Drew Carey Saves Cleveland:Redevelopment

Part five of Reason Saves Cleveland with Drew Carey. I have been sharing these all week. Lots of good ideas here on bottom-up redevelopment.

“Cleveland has spent billions on big-ticket urban redevelopment efforts including heavily subsidized sports stadiums and convention centers that have utterly failed to revitalize the city’s economy. Should the city be pouring even more money into and pinning yet higher hopes on long-odds mega-projects? Or should they realize that bottom-up projects driven by the actual residents and private-sector investors are the best was to build a vibrant city for the long haul?”
