In the Spring of 1961 a group of Clifton residents began meeting to explore how a community within the city could express its needs and goals within the framework of city government. The result was the Clifton Town Meeting-an official community council recognized by the City of Cincinnati. CTM, as it is commonly referred to, is the planning and policy organization for the residents of Clifton.
The CTM Board meets on the first Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the Clifton Recreation Center on McAlpin Avenue.
Mail: PO Box 20042, Cincinnati, OH 45220
The next regular CTM meeting will be on June 3, 2013 at 7PM and will be held at the Clifton Recreation Center on McAlpin Ave.
Please meet at the corner of McAlpin and Middleton at 10:30am on Monday, May 27 for the annual Memorial Day Parade. The parade will start promptly at 11:00am. There will be a grill-out and fun at Mt Storm Park following the parade.
The Clifton Probasco Fountain Committee has established the following goal:
To restore this historic fountain to its original condition and improve public access and enjoyment to this iconic gift from Henry Probasco to the Clifton Community.
Input on the restoration and possible relocation of the fountain was requested from the community on several topics, including: should the fountain be moved and if so possible sites, architectural enhancements such as lighting or a plaza, etc. As a result of the community input due dilligence on the part of the committee, a recommendation was made to CTM from the commiittee to move the fountain approximately 7.5 feet west and 2 feet north. CTM passed a resolution to accept the recommendation and sent a letter to the City of Cincinnati informing them of our support for the restoration and relocation of the fountain (Click here to see the letter).
The Clifton Probasco Fountain Committee was formed by CTM to work with the community and City in the project to restore the Clifton Probasco Fountain. Committee members include Joyce Rich, and Tony Sizemore from CTM; Mark Mckillip from the Clifton Cultural Arts Center; Dick Druffel and David Mann from the Clifton Community Fund; Jan Brown Checco, Karen Imbus, Mary Jo Vesper, and Ted Johanson, interested Clifton residents; and Jamie Accurso and Joel Koopman from the City of Cincinnati Facility Management Department.
On April 12, 2010, Library officials submitted a proposal to the Clifton Town Meeting to relocate the Clifton Branch Library from its present small rental facility located at 351 Ludlow Avenue to the Parkview Manor, the former "Boss" Cox home, located at 3400 Brookline Avenue. The Clifton Town Meeting Board voted to support the continuing evaluation of the advantages and disadvantages of the relocation. At a subsequent meeting, members of the Clifton Business District also supported this proposal.
