Vacant Land Inventory for Urban Agriculture - Report for Urban Land Ecology Conference

Members of the Land Use & Planning Working Group presented this report at the 2009 Urban Land Ecology Conference. Using a combination of criteria developed by planners, crop scientists, researchers, GIS practitioners, and OSU Extension, this inventory will help achieve three goals:

  1. Identify strategic parcels land for urban agriculture in Cleveland
  2. Support farmland preservation efforts in the suburban communities in Cuyahoga County
  3. Inform land use decisions for the Cleveland and Cuyahoga County Land Banks when new parcels are acquired
