We are proud to share that Dion Harris of the Cleveland/Akron POD Design office was part of the team awarded a National American Planning Association and American Institute of Planners student project award for their “Contribution of Planning to Contemporary Issues.”  The comprehensive planning project for the Final Graduate Planning class studied the area of Downtown Cleveland near the west bank of the Flats that the team dubbed “Irishtown Greenway” and provided recommendations for the client, The Trust for Public Land.  Their strategic plan to create the lake link part of the Ohio Towpath Trail was presented through three focus areas: greenway, development, and marketing, which ultimately provided extensive design perspective and value to breathe new life into this historic area.
