Cleveland Lead Safe Network (CLSN) is hosting our Summer Convening on Thursday July 27th at 4PM at 3500 Lorain Avenue.
We're pleased to have Councilman Larry Sykes from Toledo City Council as our guest speaker. Councilman Sykes was instrumental in getting the Toledo Lead Safe Housing ordinance enacted one year ago. He was also active in the effort to fight off State Pre-emption of local lead poisoning laws.
We expect to have a presentation on the proposed Lead Safe Housing ordinance that is being prepared for Cleveland City Council.
