CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati is announcing a design competition, "Connect the Blocks," to establish a vision for the decks over Fort Washington Way between Main Street and Elm Street.

The goal of the project is to connect the Central Business District to the Banks.

The space could potentially be used as a park, commercial development, or entertainment district but is not limited to those uses.

The pile foundations for the decks were originally constructed during the improvements made to Fort Washington Way in the early 2000's.

Now, the city seeks to develop on those foundations.

The city will conduct a call for entries in a national design competition for design, architectural, and engineering experts to create design concepts and cost estimates.

Local professionals will act as judges in the competition.

The public is invited to share ideas and opinions through an online survey.

There are also two scheduled public meetings:

September 26, 2012
6:00 PM
Madisonville Recreation Center

October 9, 2012
6:00 PM
Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Main Branch Tower Room

The public will also be invited to review the finalists' designs.

he competition is expected to last 8 months in total.

You can find out more about the project on the Connect the Blocks website.
