    Just spent around 24 hours in Dayton Friday to Saturday. We haven’t been there in around 8 years, and never really spent any real time in the city. Still working on collecting my thoughts and formatting some photos to share… wondered what any CU’ers thought of Dayton if they’ve been there, or maybe originally from that area? How has it changed in the past decade or so?

But the Gem City started falling on hard economic times in the 1980s. In this hour, we’ll talk to Dayton residents who have documented the city’s struggle in a very creative way, and participated in its remarkable resurgence.

    Staff Reporter – Dayton Business Journal

    A new $36 million project is in the works for downtown Dayton in the area that had been planned for Ballpark Village. Dayton city officials say the development, being called Water Street Redevelopment, could revitalize a long-vacant space. The first phase of the proposed mixed-use development between Patterson and Webster streets, to the north of Fifth Third Field Downtown, will have 161 luxury residential apartments, 50,000 square feet of office and retail space and about 430 parking spaces.

    The Dayton City Commission voted to make the city “immigrant friendly,” with programs to attract newcomers and encourage those already here, as a way to help stem job losses and a drop in population.
