In The Region:

The new vision for Cleveland’s downtown lakefront will start with more pedestrian and boat access. And over the the next quarter century, backers expect it to blossom into a major Northeast Ohio attraction.  After years of debate and several different proposals, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson says the city now has a comprehensive plan.  WKSU’s Kevin Niedermier reports that today he unveiled details of the three-pronged approach.

Listener Comments:

I wish them luck...I hope it works...Given their history up there - and on this issue, I'll believe it when I see it.

I believe the region is anchored to - and anchored by Cleveland. That said, it can't be ALL about treating sick people or Educational Institutions who seek national prominence (Same could be said about Akron). These are not bad things, but how sustainable is an economy/society where if you are not in school or sick you're out of luck? So I hope Cleveland can finally get out of it's own way and do something meaningful with it's most important asset - Lake Erie.
