Our History

Norwood Together started as a small group of residents who wanted to make a positive change in our community. They started by asking other community residents and stakeholders what they wanted for Norwood. In 2017, with the help of LISC Greater Cincinnati, the group that would become Norwood Together completed a Quality of Life Assessment, surveying more than 70 people about our city’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. The Norwood Community Agreement, a 10-year vision for the city, was created from those surveys, and the agreement continues to guide our work.

Since 2017, Norwood Together has organized as a non-profit organization, developed a strategic plan, and recruited a Board of Directors. We have raised $21,500 in individual donations and grant funding and established partnerships with organizations, businesses, and key community leaders.

Norwood Together volunteers have delivered more than 100 welcome bags to new residents to connect newcomers to events, information, organizations and more in Norwood, organized “street sweeps” of Montgomery Road, the city’s main business corridor, and cleaned up our parks.

Working together gets things done.
