Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce to host Eggs ‘N Issues: Riverfront Vitality



On July 21 the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce will present Eggs ‘N Issues: Riverfront Vitality from 7:30 - 9 am at Receptions Banquet & Conference Center at 1379 Donaldson Rd. in  Erlanger, Kentucky.
   
Jack Moreland, president of Southbank Partners, will discuss the organization’s efforts to revitalize the Urban Core through economic development, promotion of tourism, and fostering urban living and connectivity.

Southbank Partners’ strength comes from their interlocal agreement, representing Bellevue, Covington, Dayton, Ft. Thomas, Ludlow and Newport along with Kenton and Campbell counties for development of the riverfront.

Southbank works with other area partners, the state of Kentucky and the federal government to promote the needs of their member cities.

Most recently, Southbank Partners assisted Newport and Ludlow in applying for $1.6 million from the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) which will be used to build pedestrian bridges and walking paths along Riverfront  Commons.

Attendees will learn how their efforts to date have impacted the region, as well as learn more about future growth and development.

The cost to attend the event is $20 for NKY Chamber members and $40 for future Chamber members.

Reservations can be made by calling 859.578.8800 or online at web.nkychamber.com/events. Pre-registration is required.
