BOND HILL, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati city leaders held a press conference Thursday to provide progress on the Bond Hill Neighborhood Enhancement Program.
The 90-day city/community partnership concentrated efforts to remove blight, lower crime and improve the neighborhood.
Cincinnati City Manager Milton Dohoney said blight was decreased by 10 percent, there were 39 arrests during the blitz, and a large scale clean up of the area attracted over 100 volunteers. He also said a training program was held for landlords.
Corporate and community investment in the project totaled $8,100. Bond Hill is using the funds for supplies and materials that will help improve the cleanliness, beauty, safety and quality of the neighborhood.
