Buckeye-Larchmere Transformational Narrative


The Saint Luke’s Foundation of Cleveland began the transformational program in the Buckeye-Larchmere area in 2005. A Community Focused Grant was awarded to our neighborhoods to carry out a community planning initiative that engages residents and other stakeholders of the focusedĀ area, supporting neighborhood improvements.

A key component of the Transformational Plan is to build on the existing are strengths, assets and anchors, to promote neighborhood health and stability.

The Saint Luke’s Foundation has awarded the neighborhoods five-million dollars over a seven-year period under the guidance of Neighborhood Progress, Inc. (NPI), who serves as the fiscal agent for the grant.

Buckeye Shaker Square Development Corporation is working with NPI to continue the implementation of strategies that address priority concerns with the focused areas.
