  1. In the light of all of the progress Cleveland has made over the recent years...is it time for us to adopt a Go Green initiative? Although it appears we are moving in the right direction with current studies being conducted on Solar and Wind Power, is it enough to offset our every growing resourceful and environmental problems. Other states such as California, Arizona, and Nevada, just to name a few have been using these renewable resources for years...however they too feel like they should be doing much more. Therefore meaning that the true solution to our current energy and global warming problems does not only come from the means by which energy is produced, but how it is being used...or wasted for the matter.

Shaker Heights goes green By HARRIET TRAMER 4:30 am, November 5, 2007 In 2003, Shaker Heights decided to take energy efficiency a step further, treating it as a community initiative rather than an individual effort. The Go Green Program aims to make home interiors as green at the natural infrastructure for which Shaker Heights has become known, according to Wesley Walker, a rehabilitation specialist with the city.

  2. East bank ripe for change, planners say Saturday, October 08, 2005 Tom Breckenridge Plain Dealer Reporter City planners say the east bank of the Flats is blighted and ready for developer Scott Wolstein's $230 million plan to build a new neighborhood from scratch. To the chagrin of several Flats property owners, the Cleveland Planning Commission found on Friday that the east bank, north of the Main Avenue Bridge, is "extensively blighted" and needs a redevelopment plan.

  4. CMHA officials will ask to extend deadline on delayed Riverview project Sunday, September 11, 2005 Angela D. Chatman Plain Dealer Reporter Local housing officials will ask for an extension on the long-delayed Riverview HOPE VI project even as they prepare to meet a Sept. 30 deadline for revised plans. The request means asking the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to agree to revised "locked" checkpoints for the project, said Scott Pollock, director of real estate and development for the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority. For instance, CMHA would ask for a deadline of June 30, 2006, for finishing project financing. The original deadline was June 30, 2003... more at: http://www.cleveland.com
  5. I think its great that the Mayor of Cleveland is showing intrest in High Speed Rail, but Realistically... how aggressively is the state of Ohio and the City of Cleveland going to persue this idea?

  7. It just does not make sense to me. Cleveland is a city that is loosing Business to other more prosperous cities and spending money to build a new convention center does not seem to solve this problem. Yet, having a proper international airport would make the city more attractive to companies that do business around the world. It would also allow convient access to international tourist who wish to visit the city... THE FIRST THING YOU SEE WHEN YOU FLY INTO A CITY IS THE AIRPORT... THE LAST THING YOU SEE WHEN YOU FLY OUT OF A CITY IS THE AIRPORT. All of the prospering big cities in the nation have already realized that, why hasen't Cleveland?
  8. I don’t think the city of Cleveland is thinking logically about the whole situation with the Convention Center. Why spend hundreds of millions of dollars if you can't even get what you planed for. All this talk about adding support columns; making the exhibit space smaller; taking away parking facilities and much more... goes against the very concept of building a new center in the first place. ITS LIKE TRYING TO PUSH A SQUARE BLOCK THROUGH A ROUND HOLE. Its just not meant to be, especially when there are other options. The city already controls the International Exposition Center a facility that is four times the size of the proposed Convention Center 800,000 sq feet. The city feels that it is more important to expand Cleveland Hopkins International Airport then keep the IX center in its present location. I do agree that Cleveland needs a much larger Airport, but tearing down the IX center to build a new runway and airport terminal will not solve any problems. There is no sense in renovating and expanding an 80-year-old airport that is completely boxed in from surrounding businesses, and homes. My suggestion is to forget about spending all this money on building a new Convention Center downtown... at least for now. Its time to look at relocating the airport in an area where there are large open plains for plenty of room for future expansion projects. The farm lands outside Lorain are an ideal location. The area is properly situated between Cleveland, Toledo, Sandusky, and the Future Cleveland Quarries Community. I know the city wants the airport to remain in Cuyahoga County, but the fact of the matter is that there is no more room left to build. Airports need room to grow just as cities do.... THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX Basically what im trying to say is that I feel an up to date airport in an Ideal location is much more valuable to the City then a remodeled Convention Center, especially when the city already has the IX center which attracts over 2 million visitors yearly... BUSINESSES LOOKING TO STAY AND RELOCATE IN THE CITY OF CLEVELAND DONT WANT A CONVENTION CENTER, THEY WANT A GATEWAY TO THE REST OF THE WORLD.
