Thanks to Jennifer Conn and Spectrum News 1 for covering this story. Among other things, we are pleased to see that the land bridge idea is top of mind with Cuyahoga County planners.
CUYAHOGA COUNTY, Ohio — Cuyahoga County planners have undertaken what could be considered a Herculean task: to connect and make about 32 miles of Lake Erie shoreline publicly accessible. About 90% of the Cuyahoga County shoreline is not available to the public and its 1.2 million residents, the county said.
The county’s goal is to open much of that shoreline by forming partnerships with hundreds of property owners — from single families and property associations to special interest groups and descendants of early industrialists who’ve owned properties for decades.
