Learn more about key projects recommended for state funding

In this week’s “GCP Insight” video, Alesha Washington, the Greater Cleveland Partnership’s vice president of government advocacy, discusses why some of the projects that the GCP is recommending for funding in the state’s 2016-17 capital bill were chosen.

GCP is calling on state leaders to provide funding for 11 projects in our region. Tops on GCP’s priority list is the Lakefront Pedestrian Bridge. GCP is requesting $8.5 million in funding for this project which will accelerate private investment in the downtown lakefront.

On February 12, GCP hosted members of the Ohio General Assembly and priority project sponsors ( photo below) for a discussion outlining the specifics behind each request.

The first draft of the 2016-17 bill is expected in early April.
