Cuyahoga River Bulkhead Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) Report Presentation and Panel Discussion

ULI Cleveland Event

Merwin's Warf, Cleveland

Register

The deteriorating condition of many of the bulkheads along the Cuyahoga River has been an impediment to development in the Cuyahoga Valley for the City of Cleveland, Port of Cleveland, Flats Forward, the Cleveland Metroparks, and private landowners. In an effort to better understand and overcome barriers to developing and utilizing the riverfront and Cuyahoga Valley, the Vision for the Valley partnership engaged the Cleveland District Council of the Urban Land Institute to convene a ten-member multidisciplinary Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) to recommend best practices for financing, rebuilding and maintaining bulkhead infrastructure along one of Cleveland’s two major waterfront, the Cuyahoga River. ULI Cleveland is excited to present its TAP report in partnership with the City of Cleveland, the Cleveland City Planning Commission, Cleveland Metroparks, Port of Cleveland, and Flats Forward at a this special forum on August 11.

A Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs) are intensive, on-site engagements conducted by career professionals who serve as volunteer panelists. The panelists deliver expert, multi-disciplinary advice to local governments, public agencies and nonprofit organizations facing complex land use and real estate issues. Drawing from our extensive membership base, these panels provide objective, pragmatic solutions, best practice advice and market-based strategies from senior practitioners from a variety of real estate and land use disciplines.

During this event, see TAP panelists and individuals from our partner organizations present the report and host a panel conversation. Breakfast items will be provided.
