Merriman Valley Schumacher Master Plan

The City of Akron and the City of Cuyahoga Falls are collaborating on a master planning process for the Merriman Valley and Schumacher areas of our cities.  These areas are in need of a new vision for responsible land use in both previously-developed and undeveloped areas.  The master plan will include urban design, transportation, economic, zoning, environmental, and recreational components. 

The two cities have hired Farr Associates - a nationally recognized planning firm that specializes in urban design, sustainable architecture, and environmentally-sensitive design – to engage residents, businesses, and other stakeholders in developing the master plan.  Ample opportunities to get involved in the planning process will be provided, with both in-person and online engagement activities.  The master planning process began in April 2021 and is expected to conclude in early 2022.

Through this planning process, the two cities hope to create enduring neighborhoods that are more walkable, healthy, equitable, beautiful, and resilient places to live, work, and play.
