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?
