Building a walkable business district in College Hill.

College Hill Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation is committed to revitalizing the Hamilton Avenue business district.

COVID-19 UPDATE

This may cause us to pause, but it won’t force us to move backwards. And when we start moving again, everybody is coming with us. 

We are constantly working to support our local businesses. As one supportive measure, we implemented rent abatements for the month of April for all CHCURC owned properties. 

We stand by our mission in times of crisis. We are committed to building a resilient business district and every action we take is in order to give our neighborhood businesses the opportunity to continue thriving.

Please consider donating to our campaign: Alive and Thrive. We need your support to keep the businesses of College Hill alive.  

Alive and Thrive is our response to an unprecedented time in our history. Our goal is to raise $20,000. One quarter of donations are put into the College Hill Emergency Business Fund, which will be available for businesses in our neighborhood who need help in paying staff, rent, or utilities. The other three quarters of donations give us the ability to be more flexible with our commercial and residential tenants. Every dollar we raise past $20,000 will be put into the Emergency Business Fund. 

FOCUSED ON BUILDING A STRONG BUSINESS DISTRICT  
COMMITTED TO INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC  DEVELOPMENT 
ATTRACTING LOCAL TALENT TO BE FORCES OF ENTREPRENEURIAL GOOD
