City land sale to help Evanston nonprofit

Cincinnati City Council on June 26 agreed to sell a piece of property to an Evanston nonprofit for a planned expansion and parking lot project.

The City will sell 0.157 acres of vacant land at 3328 Montgomery Road to Hope Offered to People Everywhere (HOPE) for $1, which will allow the affiliate of God's Greater Glory Apostolic Church to construct a new entrance to its building, a dedicated sanctuary, and an expansion that can accommodate its educational, child care, food pantry, and job training programs for children and families.

HOPE is currently raising $200,000 for the project with the help of area churches.

The City had owned the property since 1995, and it had been used as a 12-space surface parking lot that generated no revenue.
