Lakefront park expansion advances

Masterplan map for the Cleveland Harbor Eastern Embayment Resilience
Strategy (CHEERS) project, located just east of downtown Cleveland
along the city’s Lake Erie waterfront. The project will increase access
to recreation, expand sanctuaries for wildlife, protect Interstate 90 from
wave action from storms and possibly promote development of the
former First Energy Lakeshore Power Plant, west of East 72nd Street
 (Cleveland Metroparks). CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE THEM.

While there’s been lots of studies about how to improve Cleveland’s lakefront, one is actually moving forward into formal design and construction permitting — the last step before acquiring funding and construction for an expanded lakefront park just east of downtown. And although the detailed design and permitting work will continue through to the end of 2024, a big piece of funding for lakefront park expansion will be decided by voters next month.
