Abstract: This paper traces the revitalization of Toledo's Maumee riverfront through a public/private cooperative effort that has spanned more than a decade. The development and funding strategy, urban design framework, and emergence of the corporate leadership of Owens-Illinois, Inc. are described, along with individual projects now completed or underway along the riverfront. Finally, the paper summarizes the lessons that other cities in similar need of revitalization can learn from Toledo's experience.
