A ClevelandBikes’ bike station for Northeast Ohio?

Submitted by Kevin Cronin on Mon, 01/16/2006 - 11:15.

People on REALNEO’s website are used to thinking about new ideas and the way we can help create the city and region we want to live in. Rather than passive acceptance, readers at REALNEO are active shapers of the community.  Our area is increasingly considering the importance of health activities, lifestyle and the comfort and attractiveness of the region.  As a region, we are focusing on regional assets, including our parks and lake.  With that in mind, I want to discuss ClevelandBikes, a two year-old nonprofit, and our project to develop an asset to meet these goals…a bike station, a new piece of the transportation infrastructure.

VIDEO: Cleveland doesn't have vision - people feel stuck - locals don't believe in Cleveland

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Thu, 11/10/2005 - 16:18.

This "Storm the Palace" discussion at the "Arts and Culture" world cafe explores "Believe in Cleveland" from the perspectives of two transplants here, making observations many people choose to be here and like and believe in Cleveland - the non-believers seem to be people from here who feel "stuck" - "who never left".

Our Great Lakes - Be Part of It

The historic Cleveland Harbor Coast Guard Station on Lake Erie

The people of Northeast Ohio are
fortunate to have one of the world's greatest bodies of freshwater at
our doorstep. Cleveland, being the largest metropolis on Lake Erie,
needs to leverage this great asset and realize its potential to make
Northeast Ohio a world contender. The citizens, organizations, and
public officials have begun the collaboration needed to make it
happen. The only way we can keep the momentum going to restore our
Great Lakes is to get involved and “be part of it.”
