Mayor to give State of the City address

Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory will deliver the 2012 State of the City Address Tuesday night to the citizens of Cincinnati.

Awaiting the address, city council members shared their own thoughts on the state of the city.

"I think we're in a better place right now than we were this time last year," P.G. Sittenfeld said.

The excitement about the city extends across the aisle.

"I think the mayor has done a good job especially working with the council," Charlie Winburn said. "I don't think we should be trashing our city. Our city is moving forward."

A lot has changed in the last year since Mallory gave his 2011 address including big changes for the streetcar project, the casino construction, and the downtown Banks development.

In the last year Cincinnatians have also seen the Washington Park project take shape and a new police chief was sworn in.

In the midst of excitement there's also concern about the state of the city.

"I'm glad that there's many, many positive things going on in the city, but I think we're in a precarious situation right now," former councilwoman Amy Murray said. "You have to have your financial house in order first to move forward."

"We obviously need to watch out for wasteful spending and make sure we're continuing to be totally committed to basic services," Sittenfeld said.

"We must continue to aggressively put Cincinnati back to work," Winburn said. "I believe we also need to spend more time on our 52 neighborhoods helping them to develop commercial residential development projects."
