Episode #14: Price Hill Will

Outside of those that live there, it doesn’t seem that many Cincinnatians know much about the city’s west side. This week on The UrbanCincy Podcast, Ken Smith and Matt Strauss, from Price Hill Will, join us in studio to discuss the past, present and future of Cincinnati’s west side neighborhoods.

380093280924On the fourteenth episode of The UrbanCincy Podcast, we’re joined by Ken Smith and Matt Strauss of Price Hill Will.

We discuss Price Hill Will’s approach of using the neighborhood’s existing assets as the foundation for improvement. The organization’s efforts range from community action teams–which focus on the arts, the environment, and other community issues–to economic development and housing redevelopment initiatives.

We also discuss how the built environment of Cincinnati’s west side has changed over the years, and why former Price Hill residents often remain involved in the neighborhood.
