Self Guided Green Educational Signage can make the difference between seeing Green and getting lost.
Join us in our efforts to create Green Educational signage for the Cincinnati Fire Station No. 9 in Paddock Hills and No. 51 in College Hill. They are Cincinnati’s first Green LEED buildings and we want to tell the world that when visiting the site. We give many tours of the projects and interest is always high. Contact us if you can help donate time, materials or funds towards this project. For a great example go to NKY Sanitation District 1 or the new Go Green Garden at the LEED Platinum Entrance at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. Contact.

Former Cincinnati firehouse to be sold
Posted: 06 Jul 2010 09:00 AM PDT
The City of Cincinnati plans to sell the former Fire Station No. 51 at 1654 Marlowe Avenue in College Hill to the highest bidder.
Bidding for the 3,800-square-foot building will start at $55,000, the fair market value as determined by the City’s Property Management and Real Estate-Relocation Services Division.
The vacant single-bay firehouse, built in 1914, originally served as a substation for the Cincinnati Police Department.
Cincinnati Fire Department’s Engine 51 took over the property in May 1926 following a volunteer-fueled renovation that required only $2,000 in City funds*.
Engine 51 relocated to a new $3.8 million, 12,000-square-foot facility at the corner of Hamilton and Llanfair avenues in November 2009.
* Approximately $24,000 in 2009 dollars.
