About the Project
The Lorain Harbor Area-Wide Planning Project Area consists of five publicly-owned properties 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.
This project is led by Lorain County with support from the USEPA Land Revitalization Program. Key
partners include the City of Lorain, the Lorain Port Authority, the Lorain Growth Corporation, Charleston
Village Society, and the Black River Area of Concern (AOC) Advisory Committee.
