You are invited to attend a presentation and discussion of important progress in the Cuyahoga Valley Initiative (CVI). It will conclude Rocky Mountain Institute's (RMI) work on CVI and describe the next steps to success as CVI begins to run on its own legs.

CVI is a large-scale vision to restore the economy, river, culture, and community of the Cuyahoga Valley, especially in the area of the ship channel. In April 2004, with the guidance of local leaders, RMI developed a strategy and set of actions that would help attain this envisioned revitalization. For the past year and a half, RMI pursued the second phase of its work: implementation of some of the recommendations from Phase I.

On Thursday, June 1, RMI and representatives from various agencies and organizations in the community will present their progress on various projects relating to water quality (storm water and river restoration), green industrial buildings, and economic development that turns waste into revenue. For certain projects, memoranda of understanding promising future action will be signed at this event. We invite you to hear about exciting new ideas and propositions, engage the presenters in discussion, and serve as public witnesses and future collaborators in these efforts.
