LET'S BUILD OUR TRAIL

JOIN US in transforming one of the country's great undiscovered greenways -- a 7.6 mile mixed use trail that goes from Victory Parkway near Xavier University through twelve local neighborhoods and connects to the Little Miami Bike trail. With connecting trails we will someday have a network of over 30 miles of off-road pathways creating walkable neighborhoods. Help us build a vibrant active community in Cincinnati.

Avondale community meeting

During May and June, Wasson Way volunteers held an Avondale community meeting, met with the Urban League of Southwest Ohio (a job creation agency based in Avondale) and presented to the Executive Board of the Avondale Community Council. Since extending the Wasson Way to Avondale in February, we have been working to inform local residents and leaders.

City Council Votes 8-0 to Purchase Right of Way from Railroad

On Wednesday June 3rd, City Council voted in favor of purchasing the right of way for 4.1 miles of the Wasson Way from Norfolk Southern Railroad which will run from Dana Avenue to Red Bank Road. The vote was 8-0, with all of Council in favor and Councilman Winburn absent. This is a tremendous milestone for the Wasson Way project. We are grateful to the support of Mayor Cranley, City Council, and the many volunteers who have supported this project. We are pursuing multiple ways to acquire the right of way for the full 7.6 miles of trail which will run from Avondale through 12 neighborhoods to the Little Miami Bike Trail. The City will be applying for a Federal TIGER grant in June to fund the construction of the trail.
