Northeast Suburban Life (Newspaper) - March 17, 1971, Cincinnati, OhioLibrary Ohio Hist Orion society 1982 Volar ave. Columbus Ohio 43211 a ii a ��.i�. A ii. In a a a a answer lies with Small group of dedicated citizens Are Community councils coping with Urban problems How effective Are Cincinnati a suburban Community councils in dealing with the multiplicity of problems which have Arisen in the nation s Citie since the end of world War ii in an attempt to find the answer the charter research Institute of Cincinnati headed by Leonard m. Sive president recently completed a study in which 73 Community organizations were contacted. As stated in the 103 Page report of the study Quot the task proved both tedious and Many appeared to be Little More than paper organizations. Others like the East end Community Council and Westa Csini special report end Community Council proved both alive and Alert. Of 31 questionnaires sent out by mail to groups not reached before Only two responded. Six months was spent by a graduate student of the University of Cincinnati calling upon the designated spokesmen for the various Community organizations. Listings were provided by the better housing league and the Community action commission. Since turn of the Century neighbourhood groups to provide a forum and Force for Community action have existed in one form or another since the turn of the Century. In the earlier years the Community organization was largely composed of a Quot civic club or in the mid-50s the City began to experience new growth development and disruption. Expressways were proposed and begun Industry began relocating and a Boom in housing particularly in apartment buildings took place. The racial composition of the City began shifting with social Impact and the nation entered into an Era of social awareness and political experimentation. The neighbourhood scene also began to shift As new residents replaced old. As a result new Community groups began to form and older groups either disappeared or in some cases were revived to meet the situation. Community councils what emerged from these developments was a changed and enlarged Community Council system each shaped by the area in which it was situated. Two forms developed the Council and the Community forum. The Council usually involves a smaller membership with personal leadership and concept of purpose with emphasis on change and shoring up the social and economic Structure of the neighbourhood. The forum is marked by a larger membership with officers As coordinators rather than leaders and emphasis being on selective civic crisis response. Community councils Are largely in the older areas of the City Many concerning those in the lower income brackets. By contrast Community forums exist in Middle and upper income neighbourhoods. Virtually All forum Type groups Are Independent bodies organized from within the Community by residents. The Community Council has generally been an organization traceable to some Force from outside the neighbourhood. Nineteen such councils were established by the cac during the 1965-66 period. In Many cases the organizer was a resident of the Community. A variety of citizens Community organizations in Cincinnati Are composed of a. Variety of citizens with varying outlooks backgrounds and desires. But. All have a common motivation betterment of the neighbourhood in which they live. Activities and projects Are usually carried on not so much by designated committees As by individuals willing to devote time and energies to the task. Less than be half of one percent of the total City population of 450,000 choose to seek improvement of their neighbourhood Community. They number Only in the hundreds. Continued development of these organizations depends on this Small percentage. Councils and forums appear to be growing in number and branching out into new activities and new responsibilities in the development of Community resources. The research Institute study concludes that the continued existence of these organizations will depend on the residents of the neighbourhoods involved. The Institute listed these comments on the councils and forums located within the areas served by Cincinnati suburban news Pap it s. College Hill forum College Hill forum moderately successful with Strong organizational make up with Over 600 members. More of a crisis oriented body than a social service Agency. The major thrust of the forum is in the area of zoning. It has worked closely with the City planning commission. It has attempted to develop a youth employment Agency and a summer recreation program. Recently began to Deal with housing problems of the area particularly in programs of integrated housing. A forum past chairman made this comment to the Institute Quot we try to involve the whole Community. There is a general apathy problem among people in the area but at least through the forum they have Access to information and an outlet to action that nothing else would provide. The forum fills a Gap just by its East end area Council established in 1962, the Council achieved its greatest support and notoriety in a dispute with the Highway department Over the proposed re location of Columbia pkwy. It won its Case when the Council suggested a substitute plan which would save about 200 Homes in the path of the relocated route. The councils plan was subsequently accepted and endorsed by the City and has since been submitted to state and Federal agencies for funding approval. The Council has been one of the Mac s most effective and Active neighbourhood organizations and the influence it has had on the future of the Community has been monumental. Again this has been largely due to the Effort of a Small nucleus of White and Black residents of the area. Membership is approximately 100. Greater Hyde Park Council founded in 1967 in response to a request by the mayor that each Community establish a Council that could work with the Quot City. It encompasses Oakley Hyde Park and fringe areas of it. Lookout. Now has about 500 members.
