The Banks and Sawyer Point

The Enquirer's article highlighting the groundbreaking Riverfront Park in the midst of the Banks reminded me of a question that's been lingering in the back of my mind: once the new park is completed, what's to become of Sawyer Point? The target date is late 2010.

It seems to me that a lot of the things that currently happen at Sawyer Point may move to Riverfront, particularly as the Banks itself is completed. I would think the City and the County would pressure groups to put events at Riverfront. Party in the Park seems like a likely candidate to move to Riverfront. So, perhaps, do Blues Fest, the Fourth of July celebration, and the Black Family Reunion.

Anyone here privy to whether there's been discussion of how diminished Sawyer Point's role is expected to be in Cincinnati's cultural life post-Riverfront Park?
