Older cities like Cleveland are now being redeveloped, and it is vital that this urban regeneration incorporate advanced ecological design. That is the premise—and the hope—of the Cleveland EcoVillage project.
The project seeks to redevelop a neighborhood around a transit stop on the near west side of Cleveland. The lead project partners are the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization and EcoCity Cleveland.
The EcoVillage is:
* An innovative partnership involving nonprofit organizations, the city, the regional transit authority, private developers, and neighborhood residents.
* A national demonstration project that will showcase green building and transit-oriented development.
* An opportunity to realize the promise of urban life in the most ecological way possible.
