    Great idea involving the community! We missed hearing about the previous meetings, glad we saw the article in the University of Dayton magazine. Our ideas center around developing the site similar to small European towns. The retail shops & restaraunts are small & inviting. While offering residents a unique privacy if they choose to live there. No massive parking lots, perimeter parking along the outside of the development. All local entrepreneurs, please no chain stores! Street scrapping with environmental friendly structures.

    After attending the first workshop, I am so excited about the possibilities shared. I have always wanted to experience a pocket-style neighborhood with a “town” center and safe walking/biking paths. There were so many wonderful ideas submitted by the participants and I was particularly pleased that UD and Premier are committed to involving the community outside the Fairgrounds itself. This development with be a great stimulus for the area west and east of the river, as well as the Main Street corridor.

    Would like a 22,000 square ft wood dance floor for various occassions. Weddings, square dances, family reunion, ballroom dances, corporate meeting, Christmas and other holiday parties.

  • Mindy Nemon says:

    Perhaps MVH should consolidate services from other facilities and build, for instance, an imaging facility on the fairgrounds. This could be made more convenient parking for mammos, walk in xrays. Also, could have a drive through MVH pharmacy.

    I was not able to attend the previous planning meetings but have read every idea in the database and viewed the Top Theme statistics. Awesome! Fantastic! I am a Premier Health employee, a big fan of the University of Dayton, a lifelong Dayton resident, former city employee, military veteran, and Homeowner (50 years, same house). I Love Dayton.
    What a Gigantic opportunity this development could be not only for the hospital and university, but for the City of Dayton and Montgomery County. I was pleased to read that 42 community groups and other developers are involved but I’m afraid my idea is rather grandiose and would require the assistance of all levels of goverment; city, county, state, and federal.
    Understanding that the university and hospital are the owners of this property and are in no way obligated to develop anything more than what which would benefit these two entities, it is refreshing to know that they are concerned for the neighborhoods and people in this entire area. May God’s influence, and continued blessings, be in this project.
