The Roselawn Community Council, Inc. - Roselawn - A Great Neighborhood in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio
Roselawn Home
Roselawn Development Initiatives

In executing the mission of the Roselawn Community Council, to advance the quality of life in the neighborhood, the Community Council has employed a number of strategies to engage, inform, and mobilize the imagination and action of our community: business owners, their employees, and their customers, residents, and potential developers.

The following listing categorizes RCC efforts over the past few years into "Business District" and "Park." It is important to note that we see the viability and fate of the residential, business, and recreational areas as inextricably intertwined at a core level. Thus, those efforts that specifically promote the Business District without doubt contribute to the ambiance of the residential portion of the neighborhood. Likewise, Blockwatch and Beautification, and individual homeowner property care, sustain our neighborhood's positive image for customers and investors who frequent our Business District.

Public facilities like the Ball Fields at Roselawn Park draw local as well as regional guests to Roselawn. Roselawn Park contains significant potential for promoting our neighborhood as a desirable place to live, work, or visit. Thus, our ongoing investment in the space at Roselawn Park demonstrates that we view it as a critical element in defining the quality of life in Roselawn, for our residents as well as the large numbers of guests who attend tournament and championship games held at the facility. While geographically contained within Roselawn, we see and promote Roselawn Park as an important aesthetic and recreational resource for three neighborhoods: Bond Hill, Golf Manor and Roselawn.

Our purpose in publishing this information is to expand the spectrum of our informed audience, from funders and developers to individual citizens. We seek your active participation as beneficiaries and protagonists in our efforts to promote the quality of life in Roselawn.
