Memorial Health Systems is bringing its first ever urgent care facility to Cleveland.

The building permit to complete the interior work was approved in May. According to Jason Medeiros of Pointe General Contractors, the company that completed the work, the project began on May 15 and was completed this month.

The facility, located in Mouse Creek Crossing, is expected to open in July.

Josh Ball with public information for Memorial Health Systems said this was the first urgent care facility the company was opening.

The urgent care office was one of eight addition or alteration building permits approved in the city of Cleveland last month.

These permits brought in $1,537 in fees and represented $269,594 in projects. A pool building and Cleveland’s first growler store were among the other projects.

Growler stores, which sell craft beer in glass or ceramic jugs, were permitted in Cleveland by recent changes to city ordinances allowing the sale of such beer.

The ordinance allows for “three shot glasses or 5.5 ounces” to be tasted in the premises. The focus of a growler store is to be a retail store, not a bar or pub.

Robert McGowan approached the Cleveland City Council last year about allowing the unique retail establishment.

McGowan’s store Mash & Hops will open on Church Street across from the Cleveland Police department.

According to a previous Cleveland Daily Banner article, “Mash & Hops will carry 14 craft beers on tap, rotating them due to season and demand. It would not produce any beverages on-site. All draft beer will be transported from a manufacturing facility or distributor center. Distilled spirits or wines will not be sold out of the store, only premium craft beer.”

Four commercial building permits were approved representing $580,000 in projects and bringing in $2,290 in fees. These included a kitchen expansion of Broad Street United Methodist Church’s Unity Center, a pool building and a 24-hour climate control facility.

Residential building permits were approved for single-family homes, a garage and a basement. The eight permits brought represented $957,515 in value and brought in $3,820 to the City of Cleveland.

May’s 20 building permits is an increase over the 14 approved in April. The projects approved in May brought in $7,647 an increase over April’s $4,756 in revenue.

Seven land disturbance permits bringing in $230 were also approved.
