OKI is currently working on the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan and we need to hear from as many people in our region as possible. The Plan will guide regional transportation improvements through the year 2050 by defining the policies, program and projects that will be implemented over the next 30 years. With this survey, we are asking for your input on what transportation needs and issues are most important to you.
 
Please take a few moments to complete the short survey: https://publicinput.com/6222/ 
or visit www.oki.org and click on the 2050 survey image. 
Survey closes on February 10, 2020.

Feel free to share/forward the survey link to your friends, family, the residents within your community.

Kennedy Heights Montessori Center has been part of our community since 1965, when it began as a Parent Co-op in the basement of the Presbyterian Church. Now in the beautiful Kennedy Heights Arts Center Annex, it is one of Cincinnati's premier early childhood education resources. Mark your calendar for the New Family Information Night on February 4, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.

Of additional note: Enrollment of Kennedy Heights residences has decreased over the years. In the hopes of keeping the school in touch with its roots, there is funding through an anonymous donor to assist Kennedy Heights children who seek to attend KHMC. Speak with school staff to learn more.

In 2019, the difficult decision was made to cancel the long-standing tradition of the Kennedy Heights Progressive Dinner. The decision was not made lightly, but was naturally met with great disappointment from many neighbors. An ad hoc committee of six met to discuss its future. The committee researched past dinners, talked to members of the planning committee, studied the results of past dinners and talked with Liz Blume of the Xavier University Community Building Institute.

For the long term, the committee is recommending convening small groups of residents to discuss the dinner in a larger context. They recommend that Kennedy Heights recruit leaders from different areas of the neighborhood for ongoing development. They have several ideas of how to "relaunch" the event in Fall 2020, but they need neighborhood participation. 

If you are interested in carrying on this well-loved tradition, please reach out to Steven Greiser at slgrieser@gmail.com
