Project area

The Cuyahoga County Planning Commission, with the consultancy of Parsons Brinckerhoff and SmithGroup JJR, have launched the Northfield-Warrensville Multi-Modal Connectivity Plan. The Plan is funded by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency’s Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative. The project area is one that has seen tremendous growth and development over the past several years, and has attracted some of the largest businesses and institutions in northeast Ohio. It encompasses the Villages of North Randall and Highland Hills, the City of Warrensville Heights, the Van Aken District of Shaker Heights and the Chagrin Highlands area.

The Process

Throughout the planning process, we have gained invaluable information from many area stakeholders including the cities of Beachwood and Cleveland, Cuyahoga Community College Eastern Campus, the Eaton Corporation, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, the R.E. Jacobs Group, JACK Thistledown Racino, SouthPointe Hospital, University Hospitals and the Warrensville Heights Chamber of Commerce.  Now we would like to hear from you. We encourage businesses, employees, community leaders, other philanthropic and community groups, and every resident to join the conversation.

Project Overview 

Specifically, the Plan is a continuation of the efforts initiated by the Eastside Greenway Plan, a multi-jurisdiction greenway and non-motorized mode planning study that examined existing and potential greenways in eastern Cuyahoga County to better connect residents to jobs, recreation, public and community services, retail and commercial centers and natural resources.

The objectives of the Northfield–Warrensville Multi-Modal Connectivity Plan are to build upon the strengths of existing and planned development, and to facilitate active transportation and economic investment and redevelopment.  The Plan will proactively develop recommendations and concepts for the creation of bike and pedestrian active transportation, traffic and roadway management, and public transportation enhancements to link neighborhoods to employment, health, education retail, entertainment and recreation.
