Back to the subject at hand -- what does Cincinnati lack for it to grow again? One word -- LEADERSHIP. City council is rediculus- too much ask "what is in it for me and my constituency?".

Most talented leaders have moved up I-71 to the communities of Blue Ash, Montgomery and Mason.
Speaking of which, why does it matter what the population figures of Cincinnati are? Do you care as much about the population of Norwood or Harrison?

When someone looks to relocate to "Cincinnati", or if a company is looking to expand to "Cincinnati" they do not mean within the city limits, they mean somewhere within the Greater Cincinnati area. Doing so affects everyone in the region.

The sooner we realize and appreciate that, the sooner our region will progress.

Cincy could really use the economic development that tends to follow light rail systems!!! I've seen this development with my own eyes and Cincy is way more of a "real city" than Charlotte.

UrbanCharlotte, if I could give you more rep points I would, but I have to give them away to someone else first.

We will NEVER be what we can be without rail. No question.

Default Hoping to find old friends.

I lived in Cincinnati for about 5 yrs back in the 80's. I came out there. The first bar I ever went to was in Clifton called PJ'S. I went there a lot and I also hung out at Badlands down on Plum St. I have gotten out of touch with so many awesome friends since I relocated back up north of the Dayton area. I know this is a long shot but I'd love to get back in contact with ones I knew back in the day. So this would be mostly those around the 45 to 60 age bracket, I'd say. If you think you may know me of any or my old friends, please get with me or if you could leave a reply to this post, that would be great! Thanks...
