Our Downtown on the Move

Downtown Cincinnati is now home to over 6,000 residents (over 15,000 in the greater market area, which includes OTR, Pendleton and the West End), with more arriving every month as new condos and apartment homes are completed. The Downtown Residents Council works to develop a community atmosphere, conducts projects to improve the quality of life, and voices concerns of residents at City Hall.

We work closely with the Police Department on safety issues and 3CDC on development and promotion efforts.

Help the Police Keep an Eye on Crime

Capt. Doug Wiesman, Commander of the Central Business Section, is asking that any Downtown resident or business owner who wishes to register their external cameras may now do so with the Police Department. This will help the police investigate crimes or suspect activity that may happen within view of the camera. All information will be kept in strictest confidence. To participate, please follow the link below and feel free to share it.

Help Us Stop Graffiti! Call it in!

If you see graffiti on a building, sidewalk, rack, etc. please help us get rid of it ASAP. The longer graffiti stays up, the greater the invitation for more. Please contact 3CDC Safe and Clean Manager David Vissman when you see graffiti. David will dispatch a team to photograph it, report it to the police and remove it. David’s number is 8598-866-5224.

Ambassador Hotline. To contact a 3CDC Safe and Clean Ambassador, call their hotline at: 513-623-3429. In an emergency, always call 911.

Paving the Way

Moving around downtown safely is an issue that a lot of residents are concerned with. If you think a sidewalk is in poor condition and a possible trip hazard, the best way to report the problem is to use the City’s Citizen Service Request options. That includes calling 513.591.6000, visiting www.5916000.com, or using the Fix It Cincy! app on a smart phone.
