Why? Each year, the 51 Cincinnati Area Councils receive Neighborhood Support Program (NSP) funds from the Cincinnati City Council through the Community Development office. This year each Council will receive $5000.00 to be used by the East End Area Council (EEAC) to enhance the quality of life in the East End.

What? We want to know what you think - your “wish list” for our community. Any resident 18 years or older can submit and idea and cast a vote. This year, the proposal includes funding for cleaning up Riverside Drive, the holiday parties for kids and families and LeBlond Center, and 4 music scholarships for four students at the Riverside Academy.

How? Contact EEAC President, Laurie Keleher at or write to the EEAC, PO Box 26182, 45216.

When? A vote will be taken at the February meeting. Feb 1st, 2010 at7 pm at the LeBlond Recreation Center. Please come and make your voice heard!

Guest Speakers

Police Report

The Captain presented crime stats with 8% lower rates in 2009 than 2008. In Dec 09, the 8 reported offenses were all property related. Breaking and entry is the biggest concern. There was a discussion about Hamilton County early release of 21,000 inmates and how repeat offenders affect street crime in our area. Consideration was given to distributing pictures of persons wanted for questioning. Web sites are becoming an important tool for law enforcement and can facilitate the distribution of photographic images. Complaints were heard about on going littering in the Garden District and the need for code enforcement. Go to to get text message alerts on crime as it happens!
