Is the City of Cincinnati simply hopeless?

Is it a basket case like Detroit, where its non-felonious, productive citizens flee to the suburbs or other urbs entirely, and we should just forget about its future, or should we stay and continue to fight?

That's the question urban COASTers ask themselves.

With the Parking Plot just having been signed, the Streetcar pending approval of an additional $17.4 million this week, a beyond-repair City pension fund, and countless other problems looming, is it time to throw in the towel in the City of Cincinnati?


  1. Yes, please feel to flee to the suburbs. There will be plenty of problems for COAST to fix there over the next decade as fewer and fewer people want to live there. let's see how COAST's regimen works when poverty spreads into the 'burbs even more than it has, when all the flimsy houses built in the last twenty years start to wear out at the same time, and when fewer people want the hassles of the big house and yard.

    Cincinnati is preparing itself for a radically-altered future landscape where people live and work within a smaller footprint. Many beyond-the-beltway suburbs are going to be left high and dry.

  2. "Is it time to throw in the towel"

    YES!!! This city would be so much better off with out you in it! I BEG you to please LEAVE. Flee to whatever conservative, white-washed suburb you want! I'll send you cookies at your new address thanking you for finally leaving us alone!
