Downtown Dayton plan brings more than $1.2 billion in investments
DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – The Greater Downtown Dayton Plan that began in 2010 has reportedly brought in more than $1.2 billion worth of investments.
“So that represents about 600 million of projects are completed,” President of Downtown Dayton Partnership Sandy Gudorf said, “and another 600 million of projects that are in the pipeline. So that’s good news, not only for our downtown, but our community.”
That includes new housing, new businesses and other projects just completed, including the $4 million Riverscape River Run, which will have its opening ceremony May 5.
The plan was originally launched as a partnership to address areas key to urban revitalization for long-term, large-scale economic development. It reportedly represents a new vision for the city that focuses on strengthening connection and creating a downtown that is attractive to investors, businesses, employees, residents, students and visitors.
