Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated Sanders would physically be in Cincinnati. He will, in fact, be live-streaming the event to multiple venues nationwide.

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley's veto of the Over-the-Rhine residential parking permit program will stand.  

City Council did not have the six votes needed Wednesday to override it, and it was Council's last opportunity to act.

A former 19th century Over-the-Rhine church is getting a new life as an entertainment center. The former St. John's Evangelical Protestant Church at Twelfth and Elm will become the Transept. 

"The Transept will be a private event space and public bar," said co-owner Josh Heuser. "The bar will be in the southwest corner.  The bar will be open seven days a week with four private event spaces." 

It is back to the drawing board for a proposal to bring residential parking permits to parts of Over-the-Rhine.  Council rejected the ordinance Wednesday.  

Four members voted yes, and three voted no.  It takes five "yes's" to approve such a measure, and two members were absent.

The full Cincinnati Council will likely vote Wednesday to let a residential parking permit program move forward in parts of Over-the-Rhine.  The Neighborhoods Committee approved the proposal Monday.

Transportation and Engineering Director Michael Moore described how it will be implemented.

A Cincinnati Council committee could vote in two weeks on a plan to set up a residential parking permit program in parts of the Over-the-Rhine.  

Legislation to enact the proposal could be ready by the end of this week for the Neighborhoods Committee to consider.  

The area for the program would be bounded by Central Parkway on the west and south; Sycamore on the east and Liberty on the north.  

Transportation and Engineering Director Michael Moore said some residents want to know why it does not go north of Liberty.

Cincinnati officials are continuing work on a plan to bring residential parking permits to the city's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.  

Council's Neighborhoods Committee heard Tuesday about the latest proposal.  

One change is the price.  The original plan called for the permits to cost $300 a year.  That has now been reduced to $108 annually.  There would also be a lower rate of $18 a year for people in rent subsidized housing.  

Mary Rivers with Over-the-Rhine Community Housing says she's still concerned with that part.

Cincinnati officials are still working to fine tune a proposal that could make changes to how residents and patrons park in the city's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.  

For residents it could mean buying a residential parking permit and right now that has a proposed fee of $300 a year.  

Resident Julie Faye spoke about the plan Monday a Council committee meeting.

Cincinnati council's budget and finance committee voted today (Monday) to give control of 35 properties in Over-the-Rhine, mostly north of Liberty Street, to the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation for re-development.

The Over-the-Rhine Community Council opposed giving control of the properties to the organization, also known as 3CDC. The council argued that 3CDC already has too much control over development in Over-the-Rhine.
