Renewed push for skywalk at Cleveland casino

CLEVELAND - The landlord of Cleveland's downtown casino is again trying to clear the way for a skywalk between the facility and its parking garage.
  
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Forest City Enterprises will make its case for the 170-foot glass skywalk at a Nov. 15 hearing with a National Park Service appeals officer.
  
The company will ask that the agency to overturn its decision rejecting a bridge to the second floor of the casino.
  
The casino is inside the former Higbee store on Public Square and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
  
The skywalk could move forward without the agency's approval, and needs only a building permit from Mayor Frank Jackson's administration. But going that route would force Forest City to forfeit tax credits for the project.
