Public preferences for
future development at Dike 14

Benches, bike paths, bird sanctuary top the list of future considerations

The following information was compiled by Barbara A. Martin for the Dike 14 Committee, a citizens' group, on October 14, 2002.

The public had its final opportunity to submit ideas for consideration by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources' Working Review Committee on September 17 at the "Goals for Dike 14" meeting.

Since September 17, the Working Review Committee (WRC) held two "work sessions" at the Bratenahl Community Center (Sept. 24 and Oct. 8) to evaluate the 99 different suggestions/preferences for Dike 14 that were submitted during the ODNR 8-month Project.

At the September 24 work session, the WRC divided into three evaluating teams. Each team discussed each of the 99 suggestions and assigned each suggestion to one of three categories: 1) Should be "retained" for consideration at Dike 14; 2) Should be "referred" to Gordon State Park
or elsewhere on the Cleveland lakefront (between the shoreline and the railroad tracks); or 3) Should be "removed" from further consideration.

At the October 8 work session, the WRC reviewed and clarified its categorizing of the 99 items.

A very high level of agreement was reached by the WRC for "retaining" multiple and compatible suggestions at Dike 14. High levels of agreement were also reached by the WRC in the other categories of "referring" and "removing."

The following are the Working Review Committee results that will be available for review:

A. All three teams agree "to retain" 28 suggestions for Dike 14:

1. All-season use
2. Benches, quiet seating areas
3. Bike paths* (Conditional)
4. Bird sanctuary
5. Cross-discipline projects (e.g. biology & art)

* Conditional consensus: Identified need for further discussion on nature trails and bikes and roller blades.

B. All three teams agree to "refer" 19 suggestions to either Gordon State Park or elsewhere on the lakefront. The concept of "referring" a suggestion is not in anyway a criticism, but rather an indication that for a variety of reasons these suggestions would be better suited to other areas.

1. African American Cultural Garden
2. Arboretum
3. Community Center
4. Dirt bike track
5. Greenhouse
6. Indoor rain forest
7. Nudist/naturist park

Back to main Dike 14

Vegetation has grown over the dredgings in Dike 14, making the disposal facility a prime habitat for birds. Ecological restoration could make the site an even better spot for bird watching and passive recreation.
