Public Invited to Open House

By December 13, 2018 News

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!

  • why not keep the E.R. as free standing urgent care and the old Café a day care center?

    I live at 804 Sunnyview and am very interested in plans for the Good Samaritan Hospital site.

  • Most of the homes in the santa clara and five oaks area either need to be torn down or pay some of the home owners out of the homes that want to sell and cannot sell their homes due too much up keep. The homes that are in good standing conditions can be restored sold to low income families or rent out to college kids that have no income or homeless and ran by the government. These are some ideas to keep the santa clara and five oaks area alive. I grew up in this area and moved back in 1999 and purchased a home in the area. I have never seen this area go down like this since park side and low income housing area citizens were relocated, due to tear down and revamp. I hope that anything the investments group can do is to revitalize the area like the UD area downtown hopefully it will help the community.
