In Memory of Sister Carol Bauer
No words can describe the tireless, advocacy of Sister Carol Bauer. Always passionate, sometimes salty, Sister Carol always let you know where you stood when you worked with her. Sister Carol led the effort to create a community policing program in Northwest Dayton, recognizing that if people don’t feel safe, nothing else matters. She worked side by side with community organizers from CityWide to engage residents in authentic dialogue with Dayton Police Officers. Never one to shy away from conflict or tough conversations, her tenacity led to the creation of a successful partnership between neighbors and police officers that reduced crime, built positive relationships, and won national awards. It was a privilege to know and work alongside someone so highly regarded and respected as a sister, neighbor, mentor, and friend.
Phoenix Partners, Premier Health and the City of Dayton Launch Redevelopment Effort
In December of 2019, following 15 months of community engagement and planning, Premier Health and the City of Dayton released a redevelopment vision for the Phoenix neighborhoods and re-use strategy for the 13-acre former hospital campus.
Leaders in in the communities that make up Northwest Dayton have committed to making the vision a reality. It will require ongoing, bold leadership from our organizations and from the community. The City of Dayton and Premier Health are committed to sustaining a partnership that results in positive redevelopment in Northwest Dayton. Together, Premier Health and the City of Dayton have formally committed $30 million in new resources to this effort over the next 10 years. These resources will be leveraged to attract even greater investment to Northwest Dayton going forward.
As a first step in our continuing partnership, the City and Premier have created a new nonprofit organization to guide the redevelopment effort.Learn More
