The City of Cincinnati Department of Community Development (DCD) has been named Community Development Department of the Year by the Ohio Conference of Community Development, Inc. (OCCD), an association of more than 160 community and economic development professionals across the state.

DCD was among five winners in the OCCD's inaugural Member Awards. DCD's director, Michael Cervay, also was named as a co-winner in the Community Development Professional of the Year category.

The award recipients will be honored at OCCD's Annual Summer Banquet on July 24 at the Holiday Inn Worthington.
