The New American City
Faces Its Regional Future:
A Cleveland Perspective

Edited by David C. Sweet, former dean of the Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University; Kathryn Wertheim Hexter, director of the Ohio Urban University Program at Cleveland State University; and David Beach, director of EcoCity Cleveland

Within a hundred years of its founding in 1796 at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, Cleveland became one of the great commercial and industrial centers of the nation. The city held the majority of the region's population, wealth and political clout.

By the end of Cleveland's second century, however, the city was a much smaller player in a Greater Cleveland metropolitan area. Wealthier residents, jobs, and votes had moved out to new suburbs or even to outlying counties. From a dominant urban center in which citizens of all incomes and ethnic backgrounds shared a common identity, the city had evolved into a sprawling, multi-county, metropolitan area increasingly divided by race and class.

As Cleveland enters its third century, its fate now depends on a web of interdependencies at the regional scale. The city must learn how to fit into the regional housing market and economy of Greater Cleveland. Similarly, the growing suburbs must understand their dependence on the historic central city and be drawn into the Cleveland community. And people throughout the region must adjust to new civic roles as regional citizens.

In The New American City Faces Its Regional Future, local and national experts capture the emerging debates about regionalism in Greater Cleveland. Many of the issues, such as strategies for regional land use planning or tax base sharing to reduce economic disparities, are controversial. But they are the fundamental issues that Greater Cleveland and all metropolitan areas in America will have to address in the coming decades.
