There are a lot of urban areas people would live in if they were gated. This technique has been used in some urban cities where they gate both ends of a street create a private pedestrian common area maintained by special tax assesment. They even gate the alleys with card key access for cars. I've often thought that might be a solution for some areas in OTR and West End.

I'm not aware of any place Cincinnati has approved gated access. I'm not even aware of any entirely private development where gated access has been permitted, much less previously dedicated streets. There are only a few (and I emphasize FEW) streets that have been closed off to provide limited access or one way access and none of those have gated access.

The Mt Auburn council & reps from Christ Hospital spoke about this site in Council Chambers today--appears there is still support to get the area cleaned up.
