                                           BUILD UP GREATER CLEVELAND
                                           A TRADITION OF REGIONAL LEADERSHIP
                                           For 25 years, Build Up Greater Cleveland (BUGC) has effectively served as
                                           a regional advocate and coordinator for investment in and improvement of
                                           Greater Cleveland’s infrastructure. BUGC, a program of the Greater Cleveland
                                           Partnership (GCP) in conjunction with the Cleveland Engineering Society (CES),
                                           serves as an invaluable guiding force in northeast Ohio.

                                           BUGC stakeholders and partners recognize that Greater Cleveland’s “hidden
                                           assets” (streets, bridges, water and sewage systems, public transportation) are
                                           often taken for granted while the demand for improvements is significant and the
                                           resources limited.

                                           Greater Cleveland’s infrastructure network demands regular monitoring and
                                           maintenance. Improvements are constant, costly and routinely extend across
                                           municipal boundary lines. Over the last 25 years, BUGC has helped to attract
                                           more than $6 billion of infrastructure and transportation funding to Greater
                                           Cleveland to improve our bridges, roadways, waterways and public utilities. But
                                           there is much more to do.

                                           In 2007 and 2008, BUGC invested more than $638 million in capital projects
                                           throughout Cuyahoga County to maintain and enhance the existing public
                                           infrastructure system. Road improvements represent the largest expenditure.
                                           BUGC allocated nearly $272 million in contracts to road projects. BUGC’s
                                           commitment to reinvesting in aging infrastructure extends well beyond the
                                           surface. Over the last two years, BUGC has invested approximately $165 million
                                           in water infrastructure improvements. The overall extent of BUGC’s two-year
                                           capital investment is as follows:

     BUGC is a successful model of how regional
     cooperation can benefit our community.
     Created in 1983 at the urging of then-
     Mayor George Voinovich, BUGC has worked
     closely with its partners and stakeholders,
     encouraging efficient and focused spending of
     precious tax dollars to preserve and upgrade
     our infrastructure.

     Greater Cleveland’s infrastructure – its roads,
     bridges, water and sewage systems and more
     – form the foundation of our community. It’s
     expensive to maintain and upgrade. BUGC, its
     stakeholders and its partners are committed to
     getting the most out of every dollar spent on
     enhancing our infrastructure.

     In late 2008, BUGC began the process
     to secure resources from the Federal
     Government under the proposed economic
     stimulus plan. A significant portion of the
     $787 billion federal stimulus package focuses
     on investment in the country’s infrastructure
     network in order to create jobs and impact
     to the economy. According to the Federal
     Highway Administration, $1.25 billion in
     infrastructure investment creates nearly
     35,000 jobs in our communities. BUGC
     stakeholders have identified $2.8 billion in
     projects requests and have submitted the
     unified package to local, state and federal
     government officials.

     The results of the stimulus package are taking
     shape. The BUGC stakeholders and partners
     continue their collaborative efforts to advance
     key infrastructure, transportation and public
     utility projects for the betterment of Greater
     Cleveland and northeast Ohio.

     To date, northeast Ohio has received over
     $260 million for key infrastructure and
     transportation projects. What follows are
     descriptions of some of the infrastructure
     goals and accomplishments for BUGC’s five
     public stakeholders for fiscal years 2007-2008.

The City of Cleveland (the “City”) has targeted infrastructure improvements and
maintenance as essential to the City’s vitality and growth. The City continuously       nearly	a	quarter	of	
makes substantial infrastructure investments that allow Cleveland to function
better today and to grow its economic base in the future. These initiatives are
                                                                                        a	billion	dollars	in

                                                                                       water	infrastructure.
In 2006, the City conducted a thorough assessment of its capital needs, its ability
to pay for capital improvements and its capacity to complete major development
projects that had been guaranteed funding. Upon conclusion of that assessment,
the City confirmed its substantial capital needs, but its funding capacity was
greatly insufficient in comparison.

