Call for a Competition . . .

The Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Administration is looking to transform some unusable property into a new city park. See Steve Litt's article here.

An open idea + design competition, sponsored by several city institutions + organizations, should be pursued. Similar well-publicized competitions in Chicago + Philadelphia have garnered entries from around the world.

The last major open competition held locally, the Lakefront Design competition, was successful in drawing significant participation. Let's hope that this possible park competition can instigate a tradition of yearly design competitions in the city.
