  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.

Over-the-Rhine's freshly renovated Washington Park will host a farmers market throughout the summer.

The Washington Park Farmers Market will be Mondays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. from June 3 through August 26. Organizers chose Monday because it's the one day of the week nearby Findlay Market is closed.

3CDC, which operates the park, is looking for vendors. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, April 26.
