Our Recent

Lake Erie is a unique asset to Cleveland, yet we aren’t always able to access it easily.

The Group Plan Commission continues to work with partners towards a pedestrian connection that will enable Clevelanders to move easily between Downtown and the lakefront.


This link will unify Downtown Cleveland, serve as the foundation for generating additional investment and result in our lakefront becoming a more sustainable and robust economic engine than it has been in the past.
