Save the evening of October 2nd to join us for the next Community Meeting! After several small group workshops and your input, we have a draft of the Dayton Forward Strategic Plan*! During the presentation there will be opportunity for further comment from community members and we hope you’ll come and participate.
We’ll be meeting on the second floor of the Dayton Community Center at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2nd.
Below, you will find links to a concept map of Dayton’s future and a document containing 13 goals which were generated in three workshops with Dayton residents
It would be helpful if everyone who visits this site picked and offered comments on one or more of the goals they were interested in.
In addition there are three areas/questions which require some thought.
Should the existing recreational vehicle park be designated as future industrial? The advantages to this proposal are: 1) Ready access to the Dundee bypass; 2) Proximity to the sanitary waste disposal site will reduce infrastructure costs; 3) Not within the floodplain; 4) Not within prime farmland; 5) Within the energy district. Giving a ready customer for reclaimed energy and presumably, large roof areas.
What should be the future of the rural residential area northwest of highway 18? No one had any clear alternative vision for this area. Because it is sparsely populated and within the Urban Growth Boundary, it makes it more difficult to justify the expansion of that boundary in an alternative direction.
Should some of the area purchased for ball fields be used for a large, ground mounted solar array to generate power for Dayton?
Please send your comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or better yet come to the meeting at 6:30 PM, on October 2nd at the community center and join in on the conversation.
We look forward to your attendance and thank you very much for the support you’ve given so far!
