About the Plan
The Plan was created from a partnership-driven revitalization effort that brought together Five Rivers MetroParks, Miami Conservancy District, the City of Dayton, Montgomery County, Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, the Downtown Dayton Partnership, and the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA). Additional funding support was provided by The Dayton Foundation and the Montgomery County Land Bank.
