Tri-State Trails is an initiative of Green Umbrella and funded by Interact for Health. Tri-State Trails is a coalition of trail advocates, a physical network of trails, and a vision to connect the Greater Cincinnati region. Our mission is to connect people and places via a regional trails network that promotes vibrant communities through equitable access to active transportation and outdoor recreation.

Southbank Partners is a coalition of government, business and community leaders in the Northern Kentucky Ohio River cities of Bellevue, Covington, Dayton, Ludlow, Newport and Fort Thomas. It serves as a community and economic development organization that coordinates activity with the cities that lie along Northern Kentucky’s bank of the Ohio River. Our purpose is to help the cities in any way we can, but especially through promoting and coordinating development activities, fostering teamwork and collaboration, and providing a unified voice for the partner cities in advocating common positions to state and federal governments, as well as to other communities.
