You’re invited to participate in a stakeholder session for Businesses (individuals who own, operate, or are an employee of a business on or nearby Cleveland Hopkins International Airport) to offer input on the potential for developing an “aerotropolis” around Cleveland Hopkins Airport. (What is an aerotropolis?)
The cities of Berea, Brook Park, Cleveland, Olmsted Falls and Parma, as well as the Cleveland Hopkins Airport have engaged the Center for Public Management of the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University to study the potential for developing an aerotropolis around the Cleveland Hopkins Airport. An aerotropolis is conceptually similar to a metropolis, with an airport city serving as the central business district of the aerotropolis. Geographically similar to the metropolis, the aerotropolis utilizes the airport as its central transportation node. The study will also include the potential for economic growth resulting from designation as an aerotropolis.
The stakeholder session will provide an opportunity for you to share your thoughts, ideas, expectations, and concerns for the proposed aerotropolis. The session will be held on Tuesday, February 16, 2010, from 9 – 10:30 AM at the I-X Center, One I-X Center Dr., Cleveland, OH 44135. Additional sessions may be scheduled as needed. Check in for the session begins at 8:30 AM. Refreshments will be provided.
