Abstract: Cleveland, Ohio has suffered from shrinking inner-city wealth resulting in reduced budgets for its urban infrastructure. Now, led by the Greater Cleveland Growth Association, the city and suburban communities and special authorities have taken a cooperative look at where they stand. With help from the Urban Institute, they totaled infrastructure spending needs. They determined which expenditures could be postponed and which results could be achieved at lower costs. With revised priorities and costs, tactics for raising the necessary money were developed.
