CityBeat: Yes on Issue 2

By Staff · October 30th, 2013 · Election
Issue 2 is another levy renewal that goes directly to the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.

If approved by voters, it wouldn’t increase taxes, although it would keep property taxes $10 higher for every $100,000 of home value.

That’s a pretty good deal for an institution that is so profitable and prominent for Cincinnati.

A study from the University of Cincinnati Economic Center found the zoo had a $143 million impact on the Cincinnati area in 2012 — representing nearly 3.9 times the zoo’s total spending — and produced 1,700 jobs and nearly $1.6 million in tax revenue for Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
