Question, is the playground area open to the public?  I know school kids were able to check it out but wasn't sure if that was restricted access or not.

Has anyone tried walking in from the neighborhood on weekends?

Nothing is open right now.  Not saying you couldn't sneak in for a look, but officially there is no access and it is generally patrolled by security.

Are you talking about the Gathering Place or the neighborhood that doesn't want people walking by?  Grin

Man, the way that sidewalk issue was handled by that small group did not reflect well on the neighborhood overall.
For the record, I went to one of the large public meetings on that, and argued (against some of my Neighbors) FOR the sidewalk. 

Down here on the South end (the low-rent "Sunset Terrace" part of Maple Ridge, South of Hazel),  it's really nice how they have done 31st between Peoria and Riverside.  The dedicated bike lanes are very nice. 

I will say though, that petty theft and car break-ins have skyrocketed in the last year or so.  It seems just about every day there are more thefts reported.  Just last week, my neighbor's small trailer was stolen out of his driveway at about 9:00 on a Saturday morning.  Dude just backed in and hooked it up and drove off before anyone could stop him.  Also, it will be good to see Riverside open back up and divert some of this traffic back off from Cincinnati.  That street is turning into a racetrack at certain times of day.

Would love to see more road diets like what was done at 31st between Peoria & Riverside.

What's sad about the sidewalk issue is that most of the neighborhood strongly supports the Gathering Place and the sidewalk.  There are going to be some challenges to figure out with the increased vehicular and pedestrian traffic but we'll work through them. 

Cincinnati has become a raceway and they are moving forward with speed humps from 21st to 31st. 

It will be another couple of years before traffic regulates in the area with the opening of the Downtown Cincinnati Ramp, Riverside Drive and the upcoming construction on Peoria between 21st and 15th.

What are they doing to the Cincinnati flyover, or is this something different?  And what is the plan for Peoria between 21st and 15th?  I know with the BRT there will be some improvements up and down the corridor for the stations.  Too bad it won't have room for a dedicated traffic lane.
