Group 1 Final Report Released

The CPL150 Community Vision Plan | Group 1 Report includes recommendations for four initial branch communities:

  • Fleet Branch Slavic Village neighborhood
  • South Branch Clark-Fulton and Tremont neighborhoods
  • Sterling Branch Campus District and Central neighborhoods
  • Woodland Branch Central and Kinsman neighborhoods

The report articulates a wide-range of community priorities and reveals a clearer vision of the library’s role in each target area. Recommendations are organized into four nested levels of library experience: building, grounds, neighborhood, and services.

Neighborhood asset maps, programming concepts, and visual renderings produced through this process enable CPL to now conduct a finer grain analysis of the operational costs, interior architectural feasibility, and financial investments required to commit limited resources appropriately.

In 2019, the Cleveland Public Library will celebrate its 100 year anniversary. The CPL150: Community Vision Plan provides a road-map for actions worthy to celebrate in four years and beyond.
