How Can Northeast Ohio Grow Smarter?

The 'biggest regional planning effort in a generation' is providing residents of twelve Northeast Ohio counties with an opportunity to discuss how the area can leverage its existing infrastructure rather than continuing to sprawl.

"Northeast Ohio faces a grim future if it continues sprawling as usual," writes Steven Litt. "But it has options that could dramatically improve its economy, social equity, and environment if it channels development back toward cities that are hollowing out today."

"That’s the basic thrust of a quartet of development scenarios being offered by the Northeast Ohio Sustainable Communities Consortium as choices for public debate over the next two weeks in the latest phase of the biggest regional planning effort in a generation."

"Funded by a $4.25 million grant from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, plus $2.4 million in local matching funds, the sustainability group is in the final six months of a three-year effort to help Northeast Ohio fashion a rational vision for the future rather than blindly continue current trends."
