Mayor Katie Gallagher

Welcome to the City of Brooklyn! A strong and vibrant community located centrally in the heart of Cuyahoga County. Brooklyn is the perfect place to live, work and play. Generations of families, businesses and workers have been proud to call Brooklyn home and we think you will too. Come see for yourself all that Brooklyn has to offer.

While the Building Department is currently closed, we are still available for registration, plan and permit submittals by mail or email (best method). Due to the ‘Stay At Home Order’ expect some delay in our processes. After approval, payment can be made by credit card over the phone or a check may be sent. Depending on the scope of work, inspections may be done remotely (email photos/video) or at a later date. Contact us so we can safely work out the details needed for your project. The Exterior Property Maintenance Grant is still a go. The County has just awarded the $50,000 grant to match the City provided funds for the $100,000 program that was so popular last year.

SHRED DAY

The Shred Day originally scheduled for April 18 at the Recreation Center parking lot has been rescheduled for August 1 from 10:00am to 1:00pm
