"At the end of the day you all own that public land on the lakefront and you should be able to access it." – Kerry McCormack

Last year, plans were announced for a complete reimaging of the Cuyahoga Riverfront. Led by the real estate firm Bedrock and the city of Cleveland, the decade-spanning plan will redevelop 35 acres. Highlights of the plan include connecting downtown to the river through Tower City Center, adding more mixed-use properties, and creating accessible outdoor spaces. Go north, and a comprehensive community-engagement project is examining the potential of Cleveland's lakefront.

As downtown continues to grow, ensuring residents and visitors feel connected to the area–whether they’re watching the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium or taking in a Broadway show on Playhouse Square–is essential. Join us in Public Square as we hear how reliable public transit, bike and pedestrian lanes, public green spaces, and basic amenities can come together to create an integrated neighborhood that is inclusive and welcoming to all.

Let us know if you're coming! Please RSVP by registering below. It's not required, but it helps us prepare and keeps you updated!
