Clifton Area Neighborhood School Visioning

On the evening of October 24, representatives from CTM, CANS Advisory Group, Cincinnati Public Schools, and the Clifton Recreation Center convened a public forum to gather input and have discussion.  The purpose of the meeting was to build consensus recommendations of the collective community in the re-establishment of school operations at the Clifton School, including use of the Rawson property. All community members and those interested in the re-establishment of the school were welcomed to attend.

Greg Otis from AIA facilitated the event.

Click here to see the presentation that happened during the event.

Following the meeting, feedback from the community was collected and shared with Greg Otis in order that he could prepare a final report on the community engagement process. Please click here to read the final report. During January 2018, this report has been provided to Cincinnati Public Schools Administration and the Clifton Recreation Center.

Below a photo of the nice turnout we had for the discussions. Thank you to all who attended.
