Cleveland: Opportunity Corridor Boulevard

Recommended Posts

Eyeroll...because the only way we can imagine creating creating greenfield development opportunities is to build a road for more cars that neighborhood residents can't afford....

^ Are they really just going to call it Opportunity Corridor? I hope that is temporary. 

Cleveland seems obsessed with naming roads, buildings, parks, etc. after local politicians.  Let's hope they don't do it again with this road.  Can't we instead try to honor war heroes, industrialists, philanthropists and the like?

I proposed Garrett Morgan Parkway when it was still a concept.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it named after Harrison Dillard now.   IMO that would be completely apropos.   Certainly better than the Councilman T. J. Pocketstuffer Memorial Parkway or some such thing.

Naming after Morgan might cause a couple of inquisitive kids to wonder who he was, though, finding a new role model who wasn't a politician, entertainer, athlete, or activist.

It's not all bad news that certain property owners in the way of the OC have to move. Some would probably hold the city back if they realized their business plans.
