The City of Brecksville was awarded master plan funding through a competitive grant process from the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission. County Planning will facilitate the planning process by bringing together data, community leaders, citizens, and public institutions to craft a plan for action.
This is the community’s Plan and as such, public input will be collected throughout the planning process, including three public meetings. Additionally, the Steering Committee comprised of Brecksville residents, business owners, stakeholders, and community leaders will meet to develop and refine the content of the Plan.

Goals and Actions: The Goals and Actions phase will outline the steps necessary to achieve the community’s desired future.
Implementation: The Implementation phase builds on the goals and actions steps from the previous phase to outline strategies, partners, responsibilities, and priorities for undertaking actions.
