"The best cheerleaders are the newcomers to Cleveland." – Mark Joseph

Our region’s core city is making important investments that are expected to have significant returns for all citizens. This goes far beyond visible improvements such as Public Square, though public space improvements have been shown to vastly improve quality of life for cities. Cleveland Foundation and the City Club are preparing to lead a week of dialogue this summer at the Chautauqua Institution on The Future of Cities. As part of this, we invite you to join us for a special conversation in which we seek answers to this question: What do we want the future of Cleveland to be?

Panelists include:

Evelyn Burnett, Vice President, Economic Opportunity, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress

Mark Joseph, Associate Professor, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University; Director, National Initiative on Mixed-Income Communities; and Faculty Associate, Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development

India Pierce Lee, Program Director for Neighborhoods, Housing and Community Development, Cleveland Foundation

Richey Piiparinen, Senior Research Associate, Center for Population Dynamics, Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University

This discussion will be moderated by Chautauqua Institution President Thomas M. Becker.