Thus the City has limited recourse to address such financial challenges.
Historically, the City utilizes general obligation bonds, its full faith and credit
debt instrument to finance public improvements including infrastructure.
Because debt capacity was limited, the City made the decision to forego a general
obligation bond issuance until 2007 in order to increase its ability to borrow.

In 2007, the City issued $45 million in general obligation bonds. The majority
of the bond revenues was utilized by the City’s Division of Engineering and
Construction for infrastructure improvements. In 2007, the City awarded more
than $20 million in infrastructure improvement construction contracts.

     MAJOR PROJECT SNAPSHOT 2008 - 2012

     In 2008, the City identified 42 capital projects in various stages of planning, design, and/or
     construction resulting in an investment of nearly $280 million in road and bridge rehabilitation
     improvements in the City over a five-year period. The City’s investment in the top three capital
     projects - the Euclid Corridor Transportation Project, Fulton Road Bridge and the West 3rd Lift
     Bridge - total $163 million in capital improvements and represent more than 58 percent of its
     projected infrastructure investment from 2008 to 2012.

     DIVISION OF WATER

     The City also operates the eighth largest water supply system in the United States that serves
     the City and 73 suburban municipalities in Cuyahoga, Medina, Summit and Geauga counties.
     The Division of Water (the “Division”) service area covers more than 640 square miles and serves
     more than 1.5 million people. The Division contracted for approximately $55 million in capital
     improvements in 2007, leveraging $98 million in other resources. Funds were primarily used
     to address continuing renovations at the Morgan, Baldwin and Nottingham plants, equipment
     and rehabilitation of water mains and the implementation of the coordinated Geographical
     Information System.

The five largest projects total $96 million and account for 88 percent
of the total contracts let in 2008. In fiscal years 2008-2012, the City
will invest more than $278 million in water improvement projects.

City capital infrastructure improvement projects are financed primarily
through the use of general obligation bond proceeds, State Issue 2 and
Local Transportation Improvement Programs. However, the volatility
of the current economic market warrants that the City maximizes its

     CLEVELAND-CUYAHOGA COUNTY PORT AUTHORITY
      The Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority (the “Port”) serves as an
      economic engine for Greater Cleveland, and is positioned to further bolster and
      grow our region’s economy in numerous ways.

      While the impact of the Port’s maritime activities are significant, the Port’s
      development financing program also serves as a catalyst for infrastructure
      improvements and other economic development activities in Greater Cleveland.

      Historically, the Port has served as a key public partner in the advancement of
      catalytic real estate projects that drive the resurgence of economic investment
      in the region. Since 1993, the Port has financed more than $1.5 billion worth of
      capital improvements and economic development projects that are integral to
      advancing Greater Cleveland’s economy.

      Established in 1997, the Port’s Bond Fund Program provides long-term, fixed
      interest rate financing of $1 million to $10 million to credit worthy businesses,
      governments and non-profit organizations for owner-occupied industrial,
      commercial, non-profit and infrastructure projects. The Port has issued more
      than $274 million in bonds over the last two years to local businesses to finance
      capacity-building infrastructure projects, assist in key land acquisition, and        The	Port’s	
      generate and spur job growth. Examples of the Port’s investments include:
                                                                                             maritime

MARITIME

While the Port provides financing to community and economic
development projects, it also recognizes the need to substantially
invest in its own infrastructure and operations. Industry experts
forecast cargo traffic will exceed the current capacity of many
coastal ports by 2020, thus providing additional incentive for the
Port to assess its future growth opportunities.

In 2007, major maritime capital improvements consisted of:
	 •	 Installation	of	bulkheading	at	the	Old	River	Property	
     at a cost of $494,551
                                                                     Port Warehouses          Working Ship
	 •	 Investment	of	$492,000	for	the	construction	of	new
     dock face

	 •	 Replacement	of	timber	curb	totaling	$75,000.

In 2008, the Port allocated $150,000 toward dock and
warehouse capital improvements.

