The Mt. Lookout Community Council had a great meeting in June with near record attendance. Thank you to all who came and participated!

The primary topic on our agenda focused on the status of home demolition and lot splits in Mt. Lookout and Hyde Park. Representatives from the Department of City Planning provided us with an overview of the issue, discussed where things stand right now, and what the next steps will be. A summary of the information shared is provided on our new Demolition and Lot Splits page. Be sure to check this page often as we will be posting new information as it becomes available.

ADDITIONAL COMMUNITY UPDATES


  • Congratulations to Michael Keyser, this year's Mt. Lookout Scholarship Award recipient!

Michael is studying pharmacology and will be a sophomore at Ohio State University. He was chosen as this year's scholarship recipient based on his contribution as a community volunteer and on an essay he wrote about the value of volunteerism in the community. Requirements for consideration also included a graduating GPA of 2.5 or above on a 4.0 scale or numerical equivalent, and membership to the Mt. Lookout Community Council. Since 1980, the Mt. Lookout Scholarship Award has been presented to individuals who are pursuing post-secondary education studies at an accredited college, technical school, or community college. Scholarship funds may be applied toward any expense directly related to post-secondary education: tuition, books, housing, or other reasonable and customary expenses. The Mt. Lookout Scholarship is a 501c3 organization and is supported by fundraisers such as the annual Mt. Lookout Community Golf Scramble.

  • Lookout Circle Stairs Are Now Open!

    The stairs between Mt. Lookout Square and Lookout Circle are now complete! Work on the stairs was finished late this spring and now that the new railings are in, the stairs are open for business. The new staircase looks fantastic and we love the new planting beds that have been added alongside.
    The Mount Lookout Community would like to give special thanks to City Engineer Richard Pohana and Councilman David Mann david.mann@cincinnati-oh.gov for coordinating and advocating for this project.




  • STOP! at Kroger and Overland

The City recently installed new stop signs at Kroger Avenue and Overland Avenue—about midway down the hill (or up, depending on which direction you are going). Speeding cars have been an on-going problem to Kroger Avenue residents, children and pets and the stop signs were approved to protect their safety. When driving on Kroger, please slow down and be prepared to stop at Overland.   (ADD A PIC OF THE NEW STOP SIGNS IF WE HAVE ONE – I CAN TRY TO TAKE ONE)



  • MLCC Community Meetings
