Visions for Findlay Market Neighborhood

Friends of Findlay Market have put together a forum on Oct. 26th to bring together many of those that are doing amazing things in the Findlay Market area. Learn about Cornerstone (an effort lead by Margery Spinney that is amazingly successful at making renters feel an ownership stake in their community). Learn about Damon Lynch's idea for an African Cooridor. Learn what Darrick Dansby is doing with Smart Money, a non-profit helping low-income folks get out of the cycle of debt, and many others. The event is free, hope to see you there:

When: 7-9 PM - Wed, Oct. 26
Where: Memorial Hall - 1225 Elm St.
Cost: Free - Enjoy free food from Findlay Market after the event.

Banks on Track

Questions involving the $20 Million in federal money to be used for garages at the banks has been answered with a little money manuevering. Looks like the banks is heading in the right direction and hopefully we'll see some dirt moving by end of year.


Back From Ecuador

Hey all... sorry for the long delay... I was in Ecuador with Give Back Cincinnati and Habitat for Humanity from Oct. 1-12. Back to blogging now and in a short order I'll be updating my Give Back Ecuador blog with commentary and pictures from the event. Check it out at in the coming days.
