Every community in the City of Cincinnati will be targeted for roadwork on a three-year rotation under the Street Rehab Program.
TOTAL INVESTMENT: $11.5 MILLION

- WESTWOOD: Fire Station No. 35
The new fire station will provide better access and enhanced fire protection services to Westwood and will be completed in the fall of 2013.

Made possible through Community Development's Neighborhood Stabilization Program and the efforts of neighborhood groups like Price Hill Will and lenders like Fifth Third Bank, The Elberon is a completely renovated, LEED-certified, 37-unit senior apartment building in Cincinnati's Price Hill neighborhood.

- CITYWIDE: Moving Ohio Forward
As part of its settlement with large mortgage companies, the State of Ohio is providing the City with nearly $3.5 million to remove vacant, blighted structures and make way for new development.
The Department of Community Development is working closely with neighborhoods to identify properties suffering from the worst deterioration. Once demolition has taken place, lots are available to next-door neighbors who might want a bit more space, community councils for small pockets of greenspace or community gardens, or developers for construction.
TOTAL INVESTMENT: $7 MILLION
