OLIN and City of Cleveland seek Public Input

Cleveland kicks off Citywide Parks & Recreation Master Plan process

5.2.23

OLIN selected as prime consultant, community needs assessment to begin this spring 

 

Tuesday, May 2, 2023 — Cleveland — The City of Cleveland, through the Mayor’s Office of Capital Projects (MOCAP), has selected landscape architecture firm OLIN as the prime consultant on the development of a Citywide Parks & Recreation Master Plan. The first of its kind in Cleveland's history, the planning process will look at the city’s Neighborhood Resource and Recreation Centers (NRRCs), parks, pools, playgrounds and similar spaces across the city as well as the quantity and the quality of programs provided. 

 

Led by MOCAP, the 15-year master plan will create a roadmap that ensures just and fair capital investment in parks and recreation, provides equitable connections to quality parks and rec activities, and meets the needs of city residents, community groups, and other stakeholders.    

 

“This is an incredible opportunity to revitalize public spaces in every neighborhood across our city,” said Mayor Justin M. Bibb. “This plan is all about access and equity, removing barriers, building community, and creating places and experiences that enrich peoples’ lives.”    

 

The selected partner for this project, OLIN, is a nationally and internationally recognized studio with more than 40 years of experience in parks and recreation system planning and designing for the public realm. 

 

OLIN projects include a 25-year master plan to transform the post-industrial land along Philadelphia’s Delaware River, the campus and gardens at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, the award-winning 11th Street Bridge Park in Washington, D.C., and the parks master plan for Oklahoma City.  

 

OLIN is also the team behind the Eastman Reading Garden at the Cleveland Public Library and the plaza and greenspace surrounding the Anthony J. Celebrezze Federal Building.  

 

The planning process officially kicks off this Friday, May 5. The three-phase planning process is expected to take 18 months to complete.  

 

The plan will be created in three distinct phases. The first involves a robust and inclusive community needs assessment that will identify the current and future parks and recreation needs of Clevelanders, community groups, and stakeholders over the next 15 years. The second phase is the creation of a long-range plan that will reconcile existing conditions with the community needs assessment. The third phase entails a strategic plan that will outline the best methods to finance and implement the long-range plan to make it a reality.  

 

“We look forward to engaging with residents and the community as we embark on this planning process,” said MOCAP Director James D. DeRosa. “My team is excited to get started and we expect for public engagement opportunities and other ways to get involved with the master plan to be announced this summer.”  

 

The City of Cleveland currently operates 179 unique parks and recreation sites, including 155 city parks, 23 recreation centers, and 1 golf course that total nearly 1,760 acres. These sites include 111 baseball fields, 108 playgrounds, 88 basketball courts, 70 tennis courts, 40 indoor or outdoor swimming pools, and hundreds of other public amenities and programs.   

 

More about OLIN and the studio’s work can be found at parks.theolinstudio.com.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The open houses are taking place on the following days: 

  • Thursday, July 27 at Zelma Watson George Recreation Center, 12-2 p.m. 
  • Thursday, July 27 at Thurgood Marshall Recreation Center, 6-8 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 29 at South Branch Public Library, 10 a.m. -12 p.m.

"This plan will provide a playbook for the City to follow over the coming decade," said OLIN CEO Lucinda Sanders. "For that playbook to be responsive to the needs of Clevelanders, we are hosting these open houses as one way to hear directly from residents what they would like parks and recreation in the City to look like in the future."   

OLIN, a Philadelphia-based landscape architecture firm is holding open houses as well as local community partners ThirdSpace Action Lab, Neighborhood Connections, designExplorr, OHM Advisors and others. 

A pop-up engagement will also be held in Public Square on Friday, Jul 28, at noon. 

"This is an incredible opportunity to revitalize public spaces in every neighborhood across our city," said Mayor Justin M. Bibb. "This plan is all about access and equity, removing barriers, building community, and creating places and experiences that enrich peoples' lives."

Park process is really just an excuse to hand off CLE assets

The whole sham of public process will result in a hand off of City of Cleveland real estate - See Orr Park precedent.  

Turning our parks into privately owned prisons

Big fences, digital ids required to enter, no parking. What happens when the federal fun funds run out. All these "projects" paid for with Monopoly money. 

CSU recommends daylighing Dugway Brook

Cleveland Resilience Projects Could Boost Communities’ Access to Water and Green Spaces

Planners stress the need for ongoing community input from underserved communities as proposals evolve to reduce flooding from extreme weather.

 

Full Story:

Our Vision 

Daylighting Dugway Brook will be a catalyst for renewed ecological health and neighborhood development. Improving stream health and enriching the Lake Erie coastal zone will be balanced with providing social and economic benefits to the surrounding communities. This will be accomplished while acknowledging the effects of growth and preventing negative consequences while making development decisions.‚Äč

Planning for the daylighting project will incorporate working with local residents and stakeholders to develop ways of improving environmental and social connections within the Glenville neighborhood and the Village of Bratenahl.
