This is a historic document from the Village of Woodlawn 2003

Woodlawn is not only an exceptional place for doing business, it’s also a great place to call home. Woodlawn’s people reflect a diversity of preferences and backgrounds, and for every individual preference or background there is a comfortable, affordable place to live. The town’s quiet residential district is reached by tree-lined streets winding up gentle hills revealing delightful charms.

Woodlawn residents have the reassurance of living in a town where public services are superior and reliable. The Village staffs a full time 14 member police department and the fire department has an exceptional fleet of fire prevention and EMS equipment. The town boasts an unusually low crime rate and its Class V fire insurance rating guarantees homeowners and businesses both safety and cost savings. The Village also staffs full time Public Service and Recreation Departments. There is a medical office complex and an outpatient care facility located in Woodlawn, and Greater Cincinnati’s hospital community includes over 9,100 beds in more than 30 hospitals, two of which are located within fifteen minutes of Woodlawn.

Woodlawn’s development has been deliberate and planned by a well-managed government and a network of dedicated resident and business volunteers. Under a statutory form of government, an elected mayor and six member Council work in conjunction with a professional Municipal Staff, Planning Commission and Economic Development Committee to maintain a high level of public services and to guide future growth. Woodlawn combines cosmopolitan amenities afforded by its closeness to Cincinnati with small town ambience. Many residents and businesses have already discovered this well kept secret by making Woodlawn their home.
