A sweeping history into the who, what, when and how of NEST – and the main character who got the organization off the ground.
September 29th 2006 was a good day in Northside. NEST – originally incorporated as Cincinnati Northside Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation (CNCURC) – was born.
Northsider Stefanie Sunderland, the current Executive Director of NEST, has long been committed to serving the Northside community. Her deep knowledge and concern for the neighborhood led to establishing CNCURC (now NEST).
Sunderland was driven to target areas for redevelopment where blighted properties and absentee landlords defined streets, and so the organization took hold.
