Bring your ideas for a NEW AVONDALE!
As part of the Avondale Quality of Life initiative, Avondale residents in collaboration with the Avondale Development Corporation, Local Initiative Support Corporation, Community Building Institute and the City of Cincinnati are hosting a neighborhood planning session.
The Transforming Avondale: Community Planning Session is designed and created to show challenges and issues faced by a community, as well as successes and assets of the community. The plan also establishes measurable goals and targets to help improve the community and move it forward.
At the community planning session, volunteers share personal stories of experiences in Avondale and discuss information they had gathered from interviews conducted over the last year. These interviews were held with Avondale residents, employees, community leaders, politicians, religious leaders and more. The interviews allowed residents from different backgrounds and experiences to share their perspective on strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats in Avondale.
Avondale Night Walk is an active living workshop hosted by Avondale Development Corporation in collaboration with GoVibrant, Cincinnati Parks, Green Umbrella, ArtWorks and Landor. The event serves multiple purposes, first helping to enhance community-police relations, as residents walk with Cincinnati Police Officers through Avondale hot spot territories, but secondly as active living and leisure activities with our glow themed party in the park after the walk.
The event will consist of constellation light displays, glow games and activities, music and line dancing and preview to the 2018 Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo.
The event starts at 4PM at Fleischmann Gardens Park (Corner of Forest Avenue & Washington Avenue), and ends with a party at Irving Park (near Colonial Village Apartments).
Join us for our annual 5K to support families throughout the community.
