The panelists will include:

Pam Carson, executive director of the Trust for Public Land, Ohio
Jeff Ramsey, executive director of the Detroit-Shoreway Community Development Corporation
Donna Studniarz, director of strategic initiatives for Cleveland Metroparks
Bob Brown, director of the City of Cleveland’s City Planning Commission

The program will be moderated by Tony Coyne, president of Mansour, Gavin, Gerlack & Manos Co., L.P.A., and chair of the City of Cleveland’s City Planning Commission.

“What’s Happening? Cleveland’s Waterfronts” is made possible with the support of a Civic Engagement Grant from Cleveland State University.

The forum is free and open to the public.
