Photos: Jordan Crossing, Mill Creek flowers, Camp Washington

The following photos were taken between June 14 and June 23.

The first photos were taken before the Community Development Corporations Association of Greater Cincinnati 2012 Annual Awards Celebration, held at the Cincinnati-Hamilton Community Action Agency in Bond Hill, right next to the Jordan Crossing Center (former Swifton Commons).

The middle set of flower photos were taken along the Mill Creek Greenway Trail during its ribbon-cutting ceremony and the announcement that the Mill Creek Restoration Project has changed its name to Groundwork Cincinnati/Mill Creek.

Finally, the Camp Washington photos come from the grand opening of the American Sign Museum and a stroll around the neighborhood to check out the blighted Crosley Building and the Kahn's/Sara Lee redevelopment site.

These 27 photos have been added to the following galleries:
