Five regional agencies that aim to drive business and economic growth are moving in together.
The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI), Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority (Port Authority), Cincinnati Business Committee (CBC) and the Cincinnati Regional Business Committee (CRBC) are co-locating in the Three East Fourth Street building between Vine and Walnut streets Downtown.
The five organizations combined have about a hundred employees.
The Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority has released details of its “substantially completed” agreements with two private companies to operate Cincinnati’s parking meters, five downtown garages, and three surface parking lots.
The Port Authority’s agreement with Xerox State & Local Solutions is for 10 years, with a provision to extend it for up to two 10-year periods thereafter. Xerox will operate and maintain 4,900 parking meters in downtown Cincinnati and the city’s neighborhoods.
