^ guise -- if we didn't have the cuyahoga national park we wouldn't even be having a debate. the sprawl would have barreled and spread straight down to akron. instead, maybe there would still be things like all the nice tomato and farm greenhouses on the westside suburbs remaining, instead of the modern sprawl development.

that said, myself and i am sure everyone are certainly very glad the park was created for its own sake.

for those that don't know, the cuyahoga valley national park directly between cleveland and akron is one of america's newest national parks (it became a national recreation area in 1974 & was elevated to national park in 2000). it is the very major physical seperation between the two cities and sprawl from cleveland grew down around it, but also maybe more east and west than it might have.
