LISC workshop to explore developing sustainable communities

As Cincinnati continues the development of a form-based code, an interactive workshop being held this evening will further explore how buildings and the places between them can improve the quality of life for everyone.

"Greening Our Neighborhoods: A Community Conversation", taking place from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M. at the Madisonville Recreation Center, located at 5320 Stewart Road, will present a variety of place-based tools that support sustainable development and community revitalization.

The workshop will be hosted by the Local Initiatives Support Corporation's Green Development Center, an organization dedicated to implementing comprehensive green development strategies in low-income neighborhoods nationwide.
