For new, job-creating advanced manufacturing. For neighborhood-serving business districts. For a range of affordable housing options.

The Port views environmental stewardship, which includes remediation and site readiness, as among the most important services it provides to the region. Since its founding, The Port has cleaned up over 250 acres and has impacted nearly 50 properties in Hamilton County through environmental cleanup and assessment. While much of this work is focused on eliminating environmental threats, it is also a strategy to actively reduce exposure for vulnerable communities.
