Ohio’s older industrial cities weathered a number of challenges in recent years, including population loss, ongoing economic transition, and neighborhood instability worsened by the Great Recession and foreclosure crisis.
Smaller legacy cities experienced many of these challenges like their larger neighbors Cleveland and Cincinnati, but have different opportunities and obstacles to confront in achieving revitalization.
OCDCA is partnering with Greater Ohio Policy Center (GOPC) to host a webinar that will explore the findings of a recent report by GOPC that examined how smaller legacy cities, from Akron to Zanesville, fared over the last 15 years.
GOPC will share best practices that smaller legacy cities throughout the Midwest and Northeast used to jumpstart revitalization.
