On Friday, October 24 the post Friday Find: “Pop-Up” Preservation featured Cincinnati’s Union Terminal and the campaign to help save it. We are happy to announce on Tuesday, November 4 the voters of Hamilton County voted “yes” in favor of issue 8! The terminal will now be saved through a sales tax increase of 1/4 of 1% over the next five years. The increase will raisae a total of $172 million dollars and go towards the restoration of the terminal. This marks the largest sales tax issue in support of a preservation project and hopefully will be an inspiration for other communities to invest in historic properties!
