Civic organizations played pivotal roles in the development of
the residential community of Hazelwood, founded as a
subdivision of Blue Ash in 1888. The Hazelwood Civic
Association, initially established as the Brothers Civic Society
in 1941, addressed community needs by working for public
improvements and promoting civic relations through social
events and educational programs. Efforts by the HCA led
to the construction of a new civic center and the introduction of the Boy and Girl Scouts and other programs
that were previously unavailable to African-American children
Hazelwood's deterioration and the threat of encroaching
industrial development led to the formation of the Hazelwood
Improvement Corporation in 1968. The HIC, acting as an agent of the city of Blue Ash, helped to upgrade housing, pave roads, build new homes to ensure a residential nature, install water and sewage systems, and erect streetlights. In 1997, the Hazelwood Community Association was organized to assist residents during Hazelwood's transition to a racially integrated community
