NEW Gateway District Signature Street Furniture Unveiled!

The Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation (HGNC) is excited to unveil new Gateway District signature street furniture through the installation of its first two Sidewalk Parks.  A Sidewalk Park is a collection of street furniture installed on the sidewalk to create a public gathering space. 
 
Specially designed for the Gateway District, the street furniture was designed by local artist Tom Hubbard and draws inspiration from the District’s turn of the century arcades and the decorative metal work found throughout the neighborhood.  With names like Arcade, Taylor, Brace, Teller and Balustrade these updated designs, while rooted in history, bring playfulness and functionality to the streets.   
 
This pilot project was made possible with $40,000 seed funding from Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation and  additional support from Cumberland Development,LLCResidence Inn Downtown Cleveland, Geis Companies and Heinen’s.

Prospect Avenue Construction to Begin July 6th

Prospect Avenue is getting a much needed resurfacing!  The Ohio Department of Transportation in partnership with the City of Cleveland will begin on Monday July 6th, a project to resurface Prospect Avenue between Ontario Street and East 22nd Street.  The $1.6 million project will install new pavement, curbs, ramps and pavement markings.  Upon completion of the project in the fall of 2015 the roadway will be more accommodating for cyclists and include bike lanes or “sharrows” along the route.  The project is expected to begin in July and crews will work weekdays, during daytime hours.  There will be NO PARKING on Prospect for the duration of the project.

Recently, the Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation coordinated a meeting for ODOT to share project details with stakeholders.  If you weren’t able to attend, click to see the  ODOT Presentation.  Also provided was a Taking Care of your Business handout with suggested soundbites and tips on staying patient and positive during construction.
