Meet at Coffee Emporium in Over-the-Rhine at 1:00 p.m.
Join Urban Rangers and CNU Midwest as they hike through three different cities along the Ohio River. Experience first hand how planners, engineers and architects have shaped our cityscape. Trek through public spaces, along pedestrian pathways, and navigate the barriers that fragment our cityscape. The hike route includes walking up and down city stairs, over bridges, and through interesting urban places. There will be a break half way through at a local watering hole.
CNU Midwest is the regional chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism serving the states and cities that border the Ohio River and beyond. The organization seeks to aid leaders, developers, and citizens interested in rebuilding our existing urban centers and towns, in building new urban neighborhoods on traditional models and in reconfiguring existing, and transitioning sprawling suburbs into new, diverse and sustainable communities.
