Public View Overlay Ordinance Vote delayed…

Cincinnati City Council’s Committee on Livable Communities decided on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 to delay a vote on the pending Public View Overlay Ordinance.  Citing concerns and confusion about the language and reach of the Ordinance, voiced by several developers and property owners, the Committee requested that the City Planning Department address these issues so that a more informed vote could ultimately take place.  Vice mayor, Roxanne Qualls, Chair of the Committee, promised that a vote would take place in January of 2013, once these issues had been examined more carefully.

Message from the Director

From the time I was a young child, I have always enjoyed our hillsides. Whether it was feeling their imposing grandeur as they tower over the Ohio River and downtown basin, or taking in distant views from their commanding overlooks, I believe the hillsides are a dramatic part of our landscape. It is my sincere pleasure to serve an organization like The Hillside Trust that advocates the thoughtful use and preservation of this wonderful natural feature.
