Fairgrounds to Future kicked off this November at a workshop that attracted over 200 participants. This project aims to create a community-minded vision for the former home of the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Dayton, OH. This 38-acre site sits between two of the city's leading institutions - Premier Health and the University of Dayton. The two partners own the site and are committed to a plan that builds on their own institutional missions and values, promotes economic development, and fosters a unique sense of place that serves broader community interests.
As part of the planning NEXT lead team, NP is providing strategic real estate, economic development and feasibility analysis.
Since the start of the Fairgrounds to Future process this fall, nearly 500 people have shared their ideas at a workshop or online. In addition, 30 stakeholder groups have been interviewed and more than 1,000 thoughts about the future of the fairgrounds have been collected.
