What is City Repair Cleveland?

Neighbor Up University's City Repair is about: building trusting relationships between neighbors; re-creating the Commons -- the place where neighbors gather to talk, support and empower each other; and unleashing creativity so neighbors can design and implement placemaking projects together. Neighborhood Connections was inspired by the City Repair Project in Portland, Oregon, and brought City Repair to Cleveland in 2013. Join us for City Repair gatherings Mondays this.

City Repair Cleveland Style

What is City Repair? City Repair began in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Portland, Oregon 17 years ago when Mark Lakeman wanted to create a community gathering space in his neighborhood.
