The Circle-Heights Bike Network:
EcoCity Cleveland has finished its Circle-Heights Bike map, a citizens' planning concept to connect great destinations by bicycle in University Circle and the surrounding Heights. This page explains the concept. Follow the links at right to get your copy of this very cool map and to learn more about redefining the Circle-Heights district as a bike-friendly place.
There is a special district on the east side of Cleveland. This
The "Circle-Heights" district covers a compact, four-by-four mile area. It was largely built during the streetcar era and features a fine-grain mix of residential neighborhoods and commercial districts. It has public places in which people actually like to walk around. And, unlike new suburban areas where destinations are so far apart that people have to drive everywhere, activity centers in the Heights district are spaced close together. Thus, the district is ideally laid out for alternative transportationbiking, walking, and transit.
It's time for the Circle-Heights district to take better advantage of this design attribute. With surprisingly little work, a comprehensive network of bike facilities can be created to knit the district together in a new way. This will create a real competitive advantage. The Circle-Heights district can become known as the place where families can get around in healthy ways and enjoy great streets and public spaces.
