Eastside Greenway Plans to Connect 19 Greater Cleveland Communities with Bike and Pedestrian Paths
Imagine living close to a trail system that connects neighborhoods throughout the eastern portion of Cuyahoga County with employment centers, transit, services, parks and green spaces. Imagine walking or biking to school, work, the store, or a park. Imagine being able to bike from the Euclid Creek Reservation to the Shaker Median Trail, or from Rockefeller Park to the North Chagrin Reservation. Imagine the Eastside Greenway.
The Eastside Greenway will increase pedestrian and bicycle connectivity in and between the eastern portion of Cleveland and 18 suburbs: East Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights, University Heights, Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Richmond Heights, Highland Heights, Highland Hills, North Randall, Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, Euclid, South Euclid, Lyndhurst, Bratenahl, Orange Village and Warrensville Heights. Leaders from these cities are working alongside planners and other regional organizations, like the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission, LAND studio, the Cleveland Metroparks, Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District and Bike Cleveland, to develop a plan for the greenway that can be used to guide the way to implementation.
The project team will be hosting a third round of public meetings, in which the final greenway plan, shaped by input from the first two public meetings, will be presented and you are invited. The same content will be presented at each meeting, so choose the date and location that works best for your schedule. The meeting dates are as follows:
Tuesday, May 12, 2015 6:30-8:30 p.m. Warrensville Heights Public Library
Wednesday, May 13, 2015 6:30-8:30 p.m. Sterle’s Country House
Tuesday, May 19, 2015 6:00-7:30 p.m. Collinwood Recreation Center
Wednesday, May 20, 2015 6:30-8:30 p.m. Bottlehouse Brewery
