CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency is seeking the public’s help to develop a new 30-year transportation plan for Cuyahoga County and four neighboring counties.
The plan, called eNEO2050: An Equitable Future for Northeast Ohio, aims to expand the way people move across Cuyahoga, Lorain, Lake, Geauga and Medina counties. It will serve as a policy blueprint for future road, bridge public transit, rail and bike and hiking-trail projects. It will also explore land use and environmental issues and examine low-income areas to help improve housing and economic development policies.
NOACA will study the region’s current transportation map and accessibility, and investigate potential new modes of transit, like autonomous vehicles or hyperloops. It aims to ensure workers can get to their jobs without a car, and that there is equal access to new transit options.
The plan is set to be completed by early summer 2021.
To get started though, NOACA wants your thoughts.
It’s holding a series of virtual townhalls for residents across the region to weigh in on the plan through the summer.

- Lake County Aug. 12
- Lorain County Aug. 19
