Northside Celebrates Completion Of Parkside Rehab Project
Just in time for National Homeownership Month, City leaders and neighbors celebrated the completion of a newly rehabbed home in Northside on Tuesday, the final piece in the Parkside Rehab Project.
Comprised of a three-unit condominium building on Chase Avenue and a single-family home on Mad Anthony Street, the Parkside Rehab Project aims to increase homeownership and remove blight in an area of the neighborhood needing redevelopment.
Cincinnati City Council President Pro Tem Wendell Young, City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr. and Jim Cunningham, Field Office Director for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, joined members of the Cincinnati Northside Community Urban Redevelopment Corp., 8K Partners, the Cincinnati Development Fund and Northside residents for the ribbon-cutting at 4207 Mad Anthony St.
"Partnerships like the one we see here today drive progress in the city of Cincinnati," City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr. said. "We're proud to work with neighborhoods to strategically invest in our own future."
The City’s investment of $85,000 leveraged $127,000 in private funding for the Parkside Rehab Project.
