2016 Neighborhood Summit
Making Your Place
Making Your Place
March 12, 2016
Cintas Center, Xavier University
The Neighborhood Summit is THE annual event which brings together hundreds of community leaders and volunteers, city officials and non-profits in a day long series of seminars and workshops aimed at helping citizens work effectively together to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods. Last year's event was attended by over 600 people.
This year'’s theme is focused on Placemaking. Multiple tracks will look at the challenges we face and the benefits we reap in our 52 neighborhoods:
- ACCESSIBILITY: access and linkages
- COMMUNITY: sociability, inclusivity and community assets
- VITALITY: activation, revitalization, and economic development
- PLACE: comfort, image and the physical environment
The annual awards ceremony this year will include announcing the winners of the City Manager's "Engage Cincy" initiative.
Please join community leaders for dinner, Friday March 11, hosted by the Community Building Institute at Xavier University.
Invest in Neighborhoods' 14th annual Summit would not be possible without the hard work of our Summit partners: the City of Cincinnati, the Community Building Institute, LISC and the CDC Association.

Collaboration Erases Boundaries was the them of the 2015 Neighborhood Summit on March 7 and the Cintas Center. Well over 500 people were on hand to hear Mayor John Cranley and Greater Cincinnati CEO Kathy Merchant kick off activities early in the morning. Attendees then participated in workshops featuring how to make collaboration work to solve neighborhood issues. The highlight of lunch was presentation of the inaugural Neighborhood Awards.
