  • Introduction:
    As some of you may be know, staff of the city planning commission have been working hard, but quietly in an effort to update the cities comprehensive plan.
    Civic Vision 2000 was the general blue print to guide neighborhood development throughout the 1990’s. Over the past decade however much has changed and a new set of challenges have presented themselves along with a host of opportunities.
    Technology has become a more integral part of our lives
    Communities in Cleveland and local agencies have taken a greater role in the development of there communities
    Changes in thinking and desires of residents regarding development in Cleveland has occurred over the past decades
    Employment conditions and social conditions are also transitioning.
    Taking these factors into account Planning staff was charged with the duty of creating a plan that does 4 key things:
    Identify issues at various levels of neighborhood development
    Set goals and recommends policies
    Integrates the communities desires for their neighborhood through the creation of neighborhood plans that act as the foundation for directing the city and the planning commission on how to utilize its limited Land Resources ( a comprehensive Land Use Plan)
    Identify future development opportunities to create growth for our city
