Thanks for your continued interest in NEOSCC and the Vibrant NEO 2040 Initiative. As we near the end of 2012, there is plenty Vibrant NEO 2040 activity around Northeast Ohio. We are in process of finalizing the selection of a planning firm to assist with development of the Vibrant NEO 2040 vision and framework. A few facts about the planning process:
Who will be involved in the planning process? We will be engaging stakeholders throughout the region through different ways and methods.
How will the planning process be conducted? We will be conducting regional engagement using a scenario planning process that creates a shared vision.
What is our objective? We are focused on developing a framework to create a more vibrant, resilient and sustainable Northeast Ohio.
NEOSCC has also launched its regional analysis of impediments to fair housing choice study.
