Good afternoon, 

I wanted to let everyone know that the boulder has been set in place. It is on Paddock Road, across the street from Clearbrook Dr. Attached is a picture. 

This garden area will eventually be landscaped to make it more attractive. Attached is a photo that was taken right after the placement!

You Have the Green Light: Share Your Transportation Needs to Shape Our Region’s Future


Calling anyone and everyone! Whether you drive, ride, pedal or walk, your input is needed to guide the future of transportation improvements in our community and across the region.   


The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments, also known as OKI, recently launched a survey on November 30, to understand what short and long-term transportation needs and issues are most important to you. The online survey is short, taking only about 5 minutes to complete, and will be open through Friday, January 8.


Make your opinion count by participating in this survey! Click here to take the survey. Or you can find the survey on OKI’s Facebook page found at For more information about the 2040 plan, visit


Your input will be used by OKI to update the region’s 2040 Plan, which identifies the transportation projects and programs to be implemented over the next 25 years. Since transportation and economic development are closely connected, the 2040 Plan helps advance our region and improve quality of life for all of us who live, work and play here.


The goal of this survey is to gather as much community input as possible, so feel free to forward this email to your friends, family and networks. Thank you in advance for your participation!

City Manager Seeks Your Input on Next Police Chief
The City Manager wants to hear from you. He is asking residents and community stakeholders to participate in the police chief selection process by taking, and sharing, a brief survey.
The survey is now available on the
City’s website until Nov.
The position of Cincinnati police chief means so much from a safety perspective, but it also represents a great deal symbolically for Cincinnati and the
region. While the decision ultimately resides with the City Manager, it will not be made in a vacuum.
Over the last several weeks, City Manager Black has spent time meeting and gathering feedback from community representatives, rank and file officers,
clergy, business representatives and policy-makers about the police chief vacancy. This work will continue.
“The more feedback and perspective received, from all segments of the community, the better,” said City Manager Black. He continued, “I do not want this
feedback process to be limited, which is why I am inviting the community to comment on the desired qualities of Cincinnati’s next police chief.”
Additionally, while the manager would enjoy the opportunity to personally speak with each Cincinnati police officer; such an approach is simply not practical.
This is why a similar survey is being offered to all Cincinnati Police Department staff.
These surveys are one of the avenues the City will use to systematically gather input from the various stakeholders of Cincinnati. Additional information
about these efforts is forthcoming.
The information gathered through these surveys will help inform the police chief selection process. Black concluded, “Because of the vacancies at the
chief, assistant chief and captain ranks it is important we move swiftly and thoroughly with this process, and we will.”

Subject:Community meeting & Halloween Party

Good afternoon to all, 

A reminder that there is a community meeting on Monday, October 26, 2015, 7 pm, Avon Woods Nature Center. 

In attendance will be representatives from District 4, Engine 9 and a speaker about the Parks Levy. Hope to see you there. 

Next Friday, October 30, 2015, is the Paddock Hills Halloween Party for kids at the Avon Woods Nature Center. It will start at 6 pm and end approximately 8:30 pm. 

We will have pizza, fruit, water, crafts, & goody bags. Rachel, the naturalist at the Nature Center, will do a creature feature & a night hike starting approximately 6:30 pm. Please wear sturdy shoes. In the event of rain, there will not be a night hike!

All children must be accompanied by an adult. Also, since I have been asked this question by others, Cincinnati’s Trick or Treat day & hours are October 31, 2015 from 6 pm to 8 pm. Generally homes in Paddock Hills with their outside lights on, are handing out treats. 

Hope to see you there!
