One sign that Clevehoga is frozen - all year long - is the vacant Coast Guard Station. 

A spectacular location, a spectacular building.  

But no ideas for re-use, and no effort to stabilize the deterioration.

If I were Mayor Jackson, I would obtain funding (historic, green, stimulus, you name the funds) to renovate the Station as the Mayor's residence.  Ed's work isn't done until this building is active.

Your ideas?

As of last Friday, Ohio officials had received nearly 7,500 proposals for federal stimulus funds, adding up to about $28 million in requests. The state expects to receive about $8 billion. By yesterday, the number of requests had topped 10,000. GreenCityBlueLake has suggestions for greening the stimulus investments. The list (XLS, 8.3 MB) is available at the state's stimulus website (http://recovery.ohio.gov/) , and Cleveland.com also posted the database.
