What do you want to see on Linn Street?

Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses is partnering with students from the University of Cincinnati to collect feedback from West End residents about what improvements they’d like to see on Linn Street. What types of businesses do you want to see? How can we improve safety and promote walkability? What are your ideas for beautification? Linn Street was selected to receive $6.2 Million in federal funds (WVXU) in order to redesign a major section of the West End Business District, and beyond. While formal designs are already in the works, this feedback will help us continue to advocate for community based change as the project moves forward.

Please join us on Wednesday, March 5th from 11:30 AM to approximately 2:30 PM at the Tot-Lot at the corner of Findlay and Linn Street for a West End cook out and share your suggestions! Responses will be collected by UC students and shared with the community and redevelopment project stakeholders.

Unable to make the cook-out? Take the online survey and give your input HERE!