LOOKING AHEAD . . . PORT RELOCATION

The Port is seeking to grow its current lines of business through
the creation of additional and/or new Port facilities to handle
bulk cargo, break-bulk cargo and ultimately containerized cargo.
                                                                     Tugboats
The existing port facility, which encompasses a 44-acre bulk
terminal and a 1,850 linear foot dock, is insufficient to handle
the anticipated demands of the continuous growth of next-
generation cargo and containerization. The aforementioned
potential growth in existing and new lines of business
necessitates a significant improvement in the Port’s facilities.
The footprint of the port will need to accommodate increased
demands.

The Port’s ambitious plans for the future call for the relocation
of its facilities at an estimate cost of $575 million. The Port’s
growing physical infrastructure needs are perhaps the most
dominant reason for a new facility. The Port’s preferred             Working Ship
relocation to E. 55th Street would provide improved intermodal
logistics and investment opportunities.

      The tragic 2007 Minneapolis bridge collapse has resulted in a heightened
      awareness about the structural integrity of our nation’s bridges. While failures
      such as the one in Minneapolis are extremely rare, rigorous state and county
      inspections combined with decades of repair are necessary in providing a reliable
      and safe bridge system.

      The County Engineer annually inspects its bridges to determine capital
      improvement priorities. The County’s current inventory includes 84 bridges
      built before 1950. The average age of bridges under the County’s control is
      about 49 years. Due to their age, an intensive maintenance and repair program is
      required. Rehabilitation is possible to extend the useful life of the structure but
      replacement may be necessary to ensure the health and safety of those using the
      transportation system. In either case, improvements are designed to extend the
      useful life of a bridge by 20 to 50 years.

            has	spent	nearly	$1	million	annually	in

FUNDING

Large scale road and bridge improvement projects warrant
intergovernmental coordination. To the highest extent possible, the County
seeks to leverage its resources with federal and state funds. Capital project
funding is largely dependent upon two primary factors - availability of
funding and project type. Most projects are financed by a combination of
federal, state and local funds. On average, for qualifying projects, nearly
80% of funding is provided by federal and state resources with 20%
provided by the local government.

The County Engineer works with the Northeast Ohio Areawide
Coordinating Agency (NOACA) to access key federal funding. For fiscal
years 2008-2011, NOACA has allocated more than $61 million for capital
projects in Cuyahoga County through its Transportation Improvement
Program.
                                                                                Columbus Road Lift Bridge

Like federal dollars, state matching dollars vary by program. The Ohio
Department of Transportation (ODOT) is the state agency that participates
in the local infrastructure process for roads and bridges. ODOT must
approve all federally funded projects. ODOT also provides the local
match for federally funded projects on state or interstate routes. ODOT’s
contribution of resources for the County Engineer’s five-year capital
improvement plan focuses Cuyahoga County Engineer predominately upon
state route bridge projects. The average participation by the State is 20% of
project costs.

ODOT’s Bridge Rehabilitation and Replacement Fund has proven to be an
invaluable resource for the County Engineer because construction costs for
federal bridge projects are usually matched at a rate of 80 percent federal,
20 percent local. The local match for bridge projects is provided through the
County Engineer’s revenue sources.

At a local level, the County Engineer works closely with municipalities,
assisting with the planning, financing and construction phase on many
                                                                                Miles Road Bridge
projects. Local governments provide matching funds for road and bridge
projects. Most often these funds are leveraged by county resources.
Collaboration with local municipalities is imperative because local
projects represent more than half of the County Engineer’s projects
during the next five years and allow the County to meet local and regional
infrastructure needs. Resources for the County Engineer’s portion of
capital improvements come from two major revenue sources. The first is
a $5 Motor Vehicle License Fee enacted in 1968. The second is a $7.50
Motor Vehicle Fee enacted in 1987 as a result of the growing need for
improvements in the transportation system. In 1987, the Board of County
Commissioners authorized a $10 increase in Motor Vehicle License Fees.
This increase is split between the County and municipalities, with $7.50 to
the County and $2.50 to municipalities.

     In 2007, the County Engineer oversaw more than $46 million in major
     capital improvements projects. It strategically invested in the rehabilitation
     and reconstruction of the existing transportation system as opposed to new
     construction projects.

