Dec. 12 meeting: Lorain Ave. bridge

December 2, 2016

Dear Lorain Avenue Stakeholder:

The Bellaire-Puritas Development Corporation and Councilman Kazy are inviting you to a meeting to learn about a grant opportunity for which we are applying to enhance the Lorain Avenue railroad bridge at West 143rd Street.

 Monday December 12th, 2016
6:00 PM

Mt. Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church

12826 Lorain Avenue

In 2013, the neighborhood identified the railroad bridge as one of the worst features of Lorain Avenue during the Lorain Avenue pedestrian-friendly planning process conducted by BPDC.  During this process, the community listed the bridge as one of the streetscape improvements they wanted to see happen on Lorain Avenue.  People said they feel unsafe walking under the bridge because it is dark, dirty and uninviting.  The bridge is the first impression that people have of this neighborhood when approaching from the west, whether on foot or in a vehicle, and acts as a natural dividing line between the eastern and western portions of Lorain Avenue in West Park.  One planning objective that came out of the TLCI study was to improve this neighborhood gateway.


We now have the opportunity to apply for funding to improve this bridge and would like to share our ideas with the community and get feedback from you.

We want your help! Please come next week to learn about the potential bridge project and to share your thoughts and opinion.

Although no RSVP is required, please feel free to contact one of us at Bryan or Melissa or call us at 216-671-2710 with any questions.
