We had our first meeting with City officials to discuss plans for Phase Two of the Wasson Way. The initial plan is for a wide 15'+ trail across the I-71 bridge. Phase Two is being broken into two sections to align with currently available funding-Tamarack to Floral and then Floral to Montgomery Road.
Started a small remodel project on my 1928 house, converting part of the attic into a closet & found an old crumpled up newspaper, under the insulation. It is dated exactly 60 years ago today; August 29, 1957. Among one of the more interesting articles was this… An invitation to the CG&E lobby to peek at new kitchen technology. Highlighted is a "Bubble, where miracles occur. The manufacturer calls it 'high' frequency electronic cooking--the user can see the roast, chops, etc. as they sizzle in a matter of minutes".
Today, we take it for granted as our microwave oven.
AUG 16; PUBLIC MEETING:
City of Cincinnati CRA Tax Abatement Program
The City is holding a public meeting to discuss the potential for improvements to the Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) Tax Abatement Program - an important incentive tool used to spur residential and commercial development throughout all neighborhoods.
While typically the domain of brokers and developers, the City recognizes the impact that the CRA has had on neighborhood development patterns and is engaging the Community Councils in an effort to bring public voices to the table.
They are asking that delegations be limited to 2 persons max (due to space limitations) and that you RSVP to Marc Von Allmen (email@example.com) if you are planning to attend.
Please do not miss this opportunity for public input on this critical neighborhood development financing process.
What: Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) Tax Abatement Public Meeting
When: Wednesday, August 16th from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Where: Two Centennial Plaza
805 Central Avenue, Suite 700
Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
Who: Cincinnati Community Councils (Please keep representation to 1-2 attendees)

Sent request to city of Cincinnati to get cutting and landscape crew outside of Avon Fields golf course from Reading down Paddock Rd. Looks like this area has been forgotten and is overgrown with bushes, debris and tall grass. Unsafe hazard. It has been two weeks and nothing done. Called CRC maintenance Friday morning. Let's see if this gets the bushes cut back so residents of Paddock Hills can walk without getting glass in shoes and his in face with bushes. ... See MoreSee Less
What a great way to dress up an otherwise ugly eyesore in our neighborhood; the old N/S rail overpass on Reading, just north of Avon. It could make such an amazing entrance to Paddock Hills... ... See MoreSee Less
Very thankful to all the volunteers helping me transfer a 114' long history of Madisonville mural onto a wall in my home neighborhood. This is a cool project is being funded by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful and it has been in the works for nearly 3 years! We will be having a public painting day on July 8th, excited that the residents and any others can help create a piece of pride for our neighborhood!
In catching up with Michael Moore, the night before the Neighborhood Summit, he confirmed that WW will indeed come to Paddock Hills, likely along Victory Pkwy via land The City already owns. However, chances are it will not be for several years. They are working on the main "artery" of the bike trail first, then building the connecting trails. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to the members of the WW Board for all the hours they volunteer to the WW ! We are so excited about the future !
