In late June, Cincinnati City Council approved a round of development incentives for several projects. Those included a conversion of the PNC Tower from office to residential and retail, and a mixed-use apartment building along the river called Artistry. Some of the tax incentive deals are for developments that include a certain percentage of units of affordable housing; others do not.

The Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation, better known as 3CDC, is used to getting its own way when it comes to downtown matters.

This time, though, 3CDC may have bit off more than it can chew.

Cincinnati City Council Member David Mann is revising his proposal to regulate short-term rentals. These sites, which include Airbnbs, are growing in number and popularity in neighborhoods including Over-the-Rhine. Neighbors have raised concerns about the lack of available housing as more homes are converted to Airbnb rentals and about the noise these units bring to the neighborhood. Advocates say they are great for the economy and neighborhood vitality.

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik Monday morning about Mayor John Cranley's naming of Christopher Smitherman as vice mayor and David Mann as chair of the Budget and Finance Committee. Does the Smitherman choice have implications for the 2021 mayor's race, when Cranley will be term-limited out?

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley has used his veto power to fix what a council ordinance he believes would have resulted in a structurally unbalanced city budget.

On Wednesday, council voted 5-4 to reject a plan from City Manager Harry Black to boot cars with three or more unpaid parking tickets, a move that would have generated $600,000 for the city.

In Black's proposal, that money would be replaced with a $600,000 withdrawal from the urban development fund.

Changes are coming to Cincinnati City Hall security, but the new measures are being scaled back from what was first proposed.  

City Manager Harry Black announced his latest plans in a memo Monday.
