Community members are invited to attend an Open House for Phoenix Next on January 8th at Fairview PreK-6th School, 2314 Elsmere Ave, Dayton. At the Open House, the public will learn and have the opportunity to comment on recommendations for the 13-acre former Good Samaritan Hospital site and surrounding area.
What to expect at the Open House
There will be a very brief presentation followed by the opportunity to view and comment recommendations on display boards. Participants can write down their thoughts and submit them on comment forms.
Four types of recommendations have been developed:
- On Site – Includes desirable, acceptable and undesirable uses for the 13-acre site and two mixed-use concepts to help to guide potential future development.
- Surrounding Neighborhoods – Focuses on a ½ mile radius around the 13-acre site.
- Beyond the Planning Area – Focuses on a broader area that impacts those who live and work in the surrounding neighborhoods.
- Programs – Presents strategies for coordinating, enhancing or supplementing existing programs and services in the area.
The recommendations support desired outcomes for the work including driving economic vitality, enhancing the image of the area and promoting healthy living. After the Open House, the vision will be refined based on input and the final Re-use and Investment Strategy will be prepared. The recommendations will serve as a guide for future development.
Light refreshments will be served at 5:30 pm and Open House activities will begin at 6 pm. Childcare will be provided. We will see you there!
