The Lorain Harbor Area-Wide Planning Project Area consists of five publicly-owned properties, totaling 534 acres, located along the Black River and within close proximity to Lake Erie. These five sites are important to the revitalization of Lorain’s historic urban waterfront. The project area has the potential to transform into a mixed-use and sustainable community, featuring nature trails that connect the public to Lake Erie. In addition, all the sites are adjacent to the downtown area and have water access.
