Rap sessons about Over-the-Rhine development
Here's a PSA you might want to know about: The Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC) is holding public discussions about the future of the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. Three meetings, called "Over-the-Rhine Rap Sessions," will begin tomorrow (Thursday) in Memorial Hall, and continue Nov. 2 and Nov. 16.
The first meeting will provide an overview of 3CDC's development plans for the neighborhood, as well as an update of the progress made. Organizers say they plan to engage participants in small group discussions, which will then be transcribed and posted on their Web site, www.3cdc.org.
"These meetings will give us a chance to share our thinking and listen to and understand the perspective of OTR residents," Darrick Dansby, 3CDC director of development for Over-the-Rhine said in a statement.
The Nov. 2 session will unveil designs for Music Hall Square, a new, mixed-use development (including a parking garage and Public Plaza) planned for the property adjacent to Music Hall.
The Nov. 16 session will update the public on the neighborhood school and plans for Washington Park. Participants will be invited to make recommendations for design and usage of a new, expanded Washington Park.
The rap sessions are 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall, and are free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.3cdc.org/otrrapsessions.
