Hearing postponed on new condominium

News briefs

Staff/Wire reports

HYDE PARK - An appeal hearing was postponed Monday for a proposed six-story building mixing retail, offices and high-end condominiums at Erie and Michigan avenues on Hyde Park Square.

The delay came after residents who oppose the project asked for another hearing date because of the Cincinnati Board of Zoning Appeals' lengthy agenda Monday morning, which would have pushed the square building appeal back to the afternoon.

A new hearing is expected to be scheduled within 10 days.

School mergers may happen earlier

CORRYVILLE - Cincinnati Public Schools is considering consolidating four schools earlier than anticipated under the district's $1 billion facilities plan.

Officials are planning to move Windsor School into Douglass School and Rothenberg School into Vine School next fall.

The Windsor/Douglass consolidation had been planned for fall 2006. The Rothenberg/Vine consolidation had been planned for 2008.

District officials plan to meet with school decision-making councils today.

Call the schools for details.

Approval awaited for new bike trail

ANDERSON TWP. - Officials have changed the date of the fourth and final meeting for the Five Mile Bike Trail.

The 6-7 p.m. open house originally scheduled Feb. 19 at the township's main office off Beechmont Avenue now will be Feb. 26.

The 2-mile Five Mile Trail is part of the popular four-mile Anderson Trails network of bike/hike trails. It will connect the State Road-Five Mile area with Turpin High School near Newtown Road.
