Ice Cream Social, Amberley Village!

Bringing Neighbors

Together Through Ice Cream

This past Sunday marked the 26th Anniversary of what started out as a Public Safety Fair. Amberley Village Police-Fire Department sought a way to bring the community together. Thanks to all who sponsored, volunteered, attended or otherwise helped make the event a success! This year marked the return of our in-person events, and showed record numbers for ice cream consumption, trolley rides and hot dog handouts. All of us at Amberley Village truly appreciate what a special community of residents, friends and supporters we enjoy - and we hope you enjoyed the event, too!

Making Trees a Priority in the Village

Amberley Village has been recognized as a Tree City USA for nearly two decades now. Recent efforts to promote the Village Tree + Bench Donation program have resulted in an increase in tree plantings, which not only enhance the Village landscape but also offer a beautiful way to honor a loved one. Two examples shown above are the Whitaker Tree (left) and the Hattenbach Memorial (right), both installed within the past two years. Residents interested in taking advantage of the opportunity to honor a loved one or commemorate a special event are invited to check out the Tree + Bench donation program. It’s a great way to contribute to the community’s natural beauty at the same time!

Amberley Welcomes You Sign Campaign

Amberley Village Human Rights Commission (HRC) last year developed a campaign showcasing the Village as a community welcoming to all. These efforts were expanded at the recent Ice Cream Social, where yard signs were made available to residents wishing to join in the positive messaging to all who drive through our neighborhood. The hillside banner at the Municipal Building replicates the tone and image of the yard signs, which are now available for pickup at the Administration window at the 7149 Ridge Road building. The signs are free of charge, and come in two sizes to meet the tastes and display preferences of our residents. The Human Rights Commission meets one Wednesday of every month in the Community Room at the Municipal Building. Check out the Village website HRC page (see article below) and the calendar for more information.

OKI Drone Training at Amberley Green

Amberley Village was recently approached by staff at the Regional Council of Governments for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana (OKI) regarding the use of Amberley Green for drone training. And while drones are not permitted to be flown in the Village without prior authorization, Village leadership agreed to allow OKI to train there for the collective benefit of local governments, business organizations and community groups served by the organization. OKI in return agreed to provide drone footage of their training sessions, which is featured via the Gallery link below. The images and video will be used by the Village for promotional purposes and in upcoming publications, saving taxpayer dollars as well as staff time and resources. 

Above: The Village Community Garden as seen from the OKI drone.

Formed in 1964, OKI has spent 50 years cultivating partnerships and alliances that range from the federal government to local councils. Its 118 members represent governmental, social and civic groups from nearly 200 communities in the eight-county, three-state region.

OKI works collaboratively with stakeholders to solve interstate dilemmas, create far-reaching development plans, break through political bureaucracy, provide services to the public and advocate for federal funding.

OKI has final authority over all federal dollars spent on surface transportation in the region. Each year, OKI approves roughly $40 million in funding for projects in the region.
