FreshWater is going On the Ground in Euclid

With ambitious waterfront improvements, the opening of the Amazon fulfillment center, and five opportunity zones in flux, all eyes seem to be on Euclid as it charts its next steps in reclaiming its status as a thriving inner-ring suburb.

FreshWater Cleveland will highlight the people, places, and projects shaping and transforming Euclid—as well as potential solutions to the myriad challenges facing the city—as part of a 10-week community reporting series kicking off this Thursday, Oct. 3.

Themes and topics will include education and youth; the reinvention of Euclid's industrial corridor; arts and culture; new developments in the downtown district; urban farming and community garden initiatives; and how residents are taking a stake in shaping Euclid's future.

Along with reported pieces, multimedia and photography will also help tell Euclid's ever-evolving story. Euclid native and current resident Jen Jones Donatelli will be acting as project editor.

This On the Ground initiative is being made possible by partnerships with the City of Euclid, Euclid City Schools, Tri-C, and Cuyahoga County Board of Health.

Stay tuned to FreshWater as we kick off our On the Ground—Euclid series this Thursday.
