Located on Lake Erie, the Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor (Ohio) Metro Area is a 5 county area in north Ohio, anchored by the city of Cleveland. Dividing the city into an east side and west side, the Cuyahoga River area was once the site of steel mills and other factories which fueled economic growth.
Changing economic times led to a decline in the manufacturing economy. For the past thirty years, the overall population of the Metro Area has been in decline as Non-Hispanic whites left the area to seek new opportunities. However, Cleveland is both the most ethnically diverse region in Ohio and is growing increasingly diverse as Hispanic and Asian populations move into the area. There is an increasing belief that Cleveland can grow by attracting, welcoming, and retaining immigrants from all over the world.
