About HCLRC

Formation:

The Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation was incorporated by the 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 utilize the tools, expertise, and resources of the Port Authority as to efficiently carry out the HCLRC’s purpose and goals.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the HCLRC is to return vacant properties to productive use through the tools statutorily provided to the HCLRC and by leveraging the resources of the HCLRC’s executive arm, the Port Authority. In cooperation with our governmental and non-governmental partners and as a result of our relationships with private developers, the HCLRC will focus 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.
