Crain's Cleveland Business turns 30 this week, and we're taking the opportunity to look back a little bit over the last 30 years in the regional economy, to a time when May Company, Higbee's were on Cleveland's Public Square and Halle's was just down the street, when Don Plusquellic was a young man on Akron's city council, and the Browns and the Indians still shared Municipal Stadium. Tuesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop and guests from Crain's for a look at how we got where we are and where we might be headed.

The city of Cleveland needs to build up areas around Rapid stations just like they have set up around the DC Metro Stations.  They have put apartments, townhomes, grocery stores, and amennities right in walking distance of the Metro.  I think that would draw people back in to Cleveland.  Right now rapid stations are simply parking lots with nothing happening around them.

Cleveland needs to encourage and invite new immigrants, as Boston and Philly have done. The new Welcoming Center for New Immigrants will help, but the city and state should do more. Immigrants will re-populate the area and they are true entrepreneurs.
Thank you.
