About Us

Regional CollaborationThe Department was officially created on April 25th, 2011 by County Ordinance 02011-0009 promoting collaboration to advance economic development, good government and efficiency, and key public policy initiatives such as efforts to support our natural resources and improve public health. This is an exciting time for regional collaboration as a critical mass continues to develop and local officials continue to see the emerging benefits. County Executive Ed FitzGerald has made collaboration a priority and our communities are responding; multi-county efforts, supported by local foundations and federal assistance, are advancing our goals and leveraging our efforts; and the state is exploring means of supporting innovation and shared services.

The department staff is committed to providing quality service through facilitating projects, promoting shared services and other efficiencies, conducting policy research, and locating additional resources to advance the prosperity of communities across Cuyahoga County.
