Vision: Avondale is a community somewhat torn between a dominant regional economic use and local neighborhood needs. On one hand, the community is home to the sixth best Children’s hospital in the country while simultaneously encompassing two of the lowest performing schools in the Cincinnati Public School District. Avondale’s close proximity to the two largest employers in the city, significant current and future investment along Burnet Avenue, and regional tourism asset (The Cincinnati Zoo) are overshadowed by a high crime rate, negative public perception, and overall deteriorating commercial and residential building stock.
