UPCOMING: Talking Community Benefits in Cleveland

July 31, 2012 -- Partnership for Working Families

The Partnership’s Kathleen Mulligan-Hansel and Ben Beach will both be invited panelists in an August 3 symposium on community benefits convened by the City of Cleveland. The symposium, entitled, “Community Benefits: Making Development Accountable” follows on Mayor Frank Jackson’s call, in his 2012 State of the City Address, for increased use of Community Benefits Agreements on major development projects.

The Partnership has been working closely with Policy Matters Ohio and Mayor Jackson’s office to advance the community benefits conversation in Cleveland, where billions of dollars’ worth of new development are expected in the coming years.
