Vacant land reuse mapping workshop

Learn how to use the Ohio GreenPrint to research, map and plan for vacant land reuse in Cleveland. The Trust for Public Land (TPL), the City of Cleveland, KSU Urban Design Center and Neighborhood Progress are collaborating to provide a wealth of data and mapping capability through the impressive TPL Ohio GreenPrint online data and mapping program. This tool will assist community development corporations, civic and environmental organizations, and urban farming/gardening groups to access, query and map data on land vacancy, ownership, soil types, hydrology and other key conditions. You will also learn about a new grant resource that will be available this spring for creative land reuse projects such as community or market gardens, rain gardens, landscaped gateways, phyto- and bio-remediation of contaminated soils, off street parking with pervious paving, and more.

Choose from one of two, three-hour sessions on Tuesday, April 28. Either 9am-12noon or 1-4pm. One person per organization, please. A 2nd staff person from the organization can put their name on a waiting list and may be able to participate if there is space available. No GIS skills needed. Sorry ? because space is limited, we cannot accommodate single individuals with project ideas who are not part of an organization.
