Check Out Crowley's Environmental Justice Idea

Vice Mayor David Crowley on Tuesday brings up his proposed Environmental Justice ordinance for the first time at council's health, education and environment committee, which he chairs. The committee meets at noon in council chambers.

For an early look, click here for the 13-page ordinance.

I appreciate Crowley's idea, but what happens when a company chooses NKY or SE Indiana over the City because of these restrictions? Is Cincinnati at a time when we can limit such economic development? I really don't think so. How can we have a limited/dwindling tax base and continue serving Cincinnati's most needy?

Meanwhile, crime rolls on, people are afraid to come downtown, the schools are in the crapper, oh but we have money to spend on pie-in-the-sky save the earth schemes. Oh yes, the city's priorities are clearly in line with reality.

This should be called the "Don't Invest in Lower-Income Neighborhoods Act".

Osama bin Crowley - working hard to make the working poor even more poor.

The costs of environmental problems on low income communities are severe -- asthma, cancer, etc. I applaud Crowley for giving those communities a voice. As for anonymous 8:40, I am not afraid to go downtown. I would live downtown if I could afford it. You must be thinking of some other city. As there is no shortage of folks downtown -- including evenings when there is an event such as the ballet, an art opening, or a ball game.

10:31 and 9:22, your points are well taken (aside from the Osama comment). Still, what kind of city is this if we can't solve our basic issues of justice.

Cincinnati isn't so desperate for economic development that this trumps any other concerns. We have to get our priorities right, and this one should be a no-brainer.

What's with the person living in the past? Didn't the Enquirer just report that the Cincinnati Public Schools have improved their rating. Afraid to go downtown? It has been so busy downtown it is getting harder and harder to park.
Old 'head in the sand' is so afraid of change he/she wouldn't see improvement if it bit them in the backside. Thank goodness we have people like Crowley with progressive ideas and understanding to make our City better.

wingnut 8:40 is the only one afraid to go Downtown. You can't get into most of the restaurants because they are so crowded. Nada is so crowded that I'm waiting for the Fire Dept to start enforcing their capacity limit.

Hey Capped. Do you really think that the car break ins, assaults, and robberies downtown are published to the detriment of local businesses. Of course not.
Ask the Police and see what they have to say.
How about those UC kids being robbed at gunpoint on a daily basis? You are extremely gullible.

There is no reason that the city should welcome businesses that jeopardize our citizens health. That's not economic development and we're not Bhopal.

Don't get me started. I will be here ALL DAY, 24/7 to impersonate the President of the Blue Chip Young Republicans and bash all conservatives. That'll show them!
