educate yourself

One of the biggest hurdles Mill Creek has is its past. While our history is our heritage, it has also given the public a very negative view of the creek. Learn all you can about both our history and our current efforts to revitalize Mill Creek.

Many of Cincinnati's most underrepresented communities make their home along the banks of the Mill Creek: South Cumminsville, West End, Camp Washington, North Fairmount, South Fairmount, East Westwood, and Lower Price Hill. These neighborhoods are without access to full grocers and have a median income of less than $18,000/yr.
