United North earns statewide honorWritten by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
United North was recently recognized as the Ohio Community Development Corporation (CDC) of the Year.
CEO Terry Glazer received the award from the Ohio CDC Association during a ceremony at the group’s annual meeting in Cincinnati on Oct. 12.
“Community development corporations are the best vehicles for revitalizing neighborhoods, but face new challenges due to decreased funding and capacity,” Glazer told the gathering, according to a news release. “In Toledo, over a dozen community development corporations have been reduced to less than a handful.”
United North formed out of the merger of the Lagrange and NorthRiver development corporations in 2007 and has invested about $33 million in ONE (Olde North End) Village.
