Neighborhood Vision 2025
MidTown and the surrounding neighborhoods underperform the City and County in very important health metrics such as rates of asthma and diabetes in the community. This Vision Plan can lay the groundwork for improving community health by stating clearly the needs of the community, drawing new partners to provide needed services and support, and by creating physical spaces and programs that enable people to take charge of their own mental and physical health, wellness, and education.
Continue work with the City of Cleveland to expand bike infrastructure in MidTown to make critical connections to nearby local and regional trails. Expand mobility-focused events and programming in MidTown.
Promote the bike trails with close connections to/through MidTown. Potentially bring a bike shop / co-op to MidTown.
Partner to improve biking and walking connections to Lake Erie - Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway, Harrison Dillard Bikeway, and Lake-to-Lakes Trail.
Host bike safety training, community bike drive, Slow Streets or other mobility-focused events to MidTown.
