Committees

Citizens on Patrol

Citizens on Patrol are residents who after being screened and trained by the Cincinnati Police Department, patrol their communities acting as the eyes and ears of the police. They observe and report suspicious activity and/or crimes in progress.

The mission of the Mount Washington Citizens on Patrol is to work in partnership with the Cincinnati Police Department and in conjunction with fellow citizens to improve neighborhood quality-of-life, encourage civic pride and facilitate safety initiatives in our community.

Land Use and Zoning

The Mt. Washington Community Council Land Use and Zoning Committee helps residential, commercial and institutional property owners, as well as business owners, understand and comply with the City of Cincinnati Zoning Code.  As part of that responsibility, the Committee works with permit applicants, upon their request, when they make changes and improvements to their property, so adherence to the Zoning Code is insured.  In addition to providing guidance and education, the MWCC serves as the recognized official voice of the neighborhood when a property or business owner requires a zone change, conditional use approval or zoning variance from the City.  The Committee reviews such matters and makes recommendations to the organization prior to a vote and report to the City.
