Review the draft Montgomery Road Plan

Norwood residents helped “relaunch the Pike” when they attended a November 19 open house to review the first draft of a new vision for Montgomery Road.

Because of covid restrictions, Norwood Together and the City of Norwood had to limit the number of people at the open house. But residents still have time to review the draft plan and share their ideas for the Pike.

See the plan highlights here, and the open house presentation here.

Then email your feedback and questions to Norwood Together:

The Montgomery Road Plan is the result of a $30,000 planning grant secured earlier this year by Norwood Together and the City of Norwood. A steering committee of residents, city officials, and business leaders have been helping Hamilton County planners create a vision for Montgomery Road, a blueprint to “relaunch the Pike,” as Mayor Schneider says. The plan is for Montgomery Road from Dana Avenue to the Norwood Lateral.

What planners will share at the open house is just the first draft. Hamilton County planners will incorporate residents’ ideas into the plan before submitting it to city officials for adoption.

Help create a Floral-Hudson Pocket Park

You can donate to help create a new resident-designed, funded and created pocket park at the corner of Floral and Hudson avenues.

Jon Moore is spearheading this neighborhood plan, which has city approval. Already, residents have pledged $1,300, but another $1,300 is needed for pavers, dirt, a trash can and a bench. You can donate through Norwood Together — just follow that link and be sure to make a note that your donation is for the Floral-Hudson Pocket Park.
