Noble Planning Study Online Survey is now live
Noble Road is the most significant street in the northeast section of Cleveland Heights, giving its name to an area known as the “Noble Neighborhood.” FutureHeights, in cooperation with several community partners, kicked off a planning study of Noble Road in fall 2018. The study will comprise a market analysis and revitalization plan for the commercial/mixed-use districts along the Noble Road Corridor. Among the many goals of the study are enhancing the image of the neighborhood and improving quality of life for residents.
Let us hear from you by taking this brief online survey. The survey will close at 5 p.m. on Jan. 11 so that we can compile the results for the Jan. 17 Community Meeting.
Attend a Community Meeting on Thursday, Jan. 17, 7 p.m. at the Cleveland Heights Community Center, to hear about alternative options and ideas about how to revitalize the corridor and enhance its image.

FutureHeights is working with Noble Neighbors; the cities of Cleveland Heights and East Cleveland; and NOAH, Northeast Ohio Alliance for Hope, the CDC for East Cleveland; FutureHeights has engaged Camiros, Ltd., a nationally recognized urban planning firm, and The Riddle Company, a real estate and economic development marketing consulting practice.
Throughout the approximately nine-month process, FutureHeights will seek input from neighborhood residents and other stakeholders. Community meetings and focus groups will be posted on the FutureHeights and Noble Neighbors websites.
The many goals of the planning process include:
- enhancing the image of the Noble Neighborhood by improving the commercial and mixed-use development at the neighborhood’s “front doors” along the Noble Corridor;
- improving the quality of life for residents of the Noble Neighborhood by providing higher quality retail and service businesses along the Noble Corridor;
- providing additional jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities for local residents;
- promoting “placemaking” and the resulting strengthening of community life;
- making productive use of sites that are currently vacant or under-utilized;
- promoting walking, bicycling and transit use along the corridor;
- increasing safety by facilitating development and revitalization that puts more eyes and ears on the street;
- increasing property and income tax revenues to the cities and school districts;
- ensuring that development is sustainable environmentally, socially and economically; and
- other goals identified in the community engagement process.
