Public Policy Forum: County Waterfronts and Neighborhood Development

Moderator: Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer Art, Architecture, Urban Design, City Planning Reporter


  • Bobbi Reichtell, Campus District, Inc., Executive Director
  • Brian Zimmerman, Cleveland Metroparks, CEO
  • Jenny Spencer, Managing Director, Detroit Shoreway CDO
  • Joe Roman, Greater Cleveland Partnership, President and CEO

We’ll be discussing Cuyahoga County waterfronts and neighborhood development. Is the county capitalizing on the river and lake as assets? Greater Cleveland’s proximity to one of the Great Lakes and to an historic and scenic river should help the county’s communities attract residents, strengthen the tax base and engender redevelopment of the urban core. But is that happening?

The forum is cosponsored by the CWRU Siegal Lifelong Learning Program, the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland, The Plain Dealer/cleveland.com, and the Lakewood and Cuyahoga County library systems. Corporate sponsor is First Interstate Properties Ltd.
