Forum on land use and re-development of inner suburbs / Oakwood Country Club project

A community forum to discuss the issues and long-term implications of redevelopment projects such as that being proposed on the former Oakwood Club property. The event will focus on current and future land-use and development needs, and priorities for Cleveland Heights, University Heights and South Euclid in the context of greater Cleveland.

Three panelists will participate: Terry Schwarz, director of Kent State University's Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative; Ed Jerse, Cuyahoga County director of regional collaboration; and Hunter Morrison, director of the newly formed Northeast Ohio Sustainable Communities Consortium.

Forum speakers will address the following topics: Retail needs and opportunities in Cleveland's eastern suburbs. Housing trends, needs, and opportunities in older suburbs. Long-term and regional perspectives in balancing the needs for green space, maintaining high quality of life, and sustainable revenue streams for local governments.

Sponsored by FutureHeights, which is committed to promoting opportunities for the community to be educated on the issues and participate in the public process. This forum will emphasize that, regardless of the outcome, process is important and citizens should be involved in the decisions that affect them. Decisions about land use and development should take into consideration long-term implications, short-term benefits, and impacts on surrounding communities. Residents of South Euclid, Cleveland Heights and University Heights and any other interested citizens are encouraged to attend.
