City of Fairview Park releases Next Steps Memorandum for Lorain Road redevelopment

This article was first published in the City of Fairview Park’s September 2017 electronic newsletter.

This past spring the City of Fairview Park was awarded a Planning for Infill Development Building Blocks Technical Assistance Grant from the U.S. EPA Office of Sustainable Communities. Through the grant, the City was able to receive assistance from the U.S. EPA and their professional planning consultant, Renaissance Planning, to examine Lorain Road. The result of that technical assistance, which included two days of public workshops, is a Next Steps Memorandum, finalized in July 2017.

This Memorandum documents the key outcomes of the technical assistance for the City with the Planning for Infill Development tool developed by the U.S. EPA, and identifies key community issues, prioritized strategies, and specific actions to create a downtown through infill redevelopment along the Lorain Road Corridor.
