Working in Neighborhoods to purchase College Hill property

Cincinnati City Council has approved unanimously an ordinance allowing the sale of surplus College Hill property to Working In Neighborhoods (WIN).

WIN will purchase the property, at 1208 Cedar Avenue, for $1,000 through the Cincinnati Land Reutilization Program (CLRP).

The 0.14-acre lot is located between two WIN-owned properties and adjacent to the construction site of a new energy-efficient (and possibly LEED-certified), single-family house.

WIN plans to add the parcel to the property at 1304 Cedar Avenue to create a larger lot.

CLRP, established by council in 1996 to return abandoned property to tax-generating use, is managed by the Department of City Planning.

The program has acquired approximately 68 parcels of land since its inception.
