A City in Transition

Listen by clicking here

The City of East Cleveland initially received 2.2 million dollars of federal funds as part of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. With this and other funds, dilapidated homes have been demolished and other homes rehabilitated. What does this mean for the residents of a city that is in the first stages of economic redevelopment?

This week Regionally Speaking brings together two people from the East Cleveland Mayor’s Office: Anthony Houston, Program Manager for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, and Mansell Baker, Assistant to the Mayor’s Chief of Staff. An additional voice in the conversation is Fannie Hall, a resident of East Cleveland who has lived in the same East Cleveland home for 49 years. With these different perspectives, listen to how economic redevelopment measures are shaping a city in transition.

I'm not sure if 2.2 million is enough for any serious rehabilitation.
