CINCINNATI — The Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce will present their latest economic impact report Wednesday afternoon, and one person in the chamber said the new numbers are "significantly greater than last years."

Kelly Adamson, the executive director of the OTR Chamber of Commerce, said locally owned businesses are thriving in OTR.

"To us it's the most exciting thing to see these businesses that have been in Over-the-Rhine for 5 or 10 years open up new businesses now," Adamson said. "We're seeing the success of return on investment that we've all worked so hard for."

She also said the inclusion of diverse businesses and retail stores has helped boost the economic impact of the neighborhood.

The chamber will also announce the location of their new headquarters at the 3 p.m. meeting Wednesday.
