Cleveland has lost over 50% of its population since 1950.
The City has over 20,000 vacant lots, many of these can be preserved as hydrological resources.
Red Fields to Green Fields will:
- Remove an estimated 1,850 acres of non-performing real estate from the market
- Create over 120 miles of interconnected greenways.
- Restore a natural stressed hydrologic system to a more natural flow pattern.
- Transform Cleveland’s neighborhoods and waterfront, to attract a new generation of young professionals.
