Over-the-Rhine has experienced a remarkable transformation during the last decade. It will soon get a new entertainment district that could double the amount of bars and restaurants in the area. The real estate market is one of the most sought after in the city, and the number of affordable housing units have decreased.

Here to discuss the various changes in OTR and planning for the neighborhood'’s future are Executive Director of the Community Building Institute at Xavier University, Liz Blume; Executive Director of Over-the-Rhine Community Housing, Mary Rivers; and President of the Over-the-Rhine Community Council, Ryan Messer
