The Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition is claiming victory over what it called "special signs" erected at Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine. Three people living near the park filed suit September 4th. Coalition Executive Director Josh Spring says the Cincinnati Park Board voted today to strike down Park Rule 28, which he says allowed the board to post a sign in any park with any special rules that would be enforced like law.
Three Cincinnati residents who live near Washington Park are filing a federal civil rights suit against the city's park board and parks director over rules for the park. The suit by Jerry Davis, Andrew Fitzpatrick, and Agnes Brown says the rules were created in an unconstitutional fashion that discriminates against certain classes of people.
Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition executive director Josh Spring says the Washington Park rules are different from the ones in other city parks:
Washington Park holds its first Cincinnati AVP Open this Labor Day Weekend. This year, Olympic beach volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh will join other Olympians as they compete to make it to the championship in Santa Barbara, CA next week.
Sports insiders are interested to find out if this tournament will reveal Walsh’s new partner. Nicole Banagh is the current favorite to take the place of Misty May-Treanor.
