Cincinnati council's budget and finance committee voted today (Monday) to give control of 35 properties in Over-the-Rhine, mostly north of Liberty Street, to the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation for re-development.
The Over-the-Rhine Community Council opposed giving control of the properties to the organization, also known as 3CDC. The council argued that 3CDC already has too much control over development in Over-the-Rhine.
The 2014 MidPoint Indie Summer lineup has been announced. The free, outdoor concert series organized by 3CDCand sponsored by the MidPoint Music Festival takes place Friday nights May 30 through August 29 on Fountain Square and features many of the bands that make the local music scene great.
The Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation, or 3CDC, was founded in 2003 to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of development activities in the city. Since then, 3CDC has managed the renovation of Fountain Square, Over-the Rhine’s Gateway Quarter, Washington Park, and dozens of other projects. 3CDC President & CEO Stephen Leeper and Vice President of Communications Anastasia Mileham talk about efforts to revitalize the city during the last decade, and current projects the organization is working on.
