Cleveland residents are building Tremont better despite ongoing challenges

TREMONT, Ohio (WOIO) – How does a neighborhood evolve while embracing its unique history? This is the challenge that residents and leaders of Tremont have said they are up to.

As 19 News continues to explore Cleveland’s neighborhoods, our goal is to celebrate the good, shine a light on the struggles, and ask the hard questions that lead to answers.

The May edition of our Building A Better CLE series takes a deeper look at the Tremont neighborhood.

Tremont is one of Cleveland’s oldest neighborhoods, dating back to the early 1800s.

It’s known for its award-winning restaurants, arts scene, quaint shops and churches, as well as events like the Greek Festival every Memorial Day weekend.

Our 3, 4, 5 and 6 pm newscasts will be broadcast live today from the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation.

Hear from local leaders and residents all afternoon as 19 News digs deeper into Tremont.
