Re: Why hasn't Cincinnati grown as a city?
I feel the reason the "City" of Cincinnati has not grown is due to the disfunctional City Council. Throw in a Mayor who spends more town out of town than in it and you have a recipe for disaster. When you also consider that City officials only control half of what goes on, while the other half is determined by Hamilton County who the City officials don't like.
Over the Rhine may have turned the corner, the Banks is up and running, there are finally some reasons to be downtown and they bicker about a Streetcar that goes up a hill and comes right back down again.
