Opening a Business

We are happy you are interested in coming to our city! Our tag line “Where the City meets the Country” is not just a slogan.  It really captures the idea that we have every amenity available to us, but we can escape to the peace and quiet just by coming home to enjoy the laid back, almost rural community with friendly neighbors and beautiful vistas.

Alexandria is a great place to live, work, and shop.  We’re just about 30 minutes from Downtown Cincinnati and the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.  We are less than that to great shopping, either at regional malls, the Alexandria Village Green Shopping Center, and dozens of locally owned and operated specialty retailers and restaurants.  Our school systems, both public and private, are among the best.


If you are interested in opening a business in Alexandria, the first thing would be to call the city at 859-635-4125 and ask to speak with the City Administrator, David Plummer, about the site you are interested in to see if your business meets the zoning requirements for this particular site.  He will be happy to help you with all aspects of setting up a business in Alexandria.
