City seeks $15.7 million East 66th corridor boost

Looking south on East 66th Street from Hough Avenue in July 2022, this
important north-south street is more peaceful now than it has been in 150
years. That was before the neighborhood became densely populated with
the city’s economic growth and became over-populated as a result of the
Great Depression, the Great Migration, block-busting and red-lining in
the postwar years that sent Hough into a downward spiral. Now, new
investments are turning this neighborhood into a more attractive
place again (Google). CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE THEM

In 2012, backers of and participants in a study of improving the East 66th Street corridor in Cleveland’s Hough and MidTown neighborhoods probably couldn’t imagine how much development would be happening over the next decade along this long-neglected corridor. Many of those same stakeholders are now seeking a major investment in this north-south street to support its further development over the coming decade.
