Step Up Downtown is Downtown Cleveland Alliance’s new vision and tactical plan for linking and enhancing development, public spaces, and destinations in Downtown Cleveland. Based on local market conditions and reflective of global trends, Step Up Downtown provides a development framework and set of priorities that are needed to take Downtown Cleveland to the next level of growth and development.
The plan was initiated in January 2014 by the Downtown Cleveland Alliance (DCA) to knit together a number of recent project and district planning efforts and develop downtown-wide strategies that can guide both private and public investment decisions through the next economic cycle.

It’s because of the community’s participation and feedback that this plan was made possible.
