A Platform for Discussion
In June, the NEOSCC published its first report, the Conditions and Trends platform. The platform is the result of over 150 experts in the region coming together to look at Northeast Ohio and how our land use effects economic development, the environment, housing and communities and transportation. The resulting report was transformed into what we call a platform or launching place for engagement. By creating an on-line tool, we ensured that the platform can evolve as we engage the region in a discussion about existing conditions and trends. It also creates the opportunity to add more data, maps and graphics as we become aware of these resources.
We developed the Conditions and Trends Platform with four distinct ways for everyone in Northeast Ohio to learn about the findings:
Themes – five themes were developed based on the relationship between the findings;
Subject Matter (i.e. Economic Development, Environment, etc.);
Maps/Geographies – the site includes a Northeast Ohio Atlas of maps developed for the Platform; and
Search – the entire site is searchable by key words, location, and subject matter.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to explore the Platform, we encourage you to visit and share your thoughts with us!
If you are interested in helping to get the word out about the Platform, visit our Communications Toolkit for email, mailing, social media and graphics resources!
