Zoo can share parking

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden will be able to lease parking spaces to surrounding institutions, thanks to a notwithstanding ordinance granted by Cincinnati City Council.

Shared parking was not allowed within the 22.2 acres, which are zoned for residential and recreational use.

The parking lots are located on both sides of Vine Street, and along Dury and Erkenbrecher avenues.

Despite a request, 64 additional acres of zoo property were not included in the ordinance.
