CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Our communities are ready for a comeback: creating new jobs, building new homes and embracing old friends again. But every comeback has its challenges.

19 News is committed to telling your stories — the good and the bad.

That’s why we’ve started a project called Building a Better CLE.

We will celebrate the good, put a spotlight on the struggles, and ask the tough questions that will lead to solutions.

Each month will feature a different Cleveland neighborhood, starting with Detroit-Shoreway.

Our 3, 4, 5 and 6 PM newscasts will broadcast live today from the Capitol Theatre.

Local leaders joined us all afternoon to help you learn what makes this neighborhood tick.

We first welcomed Mike Marous of Marous Brothers Construction for a discussion on the Capitol Theatre renovation as well as the revitalization of Battery Park.

An interview with Justin Gould, board president of the LGBT Center, followed.

Up next was Emily Muttilo, a Research Fellow at the Center for Community Solutions and neighborhood resident.

Matt Weinkam, Executive Director of Literary Cleveland and Founder of the Gordon Square Review, shared more on the arts and culture of the neighborhood.

Joshua Jones Forbes of Northwest Neighborhoods CDC spoke to the Detroit-Shoreway’s economy. He also touched on crime and safety.

Our final guest was Ward 15 Councilperson Jenny Spencer, who represents Cleveland’s Cudell, Edgewater and Detroit-Shoreway neighborhoods.

Editor’s Note: This story is part of 19 News’ Building a Better CLE series, featuring the city’s most historic and up-and-coming neighborhoods. Below, you can explore Cleveland’s neighborhoods and see what makes them unique compared to others in our great city.

This data was collected, compiled and recently published by the Center for Community Solutions. Interpret the data with caution, as it contains estimates which carry large margins of error. The data includes figures from the Ohio Department of Health and U.S. Census Bureau.