NORTHEAST OHIO REGIONAL SEWER DISTRICT
Since its inception in 1972, the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (the
“District”) has made significant contributions to wastewater collection and
treatment, storm water management, and water quality issues throughout
Greater Cleveland. The District operates three major wastewater treatment
facilities – Easterly, Southerly and Westerly. Its service area encompasses the City
of Cleveland and 59 other communities in Cuyahoga and Summit counties. The
benefit the District provides the approximately one million persons it serves
extends beyond artificial community boundaries. It safely and efficiently returns
clean water to Lake Erie after proper wastewater treatment.

FUNDING

Over the years, the District has seen the availability of federal financing for
capital sewer improvement and wastewater treatment projects greatly diminish.
In the 1970s and 1980s, federal grants were a primary source for financing
capital projects and the District was very successful in obtaining these funds.
However, in 1990 the federal government discontinued its construction grants
program which fundamentally changed the way the District pursued future
financing of its capital projects. The District began placing greater emphasis
on obtaining loans from the federally capitalized, Ohio Clean Water State
Revolving Loan Program known as the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund
(WPCLF), which provides below-market rate loans. In addition to WPCLF
funds, the District utilizes internally generated funds and proceeds from the
sale of revenue bonds to finance capital projects. Nonetheless, capital project
financing continues to be a rather challenging endeavor that requires the District
to be both proactive in its pursuit of financing to meet capital expenditures and
strategic in the manner in which it allocates those funds. The District’s success in
achieving this balance is further magnified as the Ohio Environmental Protection
Agency established new provisions in 2007 that significantly limits allocation of
funds in the state. As a result of its limited borrowing capacity and the lack of
federally funded grants, the District expects it will need to increase the amount
of internally generated funds for its capital projects.




                                                                                       11
                                    CAPITAL PROJECTS

                                    In 2007, the District issued more than $126 million in Wastewater Improvement
                                    Revenue Bonds for the purpose of providing funds for the acquisition, construction, and
                                    improvement of water resource projects. By year’s end, the District had nearly $1.5
                                    billion invested in capital assets. The District’s most prominent construction project
                                    to date is the $200 million Mill Creek Tunnel, which is designed to reduce combined
                                    sewer overflows (CSOs) to the environment. The Mill Creek Tunnel, the District’s first
                                    large CSO project, is under construction and near completion. When complete the
                                    15,600 foot long tunnel will be capable of storing more than 70 million gallons of CSO
                                    volume annually. Twelve communities will benefit from the project as the tunnel relieves
                                    currently overloaded, combined storm and sanitary sewers. In addition, 13 of 27 outfalls
                                    now discharging to Lake Erie, the Cuyahoga River, Cranwood Creek and Wolf Creek
                                    will be eliminated upon its completion.

                                    The District did not issue any new revenue bonds for capital improvements in 2008 but
                                    it allocated more than $39 million for contracts for capital maintenance and equipment
                                    replacement.

                                    While bond financing is considered the secondary source of funding after it has
                                    exhausted other less expensive alternatives, the District also relies on fees to finance a
                                    considerable portion of its capital improvements. The most recent sewer rate increase,
                                    approved in 2007, is due to expire in 2011. The increase will generate about $200
                                    million in additional revenue over the five-year time period.

                                    schedule to design and construct a $2 billion CSO Long Term Control Plan (the “CSO
     -Bureau	of	Economic	Analysis   LTCP) to limit pollution caused by CSOs. The CSO LTCP calls for the construction of
                                    103 miles of tunnels and connecting sewers and is designed to substantially reduce CSO

LOOKING AHEAD . . . SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE

Over the years, the District has positioned itself to continue to meet the
level of service and regulatory requirements demanded by its customers,
its Board of Trustees and regulatory agencies. From 1995 to 2003, the
District performed facilities planning studies to develop a plan to further
reduce CSO throughout the service area to meet the mandates of the
federal CSO Policy. These studies resulted in plans to build storage
tunnels throughout the combined sewer service area, as well as smaller
consolidated sewers, storage tanks and other improvements.

