United Way to Provide Lyft Rides to Vaccine Appointments: Get Out the Vax: Based on the success of a unique partnership between TriHealth and United Way of Greater Cincinnati called Ride United, six healthcare systems have come together with United Way to sponsor a transportation program using the ridesharing platform Lyft to support free rides to vaccine appointments for community residents. The Purpose Throughout the months of April and May, our community vaccination strategy is focusing on key Get Out the Vax tactics to increase the number of vaccinated community members.  Recognizing that transportation to appointments will be a challenge for many community members, this program will provide free rides through Lyft by distributing codes for round trip rides to appointments.  We have initially secured 1,000 codes for distribution. To access this program simply call dial 211 (United Way Transportation Solutions) United Way’s 211 call specialists will: ·        Determine the community member has a confirmed vaccine appointment ·        Ensure that the member has an unmet transportation need (and refer to COA or SORTA, if appropriate) ·        Assess whether the community member has the ability to use the Lyft ridesharing platform ·        Distribute a single use round trip code to be used the day of appointment United Way 211 (uwgc.org)

New Speed Limit for Taylor Mill Road

Taylor Mill Residents

I am pleased to announce that after almost two years requesting the speed limit reduction, the City of Taylor Mill Commission received approval from The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) to reduce the speed limit on Taylor Mill Road, KY 3716, to 35 mph.

The city has submitted the necessary paperwork to KYTC accepting the new speed limit.   The state will now set a date to begin making the necessary sign changes.  We are not sure when this will take place, so we want to get the word out that it is forthcoming. 

The commission hopes this reduction in speed limit will create a safer pedestrian walkway.   This speed limit reduction will enhance safety and the walkability for our residents.  It is important to note that in 2021 the city will receive an OKI Grant of $846,000.00 to complete the extension of the sidewalks all the way to the Trifecta Building.  This will make the city a much safer and more walkable community.   The construction of the sidewalks along Taylor Mill Road is just one way the Commission is working to improve our city.

Daniel L. Bell, Mayor
