

 

Police Chief Calvin Williams said the Cleveland police department will have additional police officers on duty, as is standard for all holiday celebrations or large events. Officers on duty will have a heightened sense of vigilance, Williams said, but he also asked residents to report any suspicious activity.

 

Pay extra attention to people around you and be safe. Happy 4th of July!
