Community partners, residents, and the City of Cleveland are working to improve the E. 66th Street Corridor through a Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative with the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency

E. 66th Street is a significant street in the Hough neighborhood. From League Park to the Fatima Family Center, Chateau Hough to the many historic churches along E. 66th Street, institutions and businesses in this corridor have served the community for years. With its roots as an old trolley line, it makes sense that E. 66th Street is an important transportation corridor.

Exciting new things are happening on E. 66th Street. The Cleveland Foundation is moving its headquarters from downtown to E. 66th Street and Euclid Avenue, the Hough branch of the Cleveland Public Library will move to Lexington and E. 66th Street, and various organizations and residents are continuing to move into the neighborhood. The community is growing and we want to hear visions for these improvements from you!

In partnership with the voices, residents, and community members of E. 66th Street, MidTown Cleveland, Land Studio and ThirdSpace Action Lab are continuing the conversation about developing a plan for the development of a Cultural District in the multi-faceted community of Hough.

We want to provide spaces for all people to be heard and to have real conversations about development that will greatly impact our communities. We are hosting a virtual “Kitchen Table Conversation”  via Zoom on May 18th where we will discuss ideas of establishing a Black Avenue and provide updates on existing development projects. We invite youth, elders, residents, stakeholders, mothers, fathers and others to talk about your dreams for the Black Avenue Cultural District, along with your ideas and concepts. We welcome you Tuesday, May 18th from 6:00-7:30 PM via Zoom. Hope to see you there!
