OPPORTUNITY CORRIDOR USEPA BROWNFIELD PLAN

The Opportunity Corridor Area-Wide Brownfields Planning Program was the first of its kind in Ohio. City Architecture co-authored the USEPA federal grant application with the City of Cleveland. One of only 23 pilot plans awarded in the county, the Opportunity Corridor plan aimed to define the true "opportunity" that should result from the planned $330M infrastructure investment. Guided by community development groups, social advocacy agencies, the Ohio Department of Transportation and City officials, the planning process focused on maximizing job creation through strategic economic development. Inclusive outreach efforts led to a community supported plan that re-imagines approximately 450 acres of vacant and blighted land. Every parcel was inventoried, analyzed and classified into determined environmental categories. Development yields and potential clean-up resources are all assembled and synthesized to provide a prioritized implementation strategy that can be used to attract investment along the new 3 mile road. The resulting data has been integrated into the City's GIS system, providing integrated planning information for future initiatives. Since the completion of the brownfield pilot program, City Architecture was hired to expand the planning footprint to include the entire corridor's impact area.
