Co-hosted by Dan Rice, President and Chief Executive Officer at Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition and convener of Akron Civic Commons, this Civic Commons Learning Journey offered participants the opportunity to explore the collaborative reimagining of public places across three neighborhoods in Akron, Ohio. As network members explored the city by foot and bike, they heard from more than 30 residents and community leaders on the importance of trust, working across silos and sharing a vision for places and neighborhoods where all are welcome.
