As a way to gather information, determine the needs and assets of the surrounding area, and consider the impact that a completed Bridge Project would entail for a variety of stakeholders, there are multiple collaborative efforts underway.
The consultants for the project include:
Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (http://www.cudc.kent.edu) will lead the public engagement process and focus on the urban connectivity issues related to bicycling and pedestrian access through the bridge.
Levin Ventures who will further engage the arts community to determine a “needs assessment” for a possible performance space on the bridge.
Coral Strategies, LLC (http://www.thecoralcompany.com/) will interview key stakeholders and property owners around the bridge to determine types of development that may be missing on or near the bridge.
