Last week, CNT kicked off the BUILT (Broadening Urban Investment to Leverage Transit) In Ohio partnership with the Office of Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and the cities of Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati. CNT and its partners will develop strategic advice on making new investments in transit, leveraging them towards economic development and applying for new opportunities in the federal Sustainable Communities partnership between HUD, DOT and EPA.
The BUILT partners assembled key decision-makers in each region to discuss the impacts of prior transportation investment decisions and the opportunity to move Ohio in a new, more sustainable direction. Stakeholders identified their region’s strengths, weaknesses and short term economic development opportunities.
