    Year of Vital Neighborhoods Kickoff

    Please join the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability as we kick off The Year of Vital Neighborhoods.



    Neighborhoods are the building blocks of a great urban area. They are the real places of daily life — places where people interact face to face, where transactions are made, and where a sense of identity and history is created. They are also the places where most people can live decent lives with the least environmental impact. By bringing opportunities together in close proximity, neighborhoods reduce the need for transportation.



    This event is FREE and open to the public.RTA’s FREE trolley stops right in front of City Hall. Parking is available at Willard Garage at regular rates.



    Please note, a photo ID is required to enter City Hall.



    Sustainable Cleveland 2019 is a 10-year initiative that engages everyone to work together to design and develop a thriving and resilient Cleveland that leverages its wealth of assets to build economic, social and environmental well-being for all.

    Critical Mass

     

    On the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world, cyclists congregate to ride in demonstration and in celebration. Critical Mass has no leaders and no agenda. Cleveland Critical Mass meets the last Friday of every month at Mall A downtown at 6:30pm and departs promptly at 7pm. We typically plan to meet at a local establishment following the ride. People come together to ride for many different reasons: to assert cyclists right to the road; to promote bikes as a fun, healthy and viable alternative to cars; to build a greater sense of community;to get more folks on bikes; or simply to celebrate bike love and ride in solidarity with other like-minded individuals and have some fun!

     

    See where Critical Mass is headed this month on Facebook.
