The Cuyahoga Valley is the setting for one of the most significant examples of industrialization, urbanization, degradation, and preservation in America. Benefiting from a geographic location midway between extensive deposits of natural resources, with access to land and water transportation networks, and fostering the development of interrelated industries, the lower Cuyahoga Valley helped Greater Cleveland become one of the most important industrial centers in the world. Today, Northeast Ohio and other post-industrial regions are faced with questions of how to foster economic growth and attract new investment while creating a high quality of life for our citizens.

By working together, we can enhance this Valley for ourselves and future generations, and enjoy the benefits of a working river, healthy valley, innovative business center, diverse community, and a destination for cultural and recreational experiences. Just as our economic and cultural foundations began here, so too can our region’s renewal.
