CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Tony Walsh is the first to say there is a problem with the neighborhood he loves. He lives in a historic house on West McMicken Avenue and he said the barricades seen all over his street these days work.
"It's definitely helping. It's like a miracle as far as cutting down on the traffic that was looking for the prostitutes and johns," Walsh said.
Walsh said an infestation of hookers and crime took hold in the last few years on his street. The barricades are one part of a community plan to stop it and that plan also includes citizen patrols and other efforts.
"We're trying all these different approaches because just arresting people wasn't doing anything," he said.
However, not everyone on West McMicken Avenue says the barricades work.
Resident Mark Stucker recently sent a letter to Cincinnati City Councilwoman Yvette Simpson saying that he didn't agree with the city's plan.
"I've seen them in the past week move down to Central Parkway and others say there is an up tick in prostitution now in the Dayton Historic District, Price Hill, and Glendale Road, angering those residents," Stucker's letter said. "All this is accomplishing is moving them to other neighborhoods at the expense of taxpayer and police resources mostly for the comfort of homeowners on McMicken that are well organized and have a persistent voice with city hall and the local media."
Simpson formally acknowledged this argument on Monday during council business. She also said city leaders are working on a report about the status of the barricades and other efforts.
Meanwhile, the barricades are expected to stay up for a least another two months.
