People’s Liberty, for the second year in a row, is taking applications this month for two Haile Fellows. They are awarded $100,000 each to improve the city. One of last year’s grantees is using the money to build two tiny houses in Over-the-Rhine. They are fewer than 300 square feet — about the size of some master bedrooms — and are meant to increase affordable living, but are quite a change from the norm.
A large mixed-use development opening next month in Butler County is likely to bring customers from all over the region. The $350 million Liberty Center is located at the 1-75 and State Route 129 interchange.
