Two Cincinnati council members say they have a funding plan to renovate a Mt. Auburn park and improve pedestrian access along Auburn Avenue.  

Charlie Winburn and Chris Seelbach introduced a motion Monday to invest $9 million during the next two years for the projects.  

Seelbach said the city's investment will bring an additional $100 million in private investment nearby.

At 2038 Auburn Avenue stands the two-story Greek Revival house where William Howard Taft was born and grew up. Now designated the William Howard Taft National Historic Site, it is the only memorial to the nation's 27th President and 10th Chief Justice. The site, consisting of the Taft House and Education Center, is managed by the U.S. Park Service. Park Ranger Kerry Wood tells us about the historic site and a bit about our 27th president.
