At our regular Board Meeting starting a 7pm on Tuesday, March 8 at Knox Church, we plan to discuss traffic safety, and possible pedestrian safety improvements with the head of Cincinnati's Director of Transportation Engineering, Michael Moore. This topic may require a separate traffic/pedestrian safety meeting on some future date.
Residents, business owners, and City officials formed the Hyde Park East Steering Committee in 2014. They have met to create a new Hyde Park East Plan that will detail issues the neighborhood faces, potential solutions, and implementable steps moving forward. In November 2014, the Steering Committee held a public meeting to go over the priority issues and solutions. A draft plan will be presented to the community for feedback in the next few months.
One of the problems that the Hyde Park East business district and surrounding residential neighborhood faces is the influx of traffic and parking during certain days and hours of the week - particularly on Friday and Saturday evenings. The Hyde Park East Steering Committee has explored various solutions to help mitigate the challenge of parking. It is clear that in order to help alleviate the parking stress on the neighborhood, a multi-prong solution approach is needed.
One of the solutions that the neighborhood could see implemented in the next six months, is a proposal to install a small parking lot between the Ravenswood apartment building and the tennis courts along Erie Avenue. The Hyde Park East Steering Committee is asking for your input on this solution so please answer the following questions to provide your feedback.

HPNC meets every second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm usually in the Commons room of Knox Presbyterian Church. All meetings are open to the public.
