In January 2010, the City concluded a 2-year planning process to analyze transportation system issues and propose options and improvements in the City's mixed use center. The Plan includes recommendations and alternatives for encouraging transit usage, creating bicycle linkages, promoting pedestrian orientation and enhancing the streetscape through physical improvements.

The project will have a positive impact on the quality of life for residents in the City by connecting residents to resources such as employment, public transit, shopping, and parks and recreation. Not only is the project study area the most densely developed area of the City, but it also serves as one of the largest commercial centers in Cuyahoga County and in the region.  Therefore, the project's recommendations will also improve the economic viability of business in the community by improving access to business, encouraging new development, and creating a strong visual impact and gateway to the community. 

A majority of this project was grant funded through the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency's (NOACA) Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative.
