Ironwood Community Plan

The Toledo Design Collective (TDC) is helping assist Project Embracing and Restoring the Family (Project E.R.) to facilitate a community plan that helps to energize the Ironwood Community and build consensus among neighbors by visioning their own futures.

Ironwood, located on the southeast border of the City, is a small and spatially isolated community bounded by railroad tracks and busy roads. For decades, dedicated community members have led the charge to help keep Ironwood vibrant and active. With a rich history of small business and industry, a large population of young families, a large inventory of vacant land, and a growing organization in Project E.R., the TDC hopes to help Ironwood answer the question, “What’s next?”. Connecting this small community from border to border is one the first steps to move towards implementation.
