Greater Cincinnati's development arm is zeroing in on a piece of Bond Hill history to rejuvenate the area. 

Walking in what was Swifton Commons, now Jordan Crossing, you can see it's in need of a lot of attention. The concrete sidewalks are cracked. The shrubbery is overgrown. The paint on the benches is peeling off and only about a dozen stores remain open. But this property could breathe new life into Bond Hill.

A statewide plan to revive struggling communities is kicking off in Cincinnati. "Moving Ohio Forward Demolition Program" uses national mortgage settlement funds to tear down blighted properties.

The first houses are coming down in East Price Hill.

Ken Smith with the community development organization Price Hill Will is excited about the redevelopment opportunities and other possible land uses.

Cincinnati officials are studying a plan to make it quieter for some residents who live in neighborhoods with a lot of train traffic.

Train engineers are required to blow their horns one-quarter mile before each roadway crossing. 

It’s the same pattern each time, two long blasts, followed by a short and then another long one. 

Since sound travels, some residents hear it a lot especially when there are several crossings located close together.
