The Brecksville Master Plan focused on strengthening recreational access, connecting neighborhoods, and expanding business opportunities to maintain a strong and stable community.
The City of Brecksville’s Master Plan is a long-term guide for the future and is meant to direct the City for the next ten years.
Brecksville Master Plan
The City of Brecksville was awarded master plan funding through a competitive grant process from the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission. County Planning facilitated 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 was collected throughout the planning process, including at public meetings. Additionally, the Steering Committee comprised of Brecksville residents, business owners, stakeholders, and community leaders met to develop and refine the content of the Plan.
The City of Brecksville’s Master Plan consisted of a six-phase process:
Community Survey: The Community Survey phase involved a paper survey sent to a random sample of households that provides insight into residents’ issues and opinions.
Current Conditions: The Current Conditions phase involved collecting data on demographics, land use, and transportation and was used as a baseline for understanding the community.
Community Vision: In the Community Vision phase, County Planning facilitated the articulation of a vision for how Brecksville wants to grow and change in the next decade based on input from residents, business, and community leaders.
Goals and Actions: The Goals and Actions phase outlined the steps necessary to achieve the community’s desired future.
Implementation: The Implementation phase built on the goals and actions steps from the previous phase to outline strategies, partners, responsibilities, and priorities for undertaking actions.
Master Plan document: In the final phase, County Planning combined all the previous phases into a completed Master Plan document.
