The Five Pointes intersection will receive a $50,000 investment in Streetscape
The Five Pointes intersection will receive a $50,000 investment in streetscaping, thanks to a grant awarded to Greater Collinwood Development Corporation from the Cuyahoga County Community Development Supplemental Grant program. The Five Pointes Streetscape Project will implement recommendations from the September 24, 2018 Saint Clair Avenue Corridor Study. The St. Clair Avenue Corridor Study identified beautification, bike and pedestrian friendly amenities, and healthy lifestyle amenities as key needs. To address these needs, the Five Pointes Streetscape Project will provide ladder style crosswalks, decorative place making banners, street trees, and bike racks. Increased foot traffic, enhanced resident and visitor satisfaction, transportation equity by providing access to bike racks in an area previously having none, pedestrian safety, and an enhanced sense of place for the Five Pointes Intersection will benefit the Collinwood community as a result of this project. Five Pointes is a vibrant intersection, home to Collinwood High School, the Cleveland Public Library Collinwood Branch and the Five Pointes Retail District. We additionally thank Councilman Anthony Hairston for his thought leadership and support on this project. Greater Collinwood Development Corporation will keep the community informed and involved as this project progresses.
