Price Hill Will Is Leading The Revitalization Efforts In East, West & Lower Price Hill

Provided, Price Hill Will

Price Hill is known for more than just its famous chili; it?'s a neighborhood in the midst of revitalization with renovated homes, young musicians and community gardens emerging. This is in part thanks to Price Hill Will, a non-profit community development agency that has been working to renew East, West and Lower Price Hill for more than a decade, incorporated in 2004.

It?'s doing this through physical revitalization, commercial development and community engagement. Its flagship program, Buy-Improve-Sell, has renovated about 60 single-family homes in East and West Price Hill.

Joining us to talk about the work Price Hill Will has done and current projects, such as turning the vacant, historic Masonic Lodge in East Price Hill into a community arts and event center, are Executive Director Ken Smith, Director of Real Estate Development Jay Kratz and Director of Creative PlacemakingLaura Jekel.
