East Copley

District Info

The East Copley neighborhood is in close proximity to Akron’s historic Simon Perkins Mansion, the John Brown house, Perkins Park and the Akron Zoo. This portion of Copley Road is ideally suited for new development to serve the surrounding neighborhood.

Renovation and Plans

This is an attractive section of Copley Road that has struggled to retain businesses. This disinvestment has resulted in numerous vacant lots that offer the opportunity for revitalization. The Copley Road corridor receives a great deal of pass thru traffic making it a great opportunity for investment.
