Rendering of neighborhood improvementsMaple Heights 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.

The Master Plan is the community’s plan. As such, public input will be collected throughout the planning process, including at three scheduled public meetings. Additionally, the Steering Committee comprised of Maple Heights residents, business owners, stakeholders, and community leaders, will meet to develop and refine the content of the Plan.
