Cincinnati names two additional green roof sites

Two Cincinnati buildings have been named as green roof demonstration sites that will be available to the public for interactive educational purposes.

The projects will be installed upon the --> --> --> (MSD) new Wastewater Engineering Center in Lower Price Hill and on Fire Station No. 51 in College Hill, currently being designed by the Facilities Management division of the Public Services Department.

Vice Mayor David Crowley and Councilmember Chris Bortz requested that two sites be identified in a March 18 motion referred by City Council.

The City already has installed one green roof on top of MSD's Galbraith Road complex in Hartwell.

Neat stuff...I know that there was an architecture studio, this quarter, that was examining green roof possibilities for the Main Library Downtown. I don't know if anything will come of it, but it is something to keep on your radar screen.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of that. I posted something about this in April...the City is a perfect place for these types of projects because of all of the flat roofs on the historic buildings.
