why we're doing it

The City of Cleveland and the Harvard Community Service Center launched a Lee-Harvard Master Plan. We want to bring supporters and residents together to celebrate the rich history and legacy of the neighborhood. We will promote the preservation of the community's arts and culture by collecting oral histories and scanning images. We will use these stories to inform the developers of what Lee-Harvard could be!
