Northside Business Association (NBA)                                

The Northside Business Association was founded as the Northside Business Club and has been serving Northside since 1907. We're the official voice with the City of Cincinnati for the Northside Business District. The Northside Business Association works hard to create and maintain a resurgent atmosphere in the Northside Business District that has helped spawn redevelopment and to be a resource for all Northside Businesses and works to continually improve our neighborhood.

The NBA's list of accomplishments is long and includes: The streetscape project on Hamilton Avenue; the Northside Business District parking lots; Hamilton Avenue sidewalk cleaning; the 4th of July festival; lighting Hoffner Park for the holidays; the Hamilton Avenue planters; creation of the Northside Citizens on Patrol; Northside Business District WiFi; the Northside Website; the Northside Brochure; the South Block welcome sign; numerous cleanups; Northside night at the WCET Action Auction; and the Northside Art Sale. We've also participated in: the Northside Land Use Plan; blocking a proposed Walgreens on Hamilton Avenue; Bits & Pieces; The Northsider; the ArtWorks Mural on Hamilton Avenue; getting McPerry's torn down; the Northside Farmers Market; Northside Radio Ads (featuring Jerry Spinger no less: 1, 2, & 3); Northside CityBeat Ads.
