urban tree farm

Got this email from Julia Barton at OSU Extension. Just what I have been hoping for!
Hort and Ag Educators in Northeast Ohio,
Burten, Bell, Carr ,a local community development corporation in Cleveland, has issued a Request for Qualifications for an arborist or horticulturalist to submit a feasibility study, business plan, and design for an urban tree farm on Cleveland's east side. Some of you may remember an article over the summer in the Plain Dealer about the Kinsman neighborhood which has lost a considerable percentage of it's population over the years. Burten, Bell, Carr has plans to consolidate 20 acres in one part of the neighborhood to start an urban tree farm as a sustainable, economic development project. See attached parcel map.
I have attached their official Request for Qualifications that contains more details about the project.
I'd love to see this in Cleveland: Endless Orchard. How about in this neighborhood?
