Euclid Waterfront Improvements Plan

Updated August 2018

“Euclid is close to realizing a brilliant lakefront project that could serve as a precedent for Cleveland, if not the entire Great Lakes region.” – Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer (November 2017)

Lakefront

Euclid’s vision to provide unprecedented public waterfront access, habitat enhancements, and upland stability is moving closer to reality after a historic vote by Euclid City Council on August 6th, 2018 which authorizes the City to begin construction on Phase II in September 2018.

Phase II Updated Milestones:

  • The City is positioned to break ground on the western portion of Phase II (Sims Park to E.242nd Street) in September 2018 after Euclid City Council approved a construction contract with low and best bidder Mark Haynes Construction. Construction on this phase is anticipated to be complete by October 31, 2019. This milestone reflects years of planning and the support of public and private partnerships.
  • The City has over $7M in hand specifically for western phase construction activity and is actively fundraising to complete Phase II and future phases.
  • In Fall 2017, the City successfully executed easement agreements and property donations from project area stakeholders, setting the stage for improved economic opportunity in the region while providing ecological benefits, erosion control, and unprecedented public access to Lake Erie.
  • As of April 2018 (after 19 months of review!), the City  secured all State and Federal permits for Phase II.
  • The project continues to receive local and national press.  A selection of recent articles is below:
