Compost Cincy has officially been closed. The City of Cincinnati has taken over the site and will start removing the material March 8, 2014. The material will be hauled away to a dump site and should take a couple of weeks. The city is working with the Ohio EPA.
Neighborhood Enhancement Program Coming to Carthage August
The Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) is a 90-day collaborative effort between City departments, Carthage residents and Carthage organizations and Churches.
The NEP focuses on developing Carthage assets. Integrated service delivery includes:
- Concentrating building code enforcement
- Identifying and “cooling down” crime hot spots
- Cleaning up streets, sidewalks, and vacant lots
- Beautifying landscapes, streetscapes and public right of way
- Engaging property owners and residents to create and sustain a more livable neighborhood
Through focused, integrated and concentrated City service delivery and Carthage Civic League, Inc. efforts, partners seek to improve the quality of life in our community. The targeted areas are identified through an analysis of building code violations, vacant buildings, disorder and drug calls, drug arrests, as well as incidence of graffiti, junk autos, litter and weeds.
This is another chance for you to volunteer and make our community better. The Carthage Civic League, Churches, local businesses and the city of Cincinnati have been working on this since January. We have spent hours putting this together and now it is your time to jump in. Watch for the opportunity, we may be knocking on your door.
Tuesday August 7th – 6pm, 5/3rd Bank Parking Lot. Join your neighbors in fun, games, food and music. Special Circus Entertainment!! It’s a great time to meet local firemen and police officers. Bring a chair and enjoy the evening.
Cincinnati City Council recently amended an ordinance concerning “residential storage.” These amendments strictly dictate what can and cannot be left in sight in residents’ yards.
