    Last year, we discussed our College Hill, Clifton Heights, and Northside neighborhoods; this year, we will look to the next set of redeveloping neighborhoods in the Northern Kentucky River Cities: Covington, Newport, Bellevue, Dayton, and Ludlow.

    Discussion Information: 

    Ovation, Ludlow Yards, Manhattan Harbor, Bellevue Waterfront and just maybe - FC Cincinnati?  These projects represent a continued effort to revitalize Northern Kentucky’s River City neighborhoods.
