Neighborhood Project Suggestions

We want your ideas!

Every two years, each Community Council can submit up to 3 projects to the City of Cincinnati that they would like to see happen in their neighborhood through a process called Community Budget Requests (CBR). Those projects are then reviewed by the appropriate department to determine if it is feasible to complete in upcoming budget years (i.e. repaving a road would go to the Department of Transportation and Engineering).

The formal process for submitting projects is delegated to Community Councils, however, this online form was created in order to continue to broaden the City’s outreach regarding the Cincinnati Budget so that anyone can submit project suggestions for their neighborhood. Your ideas will provide the City with important feedback about what your neighborhood needs are.

Please submit your suggestions by October 1, 2018.

If you have an idea that you would like the Civic League officers to present to the city, please contact us to let us know! Email us or attend a Carthage Civic League meeting. (The next meeting will be June 18 at 7:30pm.)
