Hamilton County commissioners are giving the go-ahead to a financing plan to advance a music venue at The Banks. The board voted 2-1 with Commissioner Stephanie Summerow Dumas dissenting, though she declined to say why.
Hamilton County commissioners and Cincinnati Council's Budget and Finance Committee Monday selected the Cincinnati Symphony (CSO) and Music and Event Management, Inc. (MEMI) as its choice to develop a music venue at The Banks.
Hamilton County commissioners could vote in June on which company will build and operate a Banks concert venue. The Joint Banks Steering Committee recommended MEMI, the subsidiary of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, in early May, but commissioners haven't voted on that or talked with the city.
