Welcome!

Welcome to the Mt. Lookout Community Council website! The MLCC is a non-profit, volunteer organization with a mission to inform, serve, and improve the quality of life for Mt.

NEXT MLCC MEETING: June 20th

We hope you can join us for our next MLCC bi-monthly meeting. Continue to check our website for updates regarding location or log in details.

Our bi-monthly Community Meetings typically take place on the third Monday of every other month. Join us to learn more about what’s happening in our community and share your thoughts, questions and ideas.


PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT MEETING

When: May 11 | 6:30pm

Where: Christ the King Parish Center 3223 Linwood Ave

The MLCC is working with the City of Cincinnati to prepare an addendum to Mt. Lookout’s Urban Design Plan, which is the document that governs the character of buildings that can be developed in our neighborhood’s business district (ie. Mt. Lookout Square).
The addendum will update which buildings contribute to the district’s character and which do not. It will be used to help guide the City’s decision-making regarding future development and redevelopment in the Square.

To gather the community’s input, officials from the City of Cincinnati’s Department of Planning & Engagement are holding this in-person public engagement meeting. They will review with us the draft addendum and its recommendations.
The MLCC Board requests that neighborhood residents and business owners review the draft addendum and attend the meeting on Wednesday, May 11 to learn more about the issues, ask questions, and weigh in on the proposed changes. Residents will have the opportunity to provide feedback on whether or not we agree with the content of the addendum.
If residents cannot attend the public engagement meeting, they will have until Friday, May 20 to send comments to either:

The City will use the feedback they receive to make any necessary changes before finalizing the addendum. From there, it will be advanced through the City’s review & approval process.
Stay tuned for updates. If you have questions or comments, please email the MLCC at president@mtlookout.org


CARE FOR THE SQUARE

All volunteers under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.

Gardening gloves are recommended.

JOIN THE MLCC

The MLCC is primarily 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 maintenance, neighborhood events such as our annual Fall Festival, support for the Ault Park fireworks, and managing other community-building programs.

This year, we’re celebrating Mt. Lookout’s 151st Anniversary! To help commemorate this milestone, we have set a goal to reach 151 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 purchasing an annual MLCC membership for $20. Thank you for your support!
