Thousands of Daytonians have contributed ideas to the Greater Downtown Dayton Plan, a strategic blueprint for creating a vibrant, thriving downtown. When the process to develop this plan was launched in January, the community was promised they’d have multiple opportunities to give their input ― and another of those opportunities will take place in early October.More than 200 volunteers have been researching and developing preliminary recommendations for everything from creating a pedestrian-friendly downtown to expanding housing. Now, they’re seeking public input to help finalize these recommendations.
The public is invited to attend an open studio to give their input on the work done so far. All open studios will be held at 8 N. Main St., next to the National City Building near the corner of Third and Main streets. The times and dates are:
• 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3
• 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5
• 5 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5
• 7:30 to 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6
All open studios will begin with approximately an hour of presentations and discussion, followed by an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the preliminary recommendations, view maps and renderings, give their ideas, and more at their own pace. Attendees may stop in at any time during the open studios and stay as long as they like.
