Northeast Ohio Regional Summit

 Registration is closed for this event
The event will bring together local elected, civic and community leaders with state, and federal policy makers to seek bipartisan solutions to common challenges facing established suburbs, towns, and smaller cities around issues of housing, schools, transportation and water infrastructure investments. A major theme of this forum will be the federal surface transportation bill. The event will be from 10:00 a.m. (registration and coffee and light refreshments starting at 9:00) to 3:30 p.m. at the Ehrnfelt Recreation and Senior Center 18100 Royalton Road. Registration is $20 ($5 for students), payable in advance on the conference website or at the door


Featured speakers include Steve LaTourette, former Member of the United States Congress and head of the Republican Main Street Partnership, and David Rusk, a national expert who has worked extensively with state and federal policymakers on local government and regional issues.

The federal surface transportation bill is a multiyear infrastructure measure that expires this year. It presents an opportunity for us to address many of our most pressing issues while demonstrating a bipartisan consensus and common sense voice for meaningful action with our state and federal officials.   

Building One Ohio, an emerging coalition of local elected, business, labor, religious and educational leaders from established suburbs, towns, and smaller cities, is organizing the Summit, in cooperation with Building One America, a growing national organization and network of regional and statewide organizations.  Cleveland State University is lead sponsor for the Summit and is including it as an upcoming event in its longstanding Levin College Forum. Major sponsors including Laborers International Union of North America Local 860. Cosponsors include Kent State University’s Master of Public Administration Program. The Summit is endorsed by the Northeast Ohio City Council Association.
