REACH is a collaborative effort between the Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority and the Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation. We are excited to bring years of hard work into beautiful new and renovated homes in Cincinnati’s historic neighborhoods.
Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority
Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority is an economic development agency that initiates projects to improve property value and promote job creation throughout Hamilton County. The Port Authority has broad development-related powers and expertise that allow it to take on complex projects that catalyze private investment, with operational focus on transportation, community revitalization, public finance and real estate development. Established by the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County in 2001, the Port Authority is a quasi-public agency that operates collaboratively with dozens of economic development, community, and corporate partners.
Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation
The mission of the Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation (HCLRC or Landbank) is to return vacant properties to productive use. In cooperation with governmental and non-governmental partners, as well as private developers, the HCLRC focuses on providing diverse commercial and residential opportunities through catalytic investment in neighborhoods. These investments will lead to improved community quality of life, blight and nuisance abatement, stabilization, revitalization, increased property values and will return unproductive properties to contributing, tax-paying status.
The Landbank was incorporated by the Hamilton County Treasurer in October 2011 and the HCLRC Board was appointed in January 2012. In February 2012, the Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority was contracted to serve as the management company for the HCLRC. Under this agreement, the Port Authority staff provides all executive and administrative services for the HCLRC. This relationship allows the HCLRC to use the tools, expertise, and resources of the Port Authority as to efficiently carry out the HCLRC’s purpose and goals.
