Advancing the Regeneration of the Cuyahoga Valley


This report describes the Cuyahoga Regeneration Project, a community effort focused on several projects that simultaneously restore natural systems and strengthen economic development along the Cuyahoga River ship channel. The report contends that environmental restoration is no longer an option for American cities; it’s an imperative. Though many people regard efforts to rebuild environmental assets as burdensome to a local economy, environmental restoration, when pursued intelligently, is both a minimum requirement for, and a path to, a strong economic future. The Cuyahoga Regeneration Project advances these beliefs.
