"We are in the planning stages for the Urban Campus and are seeking input on the kinds
of programs and services residents, business and community leaders desire to see included
in the planning for the campus. The campus is a long term commitment so our planning
must encompass short term and long range issues, said Gateway President/CEO G. Edward
The Urban Campus partnership includes Gateway, the Covington Independent Public Schools,
Kenton County Public Library, the Gateway Foundation, City of Covington, Covington
Business Council, Kenton County Fiscal Court and Southbank Partners, TANK and Kenton
