Last Friday, a motion to reallocate three pieces of city-owned property for public use was approved by the City Planning Commission
. The properties are at the intersection of Vine Street and Erkenbrecher Avenue, near the main entrance to the Cincinnati Zoo
The properties are to be used to create better access to the zoo’s new entrance
for both cars and pedestrians by widening the road, says Felix Bere, senior city planner for the City of Cincinnati. A wider road will also improve parking around the zoo. Plans for the three properties have been in the works since spring 2011.
