Urban Planning & Public Space

Dear Cincinnati,

I am new to Cincinnati. There is a great deal of wealth in the metropolitan area, which leads me to the question: Why is this City just now engaged in a "renaissance"? And if this is the rebirth, what kind of shit hole has it been for the last 150 years since the City peaked? Get it together people. Quit hoarding your treasure and invest in a vision, or get out of the way of those who would instill some pride of place.

People & Diversity

Dear Cincinnati,

Drop the provincial attitudes, already! You're a great city with so many positives. Don't be afraid to let other people know it... but also don't be afraid of not being perfect. You're not. Nowhere is. That's okay.

Transportation

Dear Cincinnati,

Please respect cyclists. Contrary to your beliefs, we do not belong on the sidewalk. We have every right to be on the road as you do. The honking, buzzing, yelling, and general harassment needs to stop. Thanks to you, I quit cycling. You're welcome.

Transportation

Dear Cincinnati,

It would be nice to get some better transit throughout the urban core and suburbs. Maybe you could even use and expand that abandoned subway from the 1920s?

Urban Planning & Public Space

Dear Cincinnati,

I love how you are working on lots of new parks along the riverfront and greenways into the suburbs! Once they are finished, the city will reconnect with the river and be a better and more beautiful place.

Transportation

Dear Cincinnati,

Can we please get a Streetcar to Uptown? I know that the first section is still under construction, but those of us at UC and the hospitals feel a need for better transportation options to/from Downtown and the attractions there.

People & Diversity

Dear Cincinnati,

Although I've moved, no matter where I go, I'm never ashamed to call you home.

Arts & Culture

Dear Cincinnati,

You have so many cultural amenities for a city your size, and a beautiful setting. It would be lovely if you could take advantage of that and let the young people know that you are a great place to live and work and play. Over-the-Rhine is a start, but you should also work on making the other historic city neighborhoods more attractive, livable areas.
