Partners Celebrate ‘Decade of Development’ at The Banks

CINCINNATI – Representatives from the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County and the State of Ohio joined various partners on Monday, April 2 to observe the 10th anniversary of the groundbreaking for The Banks project.

The “Decade of Development” event took place outside the Reds Hall of Fame at the conclusion of the 99th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade. Councilmember Amy Murray joined the Hamilton County commissioners, various state reps and partners from the Cincinnati Reds. Cincinnati Bengals Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz served as the event emcee.

In addition to live musical performances and festivities surrounding the Reds tailgate party at The Banks, the celebration included the cutting of three signature cakes. Local school children born in April 2008 helped cut the cakes. The ceremony serves as a way to recognize the decade-long success of one of Cincinnati’s premier live/work/play neighborhoods, its significant role in turning Cincinnati into a destination city, the many partners who had a hand in its on-time, on-budget, economically inclusive development, and to launch The Banks into its next phase.
