The City Commission has approved contracts valued at $3.3 million for resurfacing neighborhood streets in 2017. Dayton will resurface approximately 75 lane miles this year, more than tripling the lane miles paved in recent years. Expansion of the residential street resurfacing program is made possible by voter approval of Issue 9 in November of 2016. For a list of streets to be resurfaced, visit daytonohio.gov.
Throughout May, the City of Dayton is mailing copies of the Dayton Survey to thousands of Dayton homes. Responses will help inform future City budgets, policies and priorities. Participation is anonymous, and postage-paid envelopes are included for returning completed surveys. If you are a Dayton resident and don't receive a mailed survey, you may complete the survey online starting June 16 at daytonsurvey.org.
Cherry blossom trail grows in Dayton
Former Governor Bob Taft, Mayor Nan Whaley, DP&L President/CEO Tom Raga and Mr. Alex Hara joined community members on May 1 to plant trees along Dayton's cherry blossom trail. The trail of trees along the western shore of the Great Miami River near downtown Dayton will connect two landmarks, the Dayton Art Institute and Carillon Historical Park, with dozens of cherry trees. The trees were donated by DP&L and Operation 1000 Cherry Tree Project, a non-profit initiative that has coordinated planting cherry trees in the Dayton area for several years. See a video of the event here.
