A revamped East 4th Street in Cleveland is now officially in the works following Council's approval Monday night (2/6) of using a surplus of $1.4 million in tax increment financing. 

The proposed project would also see the creation of a "Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area," where alcoholic drinks would be allowed outside of the restaurants in "open containers" allowing customers to walk around East 4th. The DORA would be the first one in Cleveland.

The area's refurbishment is expected to cost a total of around $1.65 million, with the developer funding the costs that run beyond the $1.4 million.  The proposal includes a re-imagining of restaurant patios, with the fences and barrier removed to create open seating, with special landscaping and greenery to separate the patio spaces. It also includes adding a pocket park, public art and updated lighting, and moving the valet area. Review the plans for Ord. No. 1051-2022
