Medical Mart, a good idea?

The Medical Mart: It sounds like a good idea, but is it? Do Cuyahoga County taxpayers really understand this half-a-billion dollar project?

These were the questions urban planning professor William Bowen posed to his class this summer. His students did their homework and found some very interesting answers. Attend this forum to learn more about the Medical Mart and convention center, its projected costs and benefits to the community, the success of similar projects in other cities, and how to determine the rationale for using public money to subsidize private enterprise.Michelle DistefanoWendy NaylorFran MentchEmil Liszniansky(students in Urban Spatial Structures, UST605, summer 2008)Moderator: Professor Norman Krumholz
