The Group Plan of 1903In August 1903, architects Daniel H. Burnham, John M. Carr?re, and Arnold W. Brunner presented Mayor Tom L. Johnson and the City of Cleveland a plan that epitomized the City Beautiful Movement in America. The Group Plan envisioned a grand landscaped mall surrounded by public buildings in the Beaux-Arts style. The plan would create a monumental civic center, influence the design of buildings throughout the city, and lay the foundation for a city planning commission. The first of its kind in the nation, the Group Plan, as built, was the most completely realized of Burnham's city planning efforts. In its green space and architecture, the Mall remains an enduring and vital element of Cleveland's civic culture.
