On December 17, 2004, The Cleveland City Planning Commission adopted “Connecting Cleveland: The Waterfront District Plan,” a comprehensive planning effort that was begun in April 2002 by Mayor Jane L. Campbell and the Cleveland Lakefront Partners to develop a community consensus for the future of eight miles of Lake Erie shoreline between Edgewater Park and Gordon Park. This milestone effort, representing the culmination of a thirty-two month planning process, evolved from an infrastructure reclamation study, which scrutinized the possibility of taking back what the Cleveland Memorial Shoreway had blocked from the Lakefront neighborhoods – connectivity. This study proposed the decommissioning of a high speed roadway and replacing it with a pedestrian-scaled boulevard that once again would engage the neighborhoods to Lake Erie.
