In The Region:

A group is using an interactive website to collect data on Northeast Ohioans’ vision of the region’s future.

Jeff Anderle of the Northeast Ohio Sustainable Communities Consortium says ImagineMyNEO will help collect data through the summer from residents who prefer online communication to public meetings.

"It’s a way for Northeast Ohio residents to tell us what their priorities and values are and also kind of walk through the steps of being a planner," Anderle says. "They get to invest (figuratively) tax dollars in different things as well as give recommendations on certain policies, all the while kind of educating them about of the different trade-offs and impacts that different choices make."

The group also collected data in a similar exercise during six open houses in April and May.

The final data will be presented in September. Anderle says this will help create a plan for the transportation and land use for the region. 

He says the group is also working on analyzing fair housing in the region. The 2,300 page draft is available online and in person for comments. They will also have presentation at meetings and online to summarize the draft starting June 18th.
