I had a conversation with a friend today about extending the street scape of University Circle, Inc in Cleveland that would extend through East Cleveland to the border of Euclid. Often, change begins on the small things and the easiest to do. Other things like urban gardens, healthy play spaces for children, are on the canvas by the Mayor as well.
The City of East Cleveland and University Circle in Cleveland are neighbors, and share excellent university and health care and transportation options among many other things. In Instructions for the Cook: Recipes for the Cook by George Nemeth and Jack Ricchiuto, they examine small acts---the idea that transformation to be occur its does not need to happen on a grand scale. Small acts help individuals and communities realize the larger dream. As Jack would say," small is the new big".
