Urban Tree Commission began as a group of citizens who wanted to see more trees planted in this community. In 2011, the Mt. Healthy City Council passed an ordinance officially establishing the Commission for the purpose of making recommendations and disseminating information on the planting and care of trees in the city.  The Commission offers assistance with tree selection and care, as well as advice on what to do about tree problems. The goal is to aid both the city and private homeowners in putting more trees into our landscape.  Meetings are the second Monday of each month from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM. The location varies. For those interested in attending, please call 377-1976 or email for the most current information.

Mt. Healthy/Springfield Township Joint Economic Development Zone 1 (JEDZ1) Board  Residents of Springfield Township voted and passed an issue on the May 6, 2014 ballot to partner with the City of Mt. Healthy and create a joint economic development zone (JEDZ). The designated zone includes properties in Springfield Township where businesses are located and/or individuals work, excluding home-based businesses.  The JEDZ enabled the collection of a 1.5% payroll/earnings tax on businesses and individuals who work in the zone.  The City of Mt. Healthy collects the tax and allocates the revenue between the Township and the City based on the percentage outlined in the agreement.