The District has made substantial progress at improving its three
                                                                              Easterly Treatment Plant    Cataract Falls
wastewater treatment facilities. As the District’s service area has grown
and become more urbanized, there has been greater occurrence of
flooding, erosion and water quality problems. The District’s Stormwater
Management Program, scheduled to commence in 2009, will include
maintaining streams and large pipes that carry stormwater, continued
water-quality monitoring and expanding regional watershed planning
and floodplain management in its service area. To date, the District has
invested more than $2.2 billion on wastewater-related projects.

The District estimates that it will need to invest approximately $520
million in capital improvement projects over the next four years. It will
strategically invest in both regulatory driven capital improvements and
rehabilitation driven capital improvements at Easterly, Southerly, and
Westerly and within its collection system. With regard to regulatory          Southerly Treatment Plant
driven improvements, the District will allocate up to $168 million
toward related wet-weather plant improvements at Easterly and
Southerly. The District has identified an estimated $275 million of
renewal/replacement work for Southerly and Easterly, and an additional
$813 million is estimated over the next 10 years for collection system
rehabilitation and other treatment plant projects.

     the largest transit system in Ohio, serving more customers than the transit systems in     customers	per	week	
     Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton and Toledo combined.
                                                                                                -	eliminating	50,000	
     In 2007, mass transit experienced significant gains in ridership. Americans took           cars	from	roadways	
     10.3 billion trips using public transportation – the highest number since World War
     II. According to the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), “public             in	northeast	Ohio.
     transportation ridership in the US has grown by more than 32 percent, faster than
     highway travel or the U.S. population.” The RTA has experienced six consecutive years
     of steady ridership growth and provided an estimated 57.9 million rides in 2008. RTA’s
     success has not escaped national notice - the American Public Transportation Association
     has designated the RTA as the best transit system in North America.

     RTA’s commitment to provide a quality transportation service extends beyond providing
     good customer service. When RTA eliminates nearly 50,000 vehicles weekly from
     Greater Cleveland roadways, it makes substantial environmental contributions to the
     region. The transit authority has converted its entire fleet to clean diesel vehicles,
     purchased state-of-the-art hybrid vehicles, and incorporated improvements that utilized
     energy efficient design elements and landscaping at its station facilities. During 2007,
     RTA placed great emphasis on facility upgrades, bridge reconstruction, and fleet
     expansion. It authorized nearly $47 million in capital improvements in 2007. RTA’s top
     five capital improvement projects total more than $34 million and represent 75 percent
     of the year’s contracting total. Major construction projects are as follows:

                          In 2008, RTA opened its most significant capital
                          improvement project - the Euclid Corridor Transportation
                          Project (HealthLine). The HealthLine is the largest
                          infrastructure project in Cleveland history.
                          The 6.8 mile Bus-Rapid Transit system, located along Euclid
                          Avenue, will transport more than 22,000 riders a day and
                          provide valuable linkage between Greater Cleveland’s
                          top two employment hubs – downtown Cleveland and
                          University Circle.

                          In addition to improving public transportation service
                          along one of Cleveland’s busiest corridors, the HealthLine
                          will play an integral role in transforming the physical
                          and socioeconomic landscape of downtown Cleveland.
                          HealthLine shows that investment in public transportation
                          generates significant economic benefits. To date, the
                          HealthLine has spurred more than $4.3 billion in capital
                          investment along the Euclid Corridor.

