University of Cincinnati graduate student Nate Wessel spent six months painstakingly mapping out bike paths in Greater Cincinnati and everything in between including bike shops, public transportation hubs, water fountains and grocery stores. He also has illustrated the changes in elevation.
The glossy new map is being distributed free at local coffee shops and bike stores around the city. It is also viewable online.
Hamilton County Commissioners will vote Wednesday on a financing plan for repairing Union Terminal.
The plan lays out a public/private partnership and is contingent on voters approving Issue 8, a quarter cent sales tax increase, in November.

A Cincinnati Council committee will likely vote in two weeks to double the amount of money the city provides for human services funding. But it will also change the priorities for how those dollars are spent.

The United Way manages the city's human services program, and Sonya Turner with the agency addressed the committee Monday.
