The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy in collaboration with Brian Cummins, Ward 15 Councilman and Cleveland Metroparks Zoo will present a film, “Cleveland: Confronting Decline in an American City”.  The one-hour documentary film produced by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy is the second in their “Making Sense of Place” series.  The film examines how policymakers, community groups and others have wrestled with urban decay, the erosion of inner suburbs and the growth of outer suburbs in what was once America’s fifth largest city – and what future solutions might be.  After the film, a panel and facilitator will help lead a discussion with viewers.  See www.makingsenseofplace.org for additional information and call or email the Ward 15 Council office for details at 216-459-8400, bcummins [at] clevelandcitycouncil [dot] org.

Fantastic Forum Forms

This looks like a great forum and proficient panel - I've followed the Lincoln Institute for some time and it will be good to represent with some friends and REALNEO colleagues - membership to the Zoological Society has been a relatively new experience for me but should be nice synergies here.

Perhaps some inculcation of ingenuity would be opportune - we shall see.  I also feel that this Frequently Asked Questions page (FAQ) offers a prompt prior preview of this particular 'pelicula' (spanish for screening)


Looks like I can't make it due to a CIA Ingenuity event, but hope you all enjoy this !  I caught a preview at the Museum of Natural History.

Feedback

Brian--I am sincerely glad that you have joined this forum and I look forward to hearing GOOD NEWS on how our neighborhood will be marketed to residents who want it all, because we have it ALL within walking distance!  So, give me some good news.  As fate would have it, I made the decision to attend the towpath meeting tonight at the Canal Visitors Center and apparently I messed up my info somewhere, because the building was locked.  Wish I had attended the panel discussion, although I confess the movie did not interest me at all, as it just reinforces negative urban stereotypes and I am sick of that story. Tell me some good news.  I want to know if there is a plan to redesign Lincoln West High School with a campus that includes Meyer Pool.   I want to know how the two Metrohealth campuses and the Metropark Zoo can enliven Pearl Rd.   Tell me some good news!
