For the Love of CLE: It Takes a Neighborhood

July 18, 2017

An engaged citizenry can draw investment dollars, create a stable tax base, attract new residents and amenities, and limit the spread of crime. Lee-Harvard accomplished this by creating many of the city’s first citizen’s councils and neighborhood. Most residents have remained in Lee-Harvard for decades and high residential voter turnout and steadfast commitment to the neighborhood ensures low vacancy rates, lures new industrial investment upwards of $40 million. Detroit-Shoreway’s revitalization was spurred, in part, by its residents. The Gordon Square Arcade was rehabilitated in 1980. Cleveland Public Theatre followed in 2006 and a new Capitol Theatre debuted in 2009. Buoyed by these efforts, local organizations and churches took the initiative to create a new Arts District master plan that featured a more walkable Detroit Avenue and better connections to the lakefront.

How did the residents of these two neighborhoods come together to have such an impact? What can emerging neighborhoods learn from their success and the challenges the encountered along the way?

Food trucks will be out, arrive early, grab lunch, and be part of the conversation.
