For those of you in Cincinnati, you’ve got a great opportunity to geek out on transportation and urban design visions tomorrow night. I’ll be serving as Mistress of Ceremonies for a presentation/discussion/cocktail party (yes!) to explore ideas for reinmagining Price Hill’s historic incline, which transported Cincinnati’ streetcars from the downtown basin up the steep hillside to Cincinnati’s western neighborhoods. Even though the incline itself is long gone, three imaginative designers have come up with visions of how that hillside and others could be reused — ranging from creating lighting of the architectural remains to a full-blown gondola.
We’ll hear from the three young designers behind these concepts, and then we’ll discuss the Price Hill Incline site’s potential — not just for transportation, but for a distinctive identity, creative placemaking and economic development catalysts. We’ll also have opportunities for you to share your wild ideas… with a little prize, to boot. 🙂
Lights on the Hill starts at 6 PM in the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater in East Price Hill. You can learn more about a few of the concepts and the story behind the ideas in this article, and you can get more details on the event here. Bring your thinking cap, your good ideas and your readiness to have fun, and I’ll see you there!
