** Zoning Variance Notice **

At the April 19th, 2017 MWCC Public Meeting McNicholas High School will request a vote on their desired zoning variances. Their application is for conditional use approval under Cincinnati zoning for stadium lighting and a variance for the height of the light poles.

Please attend this meeting and give us your input. It starts at 7:00 p.m. at the Mt Washington Recreation Center, 1715 Beacon St. Email us at info@mwcc.org if you have any questions. Those voting must be paid members of the Mt. Washington Community Council. Membership is $7/year.

We hope to see you there!

** PUBLIC NOTICE **

During our next MWCC community meeting on March 15th the board will be seeking community approval to amend our by-laws.

Specifically we are looking to change our fiscal year. Currently we operate a January through December calendar. We are looking to change to a July 1st – June 30th fiscal year.

This change will allow us to match the City of Cincinnati’s fiscal year, which is ideal since the city is our largest financial provider. And it will also offer new board members time to understand our finances before crafting our yearly budget.

Current provision:
Section 8.04. Fiscal Year. The fiscal year for MWCC shall commence January 1 and end December 31.

Proposed Amendment:
Section 8.04. Fiscal Year. The fiscal year for MWCC shall commence July 1 and end June 30.

We hope to see everyone on March 15th, 7 p.m. at the Rec Center.

Zoning Change Request

If you have not already heard, our upcoming members meeting on December 21st will include a review of plans from Heathsource for their proposed expansion of their current facility.

We would like to invite our neighbors to this meeting, where HealthSource of Ohio will be presenting their multi-million dollar redevelopment plans to renovate their current building at the corner of Beechmont Avenue and Beechcrest Place. All are welcome to attend, give input and ask questions.

To proceed with their proposed development, HealthSource is seeking to change the zoning of the home (pictured) from residential to commercial use, so they may meet the cities parking requirement. The home would be torn down.

Although the vote of the MWCC Membership is non-binding, the city does take it into consideration when reviewing such developments.

Our meeting begins at 7:00 pm at the Mt Washington Recreation Center located at 1715 Beacon St, Cincinnati, OH 45230

As a reminder, residents must be members of the Mt Washington Community Council in order to vote on issues.

You will hear arguments from both sides- The developer, HealthSource, who is seeking the zoning variance, and a resident of Beechcrest Place, Julie Rimer, who is against approving such variance.

If you would like to become an MWCC member, you can download the application here. If you have any questions about filling out the form, please feel free to contact info@mwcc.org
