The Cleveland EcoVillage
The project seeks to redevelop a neighborhood around a transit stop on the near west side of Cleveland. The lead project partners are the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization and EcoCity Cleveland.
The Cleveland EcoVillage is a great place to live. It is a diverse neighborhood that is pedestrian-friendly and community-oriented. Residents are within walking distance of the Rapid Transit Station and the Zone Recreation Center. The area has older and newer homes, including some of the city's finest examples of green building. The area also includes numerous schools, historic churches, and communtiy gardens. Residents can participate in block clubs, recreation groups, annual workshops, and celebrations. There are countless opportunities in the Cleveland EcoVillage.

The search for a new vision for cities has even more urgency now. In 1900, only 160 million people, one tenth of the world's population, were city dwellers. By shortly after 2000, in contrast, half of the world (3.2 billion people) will live in urban areas-a 20-fold increase in numbers. The challenge for the next century will be to improve the environmental conditions of cities themselves while reducing the demands that they make on the Earth's finite resources.
