Cleveland Metroparks and partners (Black Environmental Leaders, ODNR, ODOT, City of Cleveland, and Port of Cleveland) have kicked-off the planning process for CHEERS (the Cleveland Harbor Eastern Embayment Resilience Strategy)!
We are creating a community-focused resiliency plan for the eastern Cleveland lakeshore that will Embrace the Lake as an asset for future generations. The project will focus on leveraging nature-based solutions to improve the environment, reconnect communities to the lake, enhance public health and wellness, bolster the economy, and improve aquatic and terrestrial habitats. Currently, the initial plan has been released and we there will be a few community gatherings that will go over this plan.
Check back with this page in early 2023 for more opportunities to get involved.
