On the 17th episode of The UrbanCincy Podcast, we’re joined by Kevin Wright, Executive Director of the Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation.

We discuss the neighborhood’s history and how various changes have impacted Walnut Hills over the years. Kevin explains how the new direction taken by the Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation has resulted already in positive changes, such as the Buy 25 program, the two-way conversion of Taft and McMillan Streets, and several buildings that are being preserved and restored by WHRF.

Kevin explains how Walnut Hills will benefit from younger generations that want a single-family home close to the urban core. Finally, we discuss how the casino, a new I-71 interchange, and other projects around Uptown would affect Walnut Hills.
