Take a look at a recent Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs publication:

Housing Dynamics in Northeast Ohio: Setting the Stage for Resurgence by Thomas Bier

Document Type: Book
Publication Date: August 2017
The book presents an overview of regional housing dynamics and consequent impacts in Northeast Ohio since the 1940s. Focus is on the city of Cleveland and its host county. Dynamics are examined in terms of supply and demand, population movement, lifespan of buildings, and the influence of government on the choices people have when considering where to live. Impacts include housing decline and abandonment, change in property value, and urban sprawl. Recommendations, centered on tax-base growth sharing, are presented for altering existing dynamics to support Northeast Ohio’s resurgence.
