A neighborhood’s fate lies at the hands of its residents. An engaged citizenry can draw investment dollars, create a stable tax base, attract new residents and amenities, and limit the spread of crime. And yet, stimulating residents into action is a challenge for many neighborhoods. Join the City Club for its weekly installment of its free and public “For the Love of Cleveland” summer series. This week, learn about the significant impact of citizen engagement in the Lee-Harvard and Detroit-Shoreway neighborhoods. How did the residents of these two neighborhoods make such an impact? What can emerging neighborhoods learn from their success and the challenges they encountered along the way?



Panelists include:

Terrell H. Pruitt, Councilman, Ward 1, City of Cleveland

Jenny Spencer, MPP, EDFP, Managing Director, Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization


This conversation will be moderated by ideastream® senior host/producer Rick Jackson.