                          RTA’S MAJOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

                          While the completion of the HealthLine was RTA’s top
                          priority in 2008, it has also engaged in a host of other
                          major construction projects that strongly solidified public
                          transportation’s vital role in the contribution of long-term
                          economic and community development benefits that are
                          destined to lead Greater Cleveland on path toward growth
                          and prosperity. RTA spent more than $26 million for capital
                          projects in 2008. Its investment in the HealthLine accounted
                          for more than 41% of that total. Additional projects:

CHALLENGES

Although RTA was experiencing historic ridership gains in 2007 and 2008, it
found itself trying to navigate a “Perfect Storm” in 2008 - increased ridership,
escalating fuel costs and insufficient funding. Since the majority of RTA funding
comes from local sources - farebox revenue and a 1% local sales tax – its larger
capital improvement projects require substantial federal investment. Recent
studies conducted by the Ohio Public Transit Association show there is an
unmet need for $30 million annually to maintain and improve performance
of the state’s transit systems. With an unsolicited designation as the nation’s
fourth poorest big city, Cleveland is in dire need of funds that will create jobs,
stimulate economic activity, and generate additional tax revenues for the city.
                                                                                     Downtown Trolley
The impact of reduced driving – and thus reduced federal gasoline tax
revenues – has had a significant impact on the State of Ohio. While nearly all
state funding for transit originates as General Revenue Funds, no gasoline
revenues can go to public transit. In 2008, high diesel fuel costs and reduced
funding placed RTA in an extremely compromised financial state. RTA
expenses for diesel fuel have increased from $4 million in 2004 to $21
million in 2008. In 2008, the transit agency was faced with the decision of
having to cut services, increase fares, defer capital projects and postpone the
replacement of buses.

Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating
Agency (NOACA) provided a one-time infusion of funds and RTA
implemented a modified fuel surcharge and service reduction in November              Euclid Corridor                W. 65th Street Rapid Station
2008 to keep the transit authority’s fiscal year 2009 budget solvent.

LOOKING AHEAD . . . CAPITAL PROJECTS

RTA’s five-year Capital Improvement Plan (2008-2012) serves as a blueprint
for assessing the future transit needs of the region and exploring strategies
to redefine transit policy. The five-year capital plan calls for the investment
of more than $443 million in capital improvements. RTA will allocate funds
toward the acquisition, construction, replacement, repair and renovation
of major capital facilities, vehicles and equipment. Significant capital
improvements planned for the five-year period include: rail projects, local
capital projects, bridge rehabilitation and other improvements, bus purchases,
paratransit vehicles and circulator buses, transit centers and shelters, Euclid      HealthLine Bus
Corridor Transportation Project, equipment and non revenue vehicles, and
operating expenses and other expenses. RTA plays a vital role in the resurgence
of Cleveland as a hub for economic prosperity. Its sustained investment in
transportation infrastructure encourages new development, supports existing
business, promotes the creation of sustainable communities, and improves the
quality of life of Greater Clevelanders.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) maintains all state and federal
roadways in the state of Ohio with the exception of the Ohio Turnpike. ODOT is
divided into 12 regional districts. Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties are within
District 12. ODOT’s District 12 is responsible for the planning, design, construction
and maintenance of Interstate Routes and State and U.S. Routes within Cuyahoga,
Geauga and Lake counties.

In existence for more than 100 years, ODOT’s new mission reflects a greater emphasis
on a multi-modal approach to modernizing the state’s transportation system. Its               Each	dollar	
transformative shift is best illustrated by its commitment to strategically reinvest in
its current inventory. District 12 oversaw more than $260 million worth of capital        invested	in	highway	
improvements in 2007 and 2008. More than 70 percent ($183 million) of that work was
allocated toward road and bridge improvements in Cuyahoga County (see appendix).

Construction activity in Cuyahoga County accounted for 99 percent of District 12
projects in 2008. The major reconstruction in Cuyahoga County at a cost of $90 million
represented ODOT’s largest allocation of funds accounting for 70% of the total.

ODOT’s 2008-2009 construction season was by many accounts an “historic” feat.
ODOT managed $2.5 billion in construction contract awards, which is the largest
amount ever awarded over an 18-month period in its 100 years of existence. The
capital investment consists of the commencement of nearly 1,000 construction projects
across Ohio - 80 Interstate construction projects totaling approximately $605 million
and 823 paving and rehabilitation projects on state and U.S. routes totaling more than
$1.1 billion. The scope of ODOT’s 2008-2009 investment in Cuyahoga County will
encompass 175 capital improvement projects totaling more than $281 million. While
