Noble Neighborhood community assessment presentation is April 7
Students from CWRU’s Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (MSASS) will present results of a Noble Neighborhood community assessment at the monthly Noble Neighbors meeting on Tuesday, April 7, at 7 p.m. The meeting will take place at Noble Road Presbyterian Church, 2780 Noble Road.
Eighteen students, under the direction of Mark Chupp and Nina Holzer, have focused their studies on four themes: housing, retail, safety, and children and youth. Their work is part of a larger neighborhood assessment that began in February, in which MSASS teams, in partnership with Noble Neighbors, visually surveyed every property in the northeast quadrant of Cleveland Heights. Data on property use and conditions are being digitally mapped using geographic information system (GIS) technology. The full report will be available at www.nobleneighbors.com in the summer.
The results of the MSASS student work will be a valuable tool for city and neighborhood planners to identify assets and determine strategies for development, and anyone interested is invited to attend the presentation. There is a parking lot across the street from the church at the corner of Noble and Navahoe roads.
