Creating Great Places in the Heights

FutureHeights presents Creating Great Places in the Heights, a public forum on creative place-making, on Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. at The BottleHouse Brewing Company, 2050 Lee Road.

No tickets are required, but let us know you are coming by RSVPing here.

Desirable communities sometimes happen out of sheer luck, but more often they are great by design.

In this community forum, our panel discusses the art of Creative Place-Making. Place-Making is more than just building physical spaces, it is the art of elevating the human experience of a space. What is the role of Place-Making in the Heights? What are exciting local examples of Place-Making in our community? What more can be done?


Bob Brown
Former director of the Cleveland Planning Commission and interim director of Midtown Cleveland, will discuss the human side of community spaces through the lens of physical and human development, and local examples of place-making in the Heights.

Ali Lukascy-Love
Architect and Community Projects Manager at City of Euclid, will talk about place-making projects in Collinwood and Euclid and how they’ve helped transform the fabric and reputation of a neighborhood.

Nelson Beckford
Senior Program Officer for A Strong Neighborhood at the Saint Luke’s Foundation, will talk about the success of the award-winning Making Our Own Space (MOOS) initiative and how similar projects can reinvent communities.


Mark Chupp and Vince Reddy
