South Cumminsville Action Team

The South Cumminsville Action Team is a group of concerned residents and their partners working together to make South Cumminsville stronger, safer, healthier, and more economically and environmentally sustainable. The Action Team was formed out of the June 2013 Walkability Workshop as a way to follow through on recommendations to make the community more walkable and accessible to all users, including cyclists and pedestrians–especially children, the elderly, and disabled residents. 

Two early priorities of the Team’s work include:

  • Ensure safety of children walking and biking to/from Wayne Playfield by slowing down traffic on Beekman between Elmore and Dreman.
  • Provide safe crossings for children, seniors and people with disabilities to cross at main intersections and destinations.

In addition, the Action Team is developing strategies to promote economic development, access to fresh food and healthy lifestyles, and public safety. Community leaders and partners are developing solutions and taking action. So far, the Action Team has accomplished a lot.

The South Cumminsville Action Team meets every fourth Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm.  Meetings are held in WIN’s Community Room at 1814 Dreman Avenue in South Cumminsville. For more information or to learn how you can get involved, contact Rigel Behrens at or call (513) 541-4109 x.103
