Urgent: Blog readers needed to submit project ideas to NYP

Several days ago, Oliver Comstock, a member of Norwood Young Professionals who does some of the marketing for the fast growing, highly civic-minded group, contacted us with a request. The group would like our readers to suggest projects near City Hall they can add to those they have already selected for their “Taking Care of Business” event on September 20th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. On that day, NYPs will be working with about 100 volunteers from “Give Back Cincinnati” doing some landscaping, trash pick up, and painting of various public as well as privately-owned commercial buildings - all for only the cost of materials!

So far, the old Safety Lane/Farmer’s Market next to Victory Park pool, City Hall, the old Firehouse on Montgomery Rd. near Norwood Plaza, Montgomery Rd. parking meters, and three businesses are scheduled for attention on September 20, but Oliver tells us they quickly need to add 2-3 more commercial buildings to the list, preferably in and around City Hall. Now, really, who better to give them project ideas than our faithful readers?

You can either leave your ideas in the comments box, and/or, if you would like a speedy reply from NYP, you can send them to Projects do not have to be limited to just painting - they’re open to all kinds of suggestions.
