Community Priority Requests

Community Priority Requests For 2013-14 Budget

It's that time again to start the Community Priority Requests (CPR) process!

The CPR is a process in which the City obtains information from Community Councils on projects that are paramount to the preservation and/or revitalization of each neighborhood. A letter with details on the process has been sent to all Community Councils.

The information on communities' priority projects is reviewed by appropriate City Departments during their budget preparation. Potential funding options for the priority projects are considered, and recommendations on projects will be made to City Council in the proposed 2013-2014 budget.

Each City Department will review the requests received and determine which projects can be accommodated in the 2013-2014 budget.

A Project Disposition Report will be prepared during the summer, and the Community Councils will be notified of the status of their projects in mid-November.

City Council will determine which projects will be funded during the budget process.

An orientation meeting is being held on Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2012, to explain the process, answer questions and distribute application packages. The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Griesel Room located on the seventh floor of Two Centennial Plaza, 805 Central Ave., Cincinnati, OH.

We look forward to meeting with Community Council representatives at the orientation meeting. In the meantime, if you need any additional information, please contact Alex Peppers at 513-352-4855 or
