Lytle Park trees come before the Zoning Board of Appeals

MEDIA ADVISORY

For Friday, June 14th, 2019

The determined advocates of preserving mature healthy trees in Cincinnati’s historic Lytle Park will present their case at a hearing of the Zoning Board of Appeals tomorrow morning. They intend to make it clear– that our parks must remain public entities and are not for sale.

Concerned defenders of our city parks and neighborhood residents strongly opposed to misguided plans to destroy the fifty year old trees, will be joined tomorrow by representatives of the Sierra Club which recently endorsed the effort to preserve the trees in question. Founded by John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization.

WHO: Advocates of preserving trees in historic Lytle Park (Possible appearance by the Dr. Seuss’s, Lorax)

WHAT: Hearing on the issue before the Zoning Board of Appeals

WHEN: Friday, June 14 at 9:00 A.M.

WHERE: Centennial Plaza, 805 Central Avenue Room 500, downtown Cincinnati, Ohio

The public is welcome as observers, but it is believed only the appellants, their attorneys, legal counsel of the City of Cincinnati and perhaps those representing Western & Southern Insurance Company are permitted to speak. Regardless of the outcome the next step may be the Court of Common Pleas of Hamilton County.
