We Plan CLE

  • City Club Cleveland 850 Euclid Avenue Cleveland, OH, 44114 United States (map)

Everyone contributes to places that matter. We Plan CLE is an annual event, open to all, designed to foster discussion and innovation.

A week-long series of events focused on a different theme each year to encourage discussion, collaboration and great ideas. We invite you to join the conversation!


We Plan CLE 2016: REPURPOSE 

We make critical decisions about our community every day. Once the big question facing our city and region was simply, “How shall we grow?” The big question we now face is “How shall we re-grow our communities and make that growth sustainable?” No single person, profession or group can answer that question effectively. We need to collaborate and consider different perspectives, sparking new ideas that illuminate a path to a bright future for Cleveland and our region. REPURPOSE.
