Mayor Cranley to report on progress in East Price Hill after 90-day neighborhood enhancement program

CINCINNATI -- A progress report on a recent 90-day collaboration of East Price Hill residents, city departments and community organizations to reduce crime in the area and improve the quality of life is expected Thursday.

The local community launched the three month Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) in March.

The NEP focuses on developing neighborhood assets by:

  • Concentrating building code enforcement
  • Identifying and "cooling down" crime hot spots
  • Cleaning up streets, sidewalks, and vacant lots
  • Beautifying landscapes, street-scapes and public right of way
  • Engaging property owners and residents to create and sustain a more livable neighborhood

The initiative began soon after an 8-year-old boy was killed when his older brother accidentally shot him in the chest at a home in East Price Hill.

Mayor John Cranley is slated to announce at 10 a.m. if the program is working.
