Check, one, two. Hey is this thing on?
Well hello there! It’s been a year, what did we miss?
All kidding aside much has happened over the past year. While our team was alive and well, doing what we do, the site crashed. We can discuss how much effort we had to put into restoring the site from the archive but the long and short of it is that the back end server and hosting needed to be rebuilt almost entirely.
Thank you, Travis, for all your hard work!
In lieu of a broader update, we have decided to focus on catching up on some of the major developments in Cincinnati over the past year. Here’s a brief review of news from 2019 and early 2020:
- Liberty Street Road Diet Modified, Now Under Construction
- Court Street Pedestrian Redesign Unveiled
- Kroger Returns Downtown with Court and Walnut Store
- Regional Transit Tax Decision Soon
- Residential Development Downtown Takes Off
- Some Downtown Hotel Developments Move Forward Despite Pandemic
- Convention Hotel and Expansion Await Decisions
Of course, we would be remiss to not mention the current COVID-19 crisis. We will continue to track its impacts on urbanism in Cincinnati and beyond. This Friday, the city will close 15 street sections in downtown and Over-the-Rhine to allow for expanded outdoor dining. Other areas may follow.
With the site back, we hope to become a public platform for urban thought in Cincinnati. With most of us now working full-time, we have less time to devote to the site. With that in mind, if you, our reader have an article you would like to submit or an opinion piece, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
