Shaker Heights Development Corporation VISTA
SHDC’s sub-site VISTA project is focused on a co-work and resource facility, The Dealership, located in the only LMI census tract (1836.03-1) in Shaker Heights. The Dealership has served as a hub of entrepreneurial energy for the past 5 years and it is SHDC’s goal to grow the hub so that its spokes reach into the Chagrin-Lee corridor and potentially other commercial districts in the city over the long-term. The SHDC’s vision for the Chagrin-Lee commercial corridor is a district that is home to tech, health care, design, light industrial, makers, artistic entrepreneurs and professional service firms. The physical spaces that will house these firms will be flexible, sustainable and cost effective. There will be place-based physical improvements such as bike lanes, public art and other amenities that brand the commercial district.

Member Duties : The VISTA member will work to engage community members in surrounding neighborhoods to determine the needs and resources that are necessary to bring the community out of poverty. The member will do this through conducting focus groups and creating community advisory councils. The overall goal of these activities is to enhance the skills and employ-ability of the community, and increase employment opportunities for the community at large. Once the needs are identified, the member will work to establish partnerships, and develop programs that will fill the gaps identified by working with leadership to determine the feasibility of the proposed programming. The member will also research existing programs that are easily adaptable, and create a volunteer network that could deliver the programs to the community. Finally, the VISTA member will work to establish funding sources that will institutionalize the programs in the agency, for long term delivery to the community.
