ORC a Proud Contributor to CVNP’s New Visitor Center Project

On January 8, 2018, the Conservancy for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) broke ground on a new $6 million state-of-the art visitor center. Agent Lauren Falvey was an invited attendee.

In early 2017, ORC was selected by the National Park Service (NPS) to provide residential relocation assistance for 6 occupants on a tract of land in the Village of Boston in Summit County, OH, property that was donated to the park for the visitor center. One of the vacated structures, an historic, 3,600 SF building (pictured right), will soon become the centerpiece of the new Visitor Center.

Congratulations to the CVNP on this exciting development! ORC is proud to have contributed to this long-awaited resource for your millions of yearly visitors!
