The city chose East Westwood, Westwood and the West End as the 2017 Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) recipients.
CINCINNATI – Mayor John Cranley and City Manager Harry Black joined community leaders from East Westwood, Westwood and the West End this morning to announce the 2017 Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) is coming to those neighborhoods.
These are the 23rd and 24th communities to participate in the award-winning program. The NEP will be in East Westwood/Westwood from March through May and in the West End from mid-August to mid-November.
The West End has developed a plan for the community, by the community. The plan was led by Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses in collaboration with community organizations and leaders. The Community Building Institute helped facilitate the planning process.
The development of a neighborhood quality-of-life plan is an important step to getting the community engaged and providing a community-based framework that can be implemented. The community vision is like a roadmap to becoming a healthier, safer and economically stronger neighborhood.

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why our entire community is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The HOUR OF CODE, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 136 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
The event will take place on:
Monday, Dec. 5th, 2016, 6pm-9pm
Taft Information Technology High School
420 Ezzard Charles Dr, Cincinnati, Ohio 45214
The goal is to to bring together organizations, companies, teachers, as well as children from local schools and their parents, to make them aware of IT opportunities in the global world, and to promote IT Education in Cincinnati.
We'll also have a kids competition (elementary school level) for the fastest expert in Code.org's Frozen, with the winner receiving a gift cards.
Complimentary food and refreshments will be provided.
