      Inner-Ring Suburbs: Challenges and Opportunities

      Academic research from the late 1990’s and early 2000’s show that first suburbs were facing large city issues, such as depopulation, aging housing stock, deindustrialization, increasing poverty, and disinvestment. During this timeframe, these suburbs started to band together to form consortiums and advocate their unique challenges to state and federal officials. In Ohio, three such consortiums were formed – one near Cleveland in 1996, a second near Cincinnati in 2003, and a third near Dayton in 2005. Learn about analysis of 33 first suburbs in Hamilton County, Ohio (Cincinnati) with economic, social, demographic and local government financial data. Data is showing that two tracts are occurring: one of stability and the other of decline, albeit at differing rates.
