City of Ravenna Connecting Communities Grant

Ravenna, Ohio
The Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS) established the Connecting Communities Program in 2010. The City of Ravenna received a Connecting Communities Planning grant to focus on the Old State Route 44 corridor. AMATS and GPD Group developed a vision of the corridor, its issues and possible solutions. The study resulted in the development of a range of solutions to the transportation, revitalization and economic challenges influencing the corridor and identifying potential funding sources for the solutions.
