Who is Oakley Community Council?

The Oakley Community Council is a non-profit entity for the purpose of preserving and improving the neighborhood of Oakley for its residents, businesses, institutions, and other community organizations.

Eastern Gateway Construction Schedule

The construction work on the Eastern Gateway project will be starting in March 2020, and because this project involves complete replacement on the eastern pedestrian bridge across Madison Road, there will be lane and street closures, and detours at times. The work is expected to take 4-5 months to complete.

City Department of Transportation and Engineering (DOTE) will post updates on their twitter account (@RoadmapCincy)  and we will post the latest schedule updates here, so check back frequently for the latest information.

Lane/Street Closures and Detours


Cincinnati Metro routes (11, 12x, 41, some school routes) will be impacted by these closures/detours, you can see all the Metro detours on their blog

Detailed information about the project design can be found here.

2020 United States Census

The 2020 United States Census kicks off in March 2020, and the Oakley Community Council is committed to promoting full participation and assisting those who may not have online access or other issues that might make it difficult to complete the census.  We will be sharing local resources and Oakley related information here, so check back regularly for updates.


  • March 12 - 20: Households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census online, by phone, or by mail.  
  • March 30 - April 1: The Census Bureau will count people who are experiencing homelessness over these three days. As part of this process, the Census Bureau counts people in shelters, at soup kitchens and mobile food vans, on the streets, and at non-sheltered, outdoor locations such as tent encampments.
  • April 1: Census Day is observed nationwide. By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. When you respond to the census, you'll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020.
  • April: Census takers will begin visiting college students who live on campus, people living in senior centers, and others who live among large groups of people. Census takers also begin conducting quality check interviews to help ensure an accurate count.
  • May - July: Census takers will begin visiting homes that haven't responded to the 2020 Census to help make sure everyone is counted.
