There has been significant attention to recent developments in the West
End with respect to FC Cincinnati (FCC). Given the history of the West
End, this is an emotional and sensitive subject for many. We wish to assure
West End residents and concerned citizens of the great City of Cincinnati
that the leadership of the West End Community Council (WECC) has
established the necessary relationship to fully engage with FCC.

As a community council representing the West End, we are aware of the
concerns that face residents, schools, businesses and the entire West End
community. Community engagement is a priority for the WECC. We
remain committed to an open process for the community and FCC to
explore the potential for the stadium.

We appreciate the interest and desires of organizations and concerned
citizens external to the West End in providing input to the potential FCC
stadium and its impact. We respectfully request that the WECC and West
End community be allowed to represent the views and desires of our
