Today the Board of Directors of the Uptown Consortium and the Neighborhoods of Uptown (NOU) will formally announce their endorsement of the Cincinnati Streetcar project at a press conference.
The groups cite the streetcar project’s dedication to the development and revitalization of Uptown communities as the impetus behind their endorsement. Both the Uptown Consortium and NOU recognize the importance the Cincinnati streetcar could play in connecting Cincinnati landmarks with the neighborhoods – Avondale, Clifton, Clifton Heights, Corryville, Fairview, Mt. Auburn and University Heights – collectively known as Uptown. Uptown is home to some of the city’s largest employers, including the University of Cincinnati, Tri-Health, Health Alliance, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, making it an ideal location for further economic development.
