One Response to “Economic Development & Community Building with Steven Minter”

  1. The point “Understand significance of arts and cultures role of economic development in Cleveland” is particularly valid. Cleveland might not have the same industry as it used to in the past, but it does have great arts. Only a handful of institutions get mentioned in that context, like The Cleveland Orchestra; but Cleveland has a lot more to offer. I think that we need to publicize the arts as our asset to attract people to Cleveland and to expand the local support base.
