The city is partnering with Nextdoor.  

The website has been operating since October 2011 and has about 16,000 neighborhoods represented nationwide.

Communications Director Kelsey Grady said Nextdoor is a private social network that allows neighbors to connect.

Jul 11, 2013

  Form Based Code is a different way to look at neighborhood planning and zoning that focuses on the physical character of buildings, the relationship of buildings to each other, and to the street. Jay Hanselman talks with Vice-Mayor Roxanne Qualls about how this new method of zoning will shape Cincinnati Neighborhoods.

Cincinnati officials are continuing their efforts to acquire about 5 miles of unused railroad track running through portions of Avondale, Evanston, Hyde Park, Oakley and Mt. Lookout.

The city is interested in a section of the Wasson Way line running from Victory Parkway to the west and Red Bank Road on the east.  

Norfolk Southern currently owns the railroad track, but it hasn't been used since 2009.  

Transportation and Engineering Director Michael Moore said getting it for the city involves a somewhat lengthy process.
