LEED Tax Abatement for Homes and Commercial Building Projects in Cincinnati
Greater Cincinnati is blessed with a beautiful pattern of rivers and green hillsides formed thousands of years ago by three different glaciers. These hillsides and river systems give the region its unique visual personality and contribute greatly to our quality of life.
The hillsides are both beautiful and fragile. The Greater Cincinnati area is prone to costly landslides. Concern over this problem is increasing as the scarcity of land gives rise to pressures to build.
The landslide-prone nature of our hillsides is not the only concern. The forested hillsides form ribbons of green open space, offering spectacular views and unique opportunities for outdoor recreation within an urban setting. The hillsides are a valuable element of environmental quality, providing wildlife habitat and migration corridors as well as relief from the pollution caused by urban congestion.
The Hillside Trust actively works to help achieve a balance between the competing interests of development and conservation of our remaining hillside land.
The Hillside Trust accomplishes its mission through work in three broad program areas: research and education, land conservation, and advocacy of responsible land use.
