Akron awarded $4 million to reimagine civic spaces, bring diverse communites together
The Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition was awarded $4 million to revitalize and connect public spaces, and work to counter the negative impact of economic and social fragmentation along a three-mile stretch in downtown Akron of the Towpath Trail. AKRON, Ohio - Akron has won $4 million to revitalize and connect public spaces along three miles of the Ohio & Erie Towpath Trail. The Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition received the grant through national initiative Reimagine the Civic Commons, a partnership between the JPB Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Kresge Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation. Chicago, Detroit and Memphis also won a grant. So did Philadelphia, where the pilot for the initiative took place. Here's where the money will go: The Civic Gateway - Between Cascade Plaza and Lock 3, the gateway is home to the highest paid employees and some of the largest businesses in the city. Park East - Between Bartges and Thornton streets, the area has mixed housing and an underused park setting. Summit Lake - At the southern end of Akron, the area has the most impoverished neighborhoods and is the hardest-hit census track areas in the county. Applying cities were challenged to find ways to bring people of all walks of life together to experience spaces in the same way. "This is to lift them up together as places where the billionaire and the person making minimum wage can access the place in the exact same way and causes that civic mixing that makes city life different from everything else," said Kyle Kutuchief, Akron program director for the Knight Foundation. To win the award, the Canalway Coalition put together a team that went into the neighborhoods and interviewed residents before planning events. "As much as trying to change the physical landscape, it addresses programming and our approach to doing it," said Dan Rice, president and CEO of the Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition. "It's actually changing the way we do business. When people ask, what have you got planned, we want to ask the community what their needs and priorities are." A few past programs: Summit Lake: Residents said they were afraid of the water because of the lake's ill-defined edges, so the Canalway planned a community day in April with pontoon boats rides and a fishing derby. Many of the 300 residents who came earned water safety certificates issued by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Downtown Akron: A cabin was placed in Cascade Plaza for two weeks, with a campfire, to bring people out of office buildings. Some came to make s'mores. "The concept there was, if people think of it as the gateway to the national park, why not bring a little bit the national park into downtown Akron and give people a reason to come out of those buildings," Rice said. The Civic Commons money will dovetail with the $5 million TIGER grant the city was awarded in July to complete the downtown promenade. The city will work on the Main Street side, the Canalway Coalition will focus on the trail. One project that's already under way is to improve Route 59 pedestrian bridge connecting to Lock 4. Groundswell Design Group is working on a design that will use landscaping, lighting and music to draw people across the bridge and into the city. Locally, the Canalway Coalition will work with the city of Akron, Akron Civic Theatre, Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority, Downtown Akron Partnership, Summit County Government and Summit Metro Parks to reimagine the chosen sites. To gather information from residents, initial community engagement meetings will take place. 6-8 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Akron Civic Theater 6-8 p.m. Sept. 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Reach Opportunity Center "The main part of design thinking is prototyping and continuing the feedback process from community," said Katelyn Freil, communications coordinator for the Canalway Coalition. "We'll be taking the feedback, evaluating it and seeing how it can be applied to the community. We don't know exactly what's coming next."
