In 2004, the City of Cleveland underwent an extensive study of the current and potential use of our land along Lake Erie. As part of that process, Northeast Shores engaged the Kent State Urban Design Center to develop a landuse plan that improves amenities at Euclid Beach State Park and improves the aesthetics in the immediately adjacent retail business district. The Cleveland Planning Commission adopted the plan and Northeast Shores is in the process of implementing these important improvements.

The Plan identifies specific projects that will enhance Euclid Creek and bring the Creek back into the community as an amenity.  The project was funded in part by ODNR’s Coastal Management Grant Program.
