In this section we present some of the
most dramatic “improvement” projects that (thankfully) never
happened. The most famous is the first initiative in the series: the proposed
Clark, Lee and Heights Freeways of the late 1960s. As many readers will
observe, the story is excerpted from Marian Morton’s “Cleveland
Heights: The Making of an Urban Suburb,” which is available at Borders,
Appletree Books and Amazon.com. The Cleveland Heights Historical Society
extends its gratitude to Ms. Morton and encourages everyone to obtain
a copy of her wonderful book.
Over the next year, additional stories will be added to the section,
so check back regularly for more bad things!
