2020 Community Garden Applications Now Being Accepted!

Amberley Village is now accepting applications for the 2020 gardening season!  Amberley Green hosts 40 garden plots for the April – November growing season, complete with deer fencing, access to a garden cart and water, and friendly gardeners to share in the experience.  Plot size is 9 x 15, and rental cost for the season is just $50.  Organic practices are utilized, so no pesticides or other chemicals are permitted.  As a hub garden of the Civic Garden Center, monthly demonstrations of garden techniques and cooking ideas for produce are planned.

Interested?  Fill out the application form below and email to with the subject header “Garden,” or simply drop off at the Administration window in the Municipal Building.  Hard copies are also available at the Administration offices.

Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, with preference given to returning gardeners through year’s end.  Applications must include payment to be considered complete.  Thirty-six plots are available, and applications are accepted until all plots are filled.  We look forward to seeing you in the garden!

GCWW Water Main Replacement Update

In Spring of 2018, Amberley Village announced Greater Cincinnati Water Works’ (GCWW) intention to replace the water main on Arborcrest Drive, Arborcrest Court, Longmeadow Lane, North and South Whitetree Circle and Lamarque Drive from Longmeadow to Whitetree. GCWW stated the diameter of the water main will be increased from 6 inches to 12 inches.

GCWW is replacing the older cast iron water main with a new ductile iron pipe which is a more durable material and is longer lasting. The project will result in better water flow to fire hydrants and better water flow to residential users. The Village has purchased 32 new fire hydrants to be installed by Cincinnati Water Works as a part of the project, which saves the Village the cost of installation.

The Arborcrest Drive and Arborcrest Court mains have been installed and tested. Once GCWW has finished installing the mains on North and South Whitetree and Longmeadow Lane, they will go back to Arborcrest to start residential service connections.

The Village anticipates, in a joint project with GCWW, resurfacing the affected roads to complete the project.
