A while back someone asked me, “Why do you want to invest in Maple?” I have thought much about that question since then and can now answer it with confidence: I am investing in Maple because it is where God has put me, it is my home − and our City still has potential.
In 2011, my wife and I bought a foreclosed home in Maple and fixed it up ourselves. Just like our house, I think that our City has potential, but it needs some work. The questions is: are we prepared to do it?
Maple Heights has been adrift of direction and leadership for years. The signs of neglect are really starting to show. Sure, it the City is a little worse for wear, but it is not beyond hope.
With insightful leadership and clear direction, we can turn our City around.
