Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Phoenix Next?

The City of Dayton, Premier Health and CityWide Development are continuing their partnership work in the neighborhoods surrounding the Good Samaritan Hospital site in Northwest Dayton. The work, which has been underway for 15 years, has been known as the Phoenix Project, and a special initiative named Phoenix Next was launched in early 2018. The purpose of Phoenix Next is to create a re-use strategy for the 13-acre site and a strategic investment plan for the Phoenix Area neighborhoods.

2. What should I expect at the August 21st Options Workshop?

You will see what progress has been made in planning for the future of the site and Phoenix Area neighborhoods. You will also have the chance to comment and provide additional input.

3. What has happened since the last public meeting?

A Community Forum was held in March 2018. Since then, additional public input has been gathered through an online survey and targeted outreach. Existing conditions, trends and opportunities have been analyzed and preliminary concepts for re-use of the site and investment in the Phoenix Area neighborhoods have been developed.

4. How long will the planning process take and what will be produced?

The process was initiated in February 2018 and is anticipated to be completed by the end of the year.

5. What if I can’t attend the workshop?

Everyone who cares about the future of the site and neighborhoods is welcome to provide additional feedback. The workshop will provide a special opportunity to learn about the project first hand from the planning team and to interact with others. For those who can’t attend, a second online survey will be conducted through which you can share your thoughts. An Open House will take place in fall 2018 to provide another opportunity for face-to-face interaction.
