The workshop will give residents a chance to learn about progress over the last year and provide insight into the design and engineering work. Participants will work in small groups to generate specific ideas and discuss amenities and public spaces that could be incorporated in the overall design.

“We’re excited to share with the community how the project has been evolving since the onMain vision document was released in October,” said Buddy LaChance, CEO of onMain. “We believe this will be a transformational development in the Dayton area and will represent the best of Dayton as a city of innovation, entrepreneurialism, creativity, sustainability and inclusiveness.”
