Residents of Mt. Washington formed the Mt. Washington Community Council (MWCC) in 1925 to help represent the needs and interests of the community, which, at that time, felt like a long way, physically and otherwise, from governing bodies in downtown Cincinnati.


MWCC has a board of directors with nine elected members, consisting of residents, business or property owners. Three board directors are elected annually with the term of three years. Members of MWCC join annually, starting in January, with $7 dues. Members vote on all motions and budgets and can lead and serve on committees related to Mt. Washington as needed.


MWCC, continues to empower Mt. Washington residents by representing the views and opinions of community members to the city’s governing agencies, as well as, educating residents on any relevant policies and actions taken by city leaders. MWCC brokers the city’s Neighborhood Support Program (NSP) grant – about $6,500 – annually, through an open vetting and voting process with membership.

MWCC assists Mt. Washington residents, property and business owners in dealing with zoning, land use, traffic, safety, beautification, crime prevention, recreation and many other issues affecting our community.

MWCC organizes the Pumpkin Chuck, held the first Saturday after Halloween, every year.


Member meetings are the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm. Board meetings are the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm. All are welcome. Use the contact form on this site to ask to receive a meeting invite.
