Stepping Up The Lakewood Border

1368454882-landmark_park_proposal_rendering_neighbors_in_action_high_resLAKEWOOD — “With plans for the Shoppes on Clifton development raising eyebrows along the border of Cleveland and Lakewood, one local group offered an alternate proposal for the property.

According to Neighbors in Action, the community organization behind the park plans, the space ‘would be a multifunctional green space positioned behind the current structure’s magnificent portico,envisioned to remain in place as the park’s focal feature.’ The group points out that Shoppes on Clifton developer Carnegie Companies’ latest publicly available schematic has a void where the Fifth Church of Christ Scientist is now located – on the corner at West 117th Street and Lake Avenue. Group spokesman Jeon Francis notes that the church, vacant since 1989, has avoided demolition, though its future as a standing structure is still very much up in the air.”
