The City of Cincinnati is continually making investments in its neighborhoods. Below are just some of the projects around Cincinnati.

WESTWOOD: District 3 Police Headquarters
WESTWOOD: District 3 Police Headquarters

The City of Cincinnati is building its first new police station in more than 20 years along Ferguson Road in Westwood. The new facility's location is the result of community outreach meetings held by the City, and that engagement will continue as the design is finalized and the building constructed. The new station will serve the 14 neighborhoods of Police District 3 on the city's West Side, and it is consistent with Plan Cincinnati (the City’s comprehensive plan) because it is located within one of the places where the community envisions main streets of civic life surrounded by residential areas. The Administrations expects that this new district headquarters can play a role in driving additional development and helping to redefine the surrounding built environment.

TOTAL INVESTMENT: $16 MILLION

ESTIMATED COMPLETION: SPRING 2015

EVANSTON: St. Leger Demolition & Redevelopment

Demolition of the crime-ridden St. Leger apartments in Evanston brought tangible progress to that neighborhood in July 2013. The demolition was part of the Moving Ohio Forward program, working together with the City’s continuing efforts to revitalize neighborhoods by removing blighted and dangerous properties. A new development slated for the site, named the St. Ambrose  Apartments after the Patron Saint of Learning, honors Evanston’s reputation as the educating community. St. Ambrose Apartments will consist of 26 new townhouses and flats, with one-, two- and three-bedroom units, which will be affordable to families. St. Ambrose Apartments will also be LEED certified, ensuring lower utility bills through energy-efficient systems, and healthier indoor air quality.
