Vibrant Shaker neighborhoods create a more vibrant Shaker.
Enter Moreland Rising: the City- and neighborhood-led collaboration with arts, business and development partners to create a Moreland hub of innovation.
Together, we will:
- Catalyze entrepreneurship along the Chagrin-Lee corridor
- Explore new ways for neighbors to connect with neighbors
- Cultivate an environment that continues to inspire art and artists
- Encourage innovative housing designs that set the standard for years to come
In September 2016, the City announced the Shaker Design Competition, which seeks Design/Build teams who will create the next generation of top-quality, sustainable middle-income housing on tax-abated land in the City of Shaker Heights. Learn more about the Shaker Design Competition.
