The foreclosure crisis in Cuyahoga County did not happen overnight. Similarly, the strategies for moving our communities and residents Beyond Foreclosure will take time to evolve. Over the coming year, the Levin College Forum will focus on strategies, tactics and projects that are new, creative, environmentally sustainable and invigorating to the marketplace. Challenging times are not new to Cleveland, and on this issue, where no roadmap exists, we have an opportunity to create a new path to our future.
What do we want the 2020 census say about our region, our cities, our residents and our neighborhoods? What are the tactics and strategies we can employ now to make this happen?
Join us as we work together, Building our Future Beyond Foreclosure. Be part of the conversation, connect with policy makers and rebuild Northeast Ohio’s cities.
This forum will highlight existing civic visions and plans for the Northeast Ohio region and the state. A moderated discussion will draw out a framework for “Building our Future” around the issues of:
