I want to welcome you if this is your first introduction to the Village of Golf Manor and welcome you back if you’re a current resident or business owner. I believe you will find Golf Manor to be a unique community that offers many diverse opportunities for residents, business owners, and visitors.
This website has been designed as a resource and informational tool for you, the resident, business owner, visitor and prospective resident, to learn more about our Village, one of Greater Cincinnati’s first suburbs. Golf Manor was initially a part of Columbia Township and incorporated as a village in 1947 by residents with a common goal of sharing community and providing services in a residential area with excellent services. We enjoy our own police protection, road and administrative services, the best in the County. We recently merged our highly rated fire department with the Little Miami Fire and Rescue District (LMFR), with the Golf Manor Chief leading the new district. Our fire and emergency medical services are now provided by LMFR, again the best in the County. We continually look to share services with other communities to keep tax dollar value high and expenses low.
Our sense of independence does not negate the fact that we are a part of a larger region that incorporates the best offerings in service and entertainment, all close to our Village by virtue of our central location and easy access to public transportation and highways.
Our housing stock is some of the best available in Hamilton County at a much lower cost than some of our neighboring communities providing the opportunity for new families to own more home for the dollar and enjoy recreational opportunities that are available throughout the area. As a part of the Cincinnati Public Schools, and other educational institutions in our region, the opportunity for a diverse education for our children is unmeasurable.
The goal of leadership here in the Village is to make this a very livable, friendly and safe community. The elected officials are all your neighbors with a vested interest in seeing this community thrive. We’re all committed to serving our residents and encourage you to become involved with your local government, particularly at Council meetings the second and fourth Monday evenings of every month.
We are in the midst of a number of programs emphasizing the basics of Village management that will strengthen the finances, infrastructure, and safety of the Village. Our main roadway, Losantiville Avenue, was completed in the Fall of 2017, an example of smart planning, working with the County and State, and getting the best bang for tax dollar. In 2018 we rolled out a 5 – 10 year road rehabilitation plan which will guide us in ensuring safe, drivable streets for our future. Two major street projects will take place over the next two years including a complete rehabilitation of Stover Avenue as well as Vera, northern Elbrook and the western service drive.
The secret sauce of the quality of life in our Village is the people – the individuals, families and unique business owners who have chosen to call Golf Manor home. Our momentum continues as we move the Village forward and we look forward to hearing from you about how we can better be of service to the residents.
My family and I are proud to call Golf Manor home. I believe in this community and our ability to work together to make Golf Manor the “Great Village” it’s meant to be!
