Covington ramping up $72 million plan for makeover of northern Kentucky city

Covington is ramping up a five-year, $72 million plan to invest in infrastructure, economic development and neighborhood revitalization.
It's described as a top-to-bottom approach, from replacing deteriorated sidewalks to revitalizing the riverfront.
Officials say when it's finished, Covington could look and feel like a new city.
Since July, about $10 million has already been invested in sidewalk improvements.
Streetscape improvements are coming as well.
Perhaps the biggest sign of progress is the demolition of hundreds of vacant, abandoned residential structures.
