Renaming the Banks Project -- Your Input

The Developers of what is now known as "the Banks" project are seeking community input on what the ultimate name of the district/neighborhood should be.

To take the survey, go here.

It should be named "The Bottoms" for hisotorical purposed, if it is going to be changed at all

Mark Miller said...

Why not sell naming rights to the highest bidder and try to recover some of those taxpayer dollars you've been sinking into it.

COAST said...

Instead of "The Banks" perhaps you could call it "The Cincinnati COAST"...yeah, that has a nice ring to it.

David Pepper said...

Ok -- that's funny, COAST. Actually, it does have a nice ring to it.

Even better, let's combine your and Mark's ideas--you guys could take all that money you raised at your recent fundraiser and buy the naming rights.

What does COAST think about Greg Hartmann having two assistants? Isn't that something they were whining about Mr. Portune and yourself?

Palookaville ?
Renaming it now would probably just cause confusion. It might very well have found it's own name in 50 years. I wouldn't worry about it.

I actually like "The Bottoms," but David, what do you personally think it should be named?

Will you tell us?

David Pepper said...

Of those choices, I think I prefer Riverfront District, as in "Cincinnati's Riverfront District."

Gosh David - for a guy with a 1001 brilliant ideas - your pick for the name reallllllly sucks. (I mean that)

David Pepper said...

Thanks a lot. :)

So far, at least there are 660 people with equally horrible taste (2d place after "the Banks")

The Dean of Cincinnati said...

I voted for "Parkside," only because "Riverfront" without the word "District" was not an option.

In other words, of the four presented, I'd go with just "Riverfront."
