Make vacant land, green space and brownfields productive
"Areas of declining population loss create opportunities for a rebirth of neighborhoods by opening green space for recreation and community functions. Smart, coordinated, land use policy will be critical to our success. ... The County Planning Commission will be directed to coordinate with our communities and representative organizations, including First Suburbs and Northeast Ohio Mayors’ and Managers’ Association, to advance land-use planning policies to recognize current population trends, and use sustainability principles to grow our neighborhoods for long term health, prosperity and quality of life."
