  1. Does anyone have info on when the Lytle Park portion of this project is supposed to be completed and reopened?
  2. Another downtown/Main St apartment building without dedicated parking...
  3. This has already been approved by the East Walnut Hills Assembly (neighborhood council) and they've approved the use of TIF funds to pay for the planning documents. Once planning docs are done and more accurate costs are known a negotiation with the city will ensue to determine how to pay for the conversion itself. City DOTE is on board.
  4. Sugar 'N Spice should kill at that location. Only gripe is the 7a-3p schedule. Tack on a 10p-2a on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
  5. You can see the most recent renderings at the end of this packet: https://eastwalnuthills.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/EWHA-April-Assembly-Minutes-2019-Website.pdf
  6. The vote won't count and it's all for show for Smitherman to keep getting news cycles out of this story. The Charter is clear that a majority of council has to vote in favor of something in order for it to pass; not a majority of those voting. Therefore, with only four councilmembers even able to vote this thing won't pass. Furthermore, it is a motion, not an ordinance, and a motion carries no legal weight to compel anybody to do anything. Again, it's a show. Smitherman should try to do good work for the city rather than bring down his fellow councilmembers.
  7. How do you find the permit application that shows the 75,000 sqft commercial building info?
  8. New renderings for the Anthem site development are in the back of this packet: https://eastwalnuthills.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/EWHA-April-Assembly-Minutes-2019-Website.pdf New tentative timeline is a December groundbreaking.
  9. There's a new (as of 4/25/2019) permit that has been submitted, though not approved, for the Millenium for alterations - not demolition. Could certainly be to address some of the code violations at the Bronze Ballroom the city hit them with.
  10. That was a joke of a "task force" anyway. That's committee work that can be, and will be, done in committee. Amy already is the chair of the Economic and Growth committee. If she didn't need a "task force" for the streetcar project she "managed" from committee then she doesn't need one for the Millenium. Besides, that's what we have paid, professional economic development staff for.
  11. When DOTE came to speak with the East Walnut Hills Assembly about converting Taft and McMillan to two-way in the neighborhood they specifically said they wouldn't be converting Calhoun and McMillan in near campus because of the number of cars using it. That most of them get on/off the highway is why the rest of McMillan/Taft could get converted.
  12. What's the point of attending that meeting if Council is going to be voting on a motion instructing the administration to follow through with the 5-lane option? What's the point of the city paying DOTE staff to attend this meeting? What a farce.
  13. The Planning Commission will vote on the historic designation, however it goes to City Council whether the Planning Commission approves of the designation or not. If Planning does not approve of the designation then City Council has to muster six votes to affirm the designation. If the Planning Commission does approve of the designation then only five Council members are needed to affirm the designation.
  14. This is by far the best option and plan for a new arena in Cincinnati.
  15. Biggest difference with this project, I believe, is that U-Square was owned by CHURC in search of a developer (I think they had an agreement with Towne that fell through at the downturn?) while Deaconess is already under control of a developer.
