Ohio City Streets Committee
forms to improve pedestrian safety

The Ohio City Streets Committee (OCSC) is based on the idea that streets are important public spaces for residents and travelers alike. The goal is to improve this part of the public realm in order to create a more livable neighborhood.

The OCSC will work on issues related to streets/traffic/pedestrian access. The focus will be to create support for local "street reclaiming" projects throughout Ohio City, to assist forwarding a plan and vision for better traffic alternatives as related to the Innerbelt reconstruction project and for mediating its effects while the freeways are closed.

Recent projects and goals

1. Visit block clubs and neighborhood groups, collected "hot spots" and concerns.

2. Develop a list of neighborhood hot spots and map them.

3. Establish relationships with the East-West Neighborhood Traffic Coalition, EcoCity Cleveland, Cleveland Innerbelt Study Scoping Committee, City Planning.

4. Create a basic blueprint highlighting hot spots and street types throughout Ohio City and offering a selection of viable alternatives.

5. Plan a neighborhood-wide event with Dan Burden, March 5th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

6. Influence existing projectsencourage neighborhoods with pedestrian over-lay residential areas.

7. Develop on the ground street calming projects.

8. Pursue funding and assistance for a traffic study in Ohio City.
