OTR Plan. Where did she fill her shopping bag? Great 'toon. Let's see here: SAT tests, bus schedules, geography lession, (what's mcyd's?), by the way you can ride the bus to all those places except the golf course and, maybe, mcyd's, weather, fashion, toxicity, manufacturing, social comment and graphics. Didn't cover all the topics but certainly have a variety.

Thanks, Jim.

Lets hope the residents of OTR have a enough sense to band together and agree not to harm the new incoming residents.

Kind of like when Purcell High School choose NOT to relocate to the Regina High School in Norwood in 1977. Then Archbishop Bernadine said "We can not leave the inner city". Of course the move to the Norwood location would have been in a much safer neighborhood.

But do you think the residents of Walnut Hills got together and said "lets leave these kids alone, after all they could have moved the school, but decided to stay here". NO THEY DID NOT. The neighborhood is unsafe and students from Purcell-Marian have been mugged by the neighborhood thugs.

Some of the Black Leaders in Cincinnati need to get down to OTR and work with those people and see that the transformation of the neighborhood is handled well.

We are all in this together.

if this isn't a scene from 1940, it must be from 3040. prove me wrong, cincinnati, you slow-ass town.

Never going to happen.

What are the plans for the current residents of OTR when their homes are deemed too unattractive and their rents are raised? They are already suffering from what the city sees as the 'unsightliness' of their poverty - anyone hear about Washington UCC in Camp Washington being cited for feeding the hungry, just because they did it in eyesight of the tourists visiting Music Hall? You can't just shuffle an entire demographic under the rug to make things pretty again - actual revitalization means finding a way to deal with poverty, not just mask it.

It's funny I remember hearing all these OTR gentrification comments 15 years ago.

Maybe those Purcell kids should transfer over to Walnut Hills. I never had any trouble with the locals in the 6 years I went there.

5040 (there's reverse discrimination in Atlanta before there's "equality" in Cincinnati)
