Building a More United Region--Together
The Northeast Ohio Sustainable Communities Consortium -- which has been called the most ambitious planning effort in half a century -- received strong support for their mission and work to date from The Plain Dealer editorial board today.
The Consortium, a group that is pursuing ANEO goals, is in the midst of a three-year planning project focused on developing a regional plan with the input of local elected leaders, government agencies, nonprofit groups and foundations.
The editorial board praised the Consortium's focus on practical matters like connecting workers to job centers but didn't gloss over the challenge such a project involves, saying, "These are not easy tasks. They require a level of trust that takes time to develop...the path toward a more united region will doubtless be bumpy, but it's a journey we need to take. Together."
