The Port

 

The Port launched “Purpose + Progress,” its six-year impact report (2012 – 2017) on October 1, 2018 at Memorial Hall with more than 300 partners and supporters in attendance. The celebration kicked off with a welcome from President of the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners Todd Portune and City of Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley.

“Purpose + Progress” explores why and how The Port strategically invests in blighted and unproductive real estate and supports development; and, captures the progress we’ve made in our efforts to be truly transformative for Hamilton County. 2012 marked a new beginning for The Port when Laura Brunner became President and CEO. Brunner shared, “Our vision is for The Port to revive our real estate resources to fuel Cincinnati’s economic vitality.” “Purpose + Progress” is available at http://bit.ly/PortImpact
