There will be a public hearing at the City of Cincinnati’s Law & Public Safety Committee on Monday, March 18th at 9am at City Hall. The public hearing will give you and other citizens the opportunity to share your thoughts on the two headquarter location options, 3300 Central Parkway (Clifton), or 5837 Hamilton Avenue (College Hill).

District 5 if on Central Parkway
District 5 if on Central Parkway in Clifton
District 5 if on Hamilton Avenue in College Hill
District 5 if on Hamilton Avenue in College Hill

The Law & Public Safety Committee will vote on a location on Monday, April 1st. All of the councilmembers will vote on a location on Wednesday, April 3rd at the City Council meeting.

  • 3300 Central Parkway: owned by the City, makes use of existing building, shell/foundation, acquisition of adjacent hotel required = Total project cost of $9.7 million, which is within original budget; project completion roughly 18-24 months
  • 5837 Hamilton Avenue: current temporary location for District 5, City would buy property and existing tenant leases; requires additional cost to keep temporary HQ open during construction = Estimated total project cost of $22.45 million, not enough funding under current project scope; project completion roughly 10+ years

We encourage you to come to BOTH the Law & Public Safety Committee Public Hearing on March 18th at 9am, and the City Council Meeting on April 3rd at 5:30pm for Citizens’ Forum to share your thoughts. Each person will be given two minutes to address council.

Thank you for your advocacy – we appreciate it and we look forward to seeing you at City Hall next week!
