Sunday, Sep. 11, 2 p.m.

Come learn about how the Dayton region is turning back to the river, embracing its history and cultural heritage, and looking toward our future as a river city. Communities along the Great Miami River have been activating their downtown riverfronts in a strategic and collaborative. Ohio’s Great Corridor Association was formed as a way to further leverage the river as a tool for economic development, recreational tourism, and quality of life enhancements which attract the talent and creativity of young professionals and businesses. This session will inform and educate participants on some of the more recent successes and ways citizens of all ages can “get their feet wet”.

This program is free and open to the public.
