News from Kermit Lind at Cleveland State:
The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization rescued more than 72 houses on Cleveland's west side. It and other neighborhood-based nonprofit clients of the UDLC have been leaders in this effort for several years. The nonprofit Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation is raising the capacity for recycling housing all over the county.
Students in clinical practice are providing legal services to facilitate these transactions and the rehabilitation work. They also participate in the development and advocacy of public policies and programs needed to stem the tide of abandonment and nuisance conditions that threaten the beneficial results of the good work described in the news report.
Here is a link to the report.
Thanks for the update, Kermit!
