Listen and learn at the Levin College

The Forum is pleased to partner with the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority, the Urban Land Institute, Cleveland, the City of Cleveland and the Downtown Cleveland Alliance to engage the public in a discussion about the unprecedented opportunity for economic transformation on Cleveland’s lakefront. Speakers will highlight successful waterfront regeneration projects that have transformed other places, share best practices and present possibilities for Cleveland. The forum’s objective is for people to come away with an understanding of the opportunity that Cleveland has before it by redeveloping 100 acres of prime lakefront land currently occupied by the Port.

Become part of the process of shaping how our community can leverage precious assets and mold an exciting new future for the City of Cleveland and surrounding areas.
