Redevelopment along Madison Road

Capital Investment Group, a local-to-Cincinnati development firm, is proposing to redevelop the old Pig and Whistle/Larosas and adjacent properties near 2680 Madison Road.  The redevelopment area is bounded by Madison Road on the south, Besuden Court on the west, Wasson Way and Rookwood Commons on the north.

The proposed redevelopment will demolish existing structures at 2654, 2658, 2680, 2682 (LaRosa’s) Madison Road; 3636, 3640, 3646, 3648 Besuden Court and construct a new six story multi-use building and parking garage.  Besuden properties are zoned single family residential (SF-6).  The Madison Road properties are zoned Community Commercial Automobile-oriented (CC-A).  CIG is proposing a Planned Development district zone change to allow the mixed-use development.

Parking Meter Increased

Many on-street meters added $0.25 to hourly rate

CINCINNATI – In September, 2017, the City of Cincinnati’s Parking Division changed meters to reflect the $0.25 increase.  The change effects the City’s smart meters and multi-space kiosks, which comprise the majority of metered spaces. The remaining older, coin-operated Duncan meters will also be updated.

“As we start to see growth in commercial activity, adjusting rates allows us to manage parking supply and cut down time spent searching for a parking spot, thereby cutting down on traffic and congestion,” said Oscar Bedolla, director of the City’s Department of Community and Economic Development, which houses the Parking Division. “In turn, more customers get through the doors of our local businesses.”

This is the first increase in neighborhood meter rates since 2010. Rates in the Central Business District and Over-the-Rhine (OTR) were last increased in 2015 with the creation of five parking zones throughout the two areas. This is consistent with the City’s dynamic pricing parking model.
