The Rennaissance of Norwood, Ohio

Those who lived and worked around Norwood, Ohio and the Cincinnati area in general refer to that day in 1986 as “Black Wednesday”. It was the date General Motors announced the closing of its Norwood General Motors Plant. Less than a year later, on August 26, 1987, the plant produced its last car, and a whopping 4,300 people were estimated to have lost their jobs.

It couldn’t have been a darker time for what was then, a very blue collar community. Norwood and its residents appreciated its independence from its large neighbor to the south, but it was facing potential bankruptcy. But the community and its leaders dug in. A deal was worked out for GM to demolish the giant plant and donate the land to the city. In 1990, the Central Parke revitalization began. New roadways were built. Then came the Rockwood Pavilion and Rockwood Commons. The area began attracting younger, more upscale families who gave a boost to the housing prices in the area. In 2006 the Linden Point project got underway and the progress has continued. Norwood and its 45212 zip code has been the subject of national news articles on its rebirth, including a not so pleasant eminent domain case that the community has put behind them.

The Renaissance of Norwood has been amazing, and the community has never looked back. It is an area where businesses and residents want to be.

What Happens If I’m Hit In A Parking Lot In Delhi?

Delhi, Ohio is a township located on the west side of Cincinnati. The population is around 30,000, though many people choose to live here because of affordable home prices. In 2014, Delhi was named the 18th safest neighborhood in Ohio.  Further, there is not as much traffic. Plenty of people make the commute and that’s because most of the attractions are within the metropolitan area.

If you get hit in a parking lot in Delhi or anywhere else, you want to know that you are protected. You may or may not find out about the car who actually hit you. Car insurance should be able to take care of the claim, but only if you have the right kind of coverage.

Anytime you buy automobile insurance in Ohio, you want to look at your options. This is why it can be advantageous to work with agents. Our goal is to help you get the best possible coverage in Delhi so you are protected while your car is in a parking lot, on the roads, or even parked in your driveway.

Comprehensive insurance is the additional coverage that you can get on your policy to protect when you’re not behind the wheel. The state of Ohio requires you to have liability insurance, but this is only good for when you’re on the roads. If you’re hit in the parking lot while you’re doing your grocery shopping or a shopping cart hits your side mirror, you will want to file a claim with the automobile insurance and know you’re not going to have to pay.

Make the call today and talk to one of our independent agents. We will help you to get a policy in Delhi so you have peace of mind that you have protection regardless of whether you’re on the road or in a parking lot.
