It was in 1903 when Cleveland's first urban plans called for access to the Lake Erie shoreline. Then in 1946, the city released its first comprehensive lakefront plan. And in 2004, the Waterfront District plan was the first to recommend a pedestrian connection. Several studies have been completed over the decades, and while some aspects of these plans have been implemented, access from Downtown Cleveland to its lakefront remains constrained.
Recently, Cleveland's North Coast, the City, and its partners announced a draft of Cleveland’s North Coast Master Plan. It aims to end what seems like an elusive solution to lakefront development--creating a blueprint for a vibrant and equitable recreational hub for all to enjoy, connecting people with nature, and the city to its waterfront. But what makes this one different from all the rest?
Join us at the Happy Dog in Gordon Square as we learn more about Cleveland's North Coast Master Plan, community involvement in its drafting, and what is next to realize a lakefront accessible to all.
