Landlord program begins in CUF today

An outgrowth of the City of Cincinnati's award-winning Neighborhood Enhancement Program begins today with a ceremony at 10 AM in Clifton Heights.

City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr, members of City Council, community and University of Cincinnati student leaders will help kick off the Landlord Accreditation Program at 2217 Stratford Avenue, the first property to take part in the program.

Designed to help students locate decent and safe housing in the vicinity of campus, the accreditation process requires participating rental properties in the CUF neighborhoods to pass City inspections for crime prevention, fire prevention and building safety.
