Price Hill

The documentary OYLER: One School One Year follows Craig Hockenberry, the school’'s principal when the film was produced, through a year at the school, focusing on Hockenberry's mission to transform a community battered by crime and poverty, and on then-senior Raven Gribbins’ quest to become the first in her family to finish high school and go to college.

  One of Cincinnati’'s oldest neighborhoods, Price Hill, was once praised as the city'’s most popular and distinctive suburb. Commonly divided into East Price Hill, West Price Hill, and Lower Price Hill, the area covers over 6 square miles. Like many neighborhoods, Price Hill has experienced its ups and downs, but its residents are proactive in targeting problems and working together to make their community a better place to live.

A new art gallery has opened in Price Hill, part of the burgeoning arts community in one of Cincinnati’s oldest neighborhoods. To talk about Gallery@3506 and other cultural developments in Price Hill, Jane Durrell is joined by Pamela Taylor, community outreach coordinator for Price Hill Will.

Price Hill Will has been working hard to create a more vibrant and livable neighborhood on Cincinnati’s westside. They recently award grants to five cultural events, so in the studio with Barbara Gray are Diana Vakharia from Price Hill Will and community activist Mike Moroski to talk about these events and other community activities.

Cincinnati Police didn't have too far to go to begin round one of a crackdown targeting gang members allegedly dealing drugs and guns in East Price Hill.

The SWAT team executed a search warrant at 3216 Warsaw, diagonal from District Three Police Headquarters, where two shootings happened last weekend. That was just the beginning.

By 2:00 Tuesday police say they had arrested 14 of the 29 people wanted.  One involved a car chase into Kentucky.

The numbers point to a safer Cincinnati, but the perception for many is that some neighborhoods still aren't. Just today District Three Police Captain Dan Gerard took members of the Board of Realtors on a tour of Price Hill, where crime is at its lowest in ten years.

The operator of transitional housing units for recovering drug and alcohol addicts will likely head to federal court to keep the city from shutting down its facilities in Price Hill.  

A spokesman for New Foundations Transitional Living said the group expects to file a lawsuit this week.  

The city said the seven houses violate the city's zoning code and a city press release said officials took action after complaints from neighbors.
