Eastlake residents to celebrate new TOPS geozone

Jules James, an Eastlake resident who worked for years to get more access to TOPS@Seward School for neighborhood kids, says there will be a little celebrating Friday of the school board’s recent vote to approve a geographic zone for the school.

The geographic zone will allow for more predictable access to the school for Eastlake children.

The informal celebration will begin at 6:15 p.m. Friday (Jan. 28) at Pazzo’s, 2307 Eastlake Ave. E. 

“Bring along the family,” James says in an e-mail. “Come have dinner, hoist a beer. Or wine. Or milk with the kids!”

James recently informed the Eastlake Community Council that, after having served for years as the neighborhood’s representative to the TOPS@Seward Site Council, he would be stepping down from the position at the end of June, or sooner if a replacement could be found.
