For the Love of Cleveland Summer Series: Reinvestment and Opportunity

June 20, 2017 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Cleveland Public Square
3 Public Square
Cleveland, OH 44115

Join the City Club of Cleveland for its free summer series, For the Love of Cleveland. In this installment, “Reinvestment and Opportunity”, City Club CEO Dan Moulthrop will moderate a panel discussion of the “Cleveland Renaissance” and its potential to benefit residents and neighborhoods in poverty. Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s $65 million project is aimed at commercial and residential development to spark further outside investment, create jobs and improve quality of life. What can we do to ensure projects like this succeed and benefit those in poverty? How are our anchor institutions reaching out and supporting the surrounding neighborhoods? As Cleveland continues its renaissance, how can we avoid creating a city characterized by alternating pockets of growth, physically separating those with wealth and those in poverty?

Panelists include:

Juan Molina Crespo, Executive Director, Hispanic Alliance, Inc.

Blaine A. Griffin, Councilman, Ward 6, City of Cleveland

Denise Van Leer, Executive Director, Fairfax Renaissance Development Corporation

For the Love of Cleveland is a free weekly event taking place every Tuesday this summer in public square.
