Hamilton County, Ohio leads the nation for commuters coming from another county, topping the list at 40 percent. Considering how much and how quickly traffic peaks and drops off during morning and evening rush, this isn't surprising to me.

Cincinnati and Dayton looks closer and closer to being official a CSA.

Hi Wahl_Wrighter--

Insert cookie cutter comment here about why people keep leaving the city of Cincinnati and instead prefer to live in the suburbs. Cincinnati accounts for about 35% of the County's population but accounts for about 60-70% of the county's population loss since the last Census.

And until Cincinnati quits blowing money on projects like the streetcar and now a parking authority that's already screwed the pooch in other cities, Cincinnati will continue to get left behind.

Imagine how much better-performing the whole metro area would be if Cincinnati would have kept up with the growth in West Chester, Mason, or Lebanon.

I just hope the voters who decided to remain in Cincinnati get the wherewithal to throw out the current City Council.

I love the city and want to see it succeed. But it won't happen with Mark Mallory and Roxanne Qualls at the helm.

c'mon CSA!

I live in the middle (Lebanon), as we've already had this discussion many times, I am firmly on the side of "its obvious the two areas are merging and at some time in the not too distant future - they will be identified as one area by outsiders and those moving here from elsewhere -- no matter what the locals think about the cultures being so vastly different."

This makes sense to me. From my outside view, it looks like Cincinnati is just now reinvesting in its downtown and OTR areas in a way that makes me people want to live there. It looks like prior to the last few years, there was little to no reason to live in the city amenity-wise.

Fortunately Cincinnati does not have acres of corn fields to plow over with asphalt and Mcmansions so this isn't really possible....

Now tell me again how Cincinnati is chasing Westchester, Mason, and Lebanon in development?

Or maybe if we get an Applebees on Vine Street you'll consider all the development official.

With all of the ballyhooing about investment, a big bulk of it is business or replacement. The one statistic I see missing is how many new jobs have been created other than the casino which is really just a shift in jobs, Ohio's gain Indiana's loss. I expect Kentucky to fight back and authorize their own casino, they we will se how long that bubble lasts.

You make it up as you go? or do you have some links to back it up?

Links to what, some self-proclaimed expert telling me what it going to happen? I don't claim to have all the answers, but I do trust my own judgement based on experience and what I perceive is personal preference. And during the majority of my lifetime I have seen people moving to the suburbs and I strongly doubt it is suddenly going to reverse overnight to a significant degree. Yes, the cities are making strides becoming more attractive for people to desire living in their environment, and those desiring that just fine.

I personally want nothing to do with a high density concrete jungle, but that is my preference, same as you don't like the suburban aura. But guess what, the suburban environment is still way ahead, and I believe it is going to stay ahead indefinitely.

I don't need an expert to tell me the western neighborhoods of Cincinnati have been suffering. My first clue is virtually all of my family have left there. The few remaining like my son admit they are really becoming concerned and wondering whether to skedaddle. These are real life people and what they see happening about them.

Just go out and drive around in College Hill, Mt Airy, Colerain, Mt Healthy and even Forest Park and tell me they are not deteriorating. Then go closer in into Westwood and Bridgetown, before you ever get close to Price Hill. When I was younger I had many family relatives who lived in these areas. Today I have virtually none as they and their descendants have all fled. That is the big difference I see. These neighborhoods used to have generations of the same family. Now the descendants are just picking up and leaving. Just where do you think they are going?
