According to the Plain Dealer this past Monday, the Cleveland City Council gave its approval to redevelopment of the East Bank of the Flats.

As the article reads this project is a public/private partnership between the developer, the Port Authority and the City of Cleveland.

What is interesting is that Wolstein the developer needs to acquire the land to complete the project and the Port Authority, one of Wolstein's public partners, voted last Friday to use eminent domain if necessary.

Since there has been a semi-regular discussion on the Lakewood Buzz, I wonder if the Anti - Eminent Domain folks will raise some noise or will it just happen and nobody will care as long as it's a NIMBY.
