Kamm's Corners is now home to one of Cleveland's greenest parking lots
The busiest parking lot in Kamm's Corners—and home of the Kamm's Corners Farmers Market—just got a lot greener.
Thanks to Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District’s (NEORSD) ongoing stormwater management efforts, what could have been a simple repaving project has instead transformed the city-owned lot at the corner of Rocky River Dr. and Lorain Ave. (aka Kamm's Corners) into Cleveland’s newest green infrastructure project.
No one could remember the last time this lot was paved—it had to be at least 20 years, and it felt like we needed to do something,” says Ben Campbell, director of commercial & industrial development for Kamm's Corners Development Corporation. “After we identified the sewer district as a potential funder for repaving, the project ended up being a collaboration between us, NEORSD, councilman Martin Keane, and the City of Cleveland. It turned into what we feel is a win-win project.”
