Your Cincinnati Chamber announced a collective backing of a 0.8% Hamilton County Sales Tax to support investment into our transportation system yesterday. This sales tax will fully fund the ReinventingMetro plan that SORTA has developed and produce a substantial amount of investment to address the vast infrastructure need we have in Hamilton County. This is an effort that will take the entire community working together, and we are now on our way. Learn more about Issue 22 and get involved here.
Last week, we gave you a sneak peek at some of the interactive art installations that will transform Cincinnati during BLINK®. Get excited for performances from 80 bands and 45 interactive light displays. My personal favorite? The Rainbow Bridge, a 15,000-pound installation with 25,000 LED lights, coming all the way from Burning Man to connect Cincinnati to Northern Kentucky. If you are a local business and would like to be a part of BLINK, get your BLINK® community celebration kit and guide the way as visitors explore art and light.
We know relocating to a new city can be tough – that is why we are having the biggest welcome home party for hundreds of Cincy newcomers on Nov. 7. The Hello Cincy Welcome Event will help new residents discover ways to make their new city feel more like home, and connect them to each other as well social and community groups. Early bird pricing ends on Oct. 5, so if you know someone new to the region, tell them to register now.
