The Dayton Community Development Association is pleased to announce that the City Council adopted the final Dayton Forward plan on Dec. 3rd, 2012, following the Dayton Planning Commission’s approval of it on Nov. 8th. Dayton Forward is a collaborative planning effort between the City of Dayton and the Dayton Community Development Association. The planning process for Dayton Forward was facilitated by Ernie Munch, a professional planner and architect with years of experience in community planning. Urban planner/architect Ernie Munch and planning intern Jonathan Mosteiro compiled the Dayton Forward report, based on the meetings and input that you all gave your time and energy to over the last few months. Dayton Forward: A Vision for the Future consists of goals, findings and recommendations, planning guidelines, development scenarios of Dayton over the next 5-25 years, detailed sketches of the opportunity sites, and action items for the city and community.
We want to thank community members for participating in the Dayton Forward planning process. We continue to welcome your participation in the Dayton Community Development Association and/or other committees that will be at work moving Dayton Forward!
