DRC Proposes Constitution Changes

The DRC Board of Trustees is recommending amending the the DRC Constitution in order to reflect the organization's current practices. Primary changes are to provide for monthly member meetings, to establish April as the annual meeting, and to allow voting for Trustees by a show of hands if the number of candidates is the same or fewer than positions open. Other changes are technical.

All of the proposed changes are in the attached document. This will serve as notice that the proposed amendments will be voted on at the DRC September Members Meeting. These amendments also be proposed and discussed at the August Members Meeting.

Please review these changes and feel free to contact Gary Bryson or any board member if you have any questions. In order to amend the Constitution two thirds of members present at the meeting must vote in favor.

Our Downtown on the Move

Downtown Cincinnati is now home to over 6,000 residents, with more arriving every month as new condos and apartment homes are completed. The Downtown Residents Council works to develop a community atmosphere, conducts projects to improve the quality of life, and voices concerns of residents at City Hall.

We work closely with the Police Department on safety issues and Downtown Cincinnati Inc. and 3CDC on development and promotion efforts.
