The mission of the Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation (HCLRC or Landbank) is to return vacant properties to productive use. In cooperation with governmental and non-governmental partners, as well as private developers, the HCLRC focuses 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.
The Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation (HCLRC), also known as the Landbank, was incorporated by the Hamilton 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.
