RE-IMAGINING A [GREATER] CLEVELAND ACTION PLAN
Abstract: In 2010, the Re-imagining effort was expanded beyond city limits to include inner-ring suburbs in Cuyahoga County where foreclosures, demolitions, and vacant land are a growing problem. The new initiative, Re-imagining a [Greater] Cleveland delineates the most suitable locations for specific vacant land reuse strategies. This report includes maps of areas in the city and county where vacant land can be used most effectively for green space expansion, agriculture, stormwater management, the restoration of urban watersheds, and the generation of renewable energy. At the city-wide scale, the Cleveland City Planning Commission convened eight vacant land working groups and developed a series of overlay maps to identify priority areas for sustainable redevelopment, as well as locations where vacant land stabilization is a top priority.
