Our 45th Annual Luminaria was a wonderful event! While we thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the luminaria lighting up our community – nearly 18,000 of them! – we were even more delighted to see so many friends and neighbors walking and driving around the neighborhood taking in the holiday cheer.
We sold a record 750 kits this year, one of our best years ever. The money raised from the event will be directly reinvested into the care and keeping of Mt. Lookout, such as landscaping in the Square and sponsorship of community events. 
We thank you all for your continued support and hope you have a happy, healthy holiday season!


Welcome to the Mt. Lookout Community Council website.  Here, you will find information about who we are, what we do and topics of interest to our community.

Our bi-monthly MLCC Community Meetings take place on the third Monday of every other month (see our meeting schedule at the bottom of this page).  Meetings start at 7:30 pm and are held at the Christ the King Parish Center, unless otherwise noted.  Please join us to learn more about what’s happening in our community and to share your thoughts, questions and ideas. In between meetings, you are welcome to send any questions and comments to our Board at


This year, we’re celebrating Mt. Lookout’s 150th Anniversary! To help commemorate this milestone, we have set a goal to reach 150 new or renewing members of the Mt. Lookout Community Council. If you haven’t joined or renewed your annual membership yet, please help us reach this goal by clicking here to submit your $20 payment (your name will be captured by the payment system). 

The MLCC is funded through annual memberships as well as fundraising events such as Luminaria. Funds are directly reinvested in the community and have been used for Mt Lookout Square’s landscaping and beautification, the “Welcome to Mt Lookout” banners throughout the neighborhood, the annual golf outing and Fall Festival, the Ault Park fireworks and other community programs.


The Mt. Lookout Community Council has been working closely with the City of Cincinnati to address demolition, lot split and development concerns raised by our community. More information about these issues is provided on our Development page.
