Quiet Crisis Averted

The Civic Commons will host a talk this evening at the Cuyahoga County Public Library on Snow Road in Parma which will serve as an update to the “Quiet Crisis” series that ran in the Plain Dealer more than a decade ago. Spearheaded by former Plain Dealer chief editorial writer Joe Frolik, the series focused on the economic struggles crippling Northeast Ohio: a failing school system, corruption, sprawl, and more. Frolik will sit on the panel this evening along with Karen Gahl-Mills, the executive director for Cuyahoga Arts and Culture; developer Ari Maron; Quentin McCorvey Sr. of the Cleveland/Cuyahoga County Workforce Investment Board and Brad Whitehead, president of the Fund for Our Economic Future. They’ll let us know if we’re in better or worse shape than we were at the dawn of the new millenium. Talk is from 5 to 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public. (Allard)
