Strong partnerships that share common goals and objectives.
City of Dayton
To date, the City of Dayton has committed $5.6 million, the State of Ohio has committed $13.9 million and the federal government has committed $5.8 million to transform an old General Motors brownfield site into a high technology park called Dayton Tech Town that is the home of the Dayton RCC.
CityWide Development Corporation
For 34 years, CityWide Development Corporation has played a part in transforming possibilities into reality for Dayton business owners and homeowners. Whether it’s a new or expanded business, a revitalized neighborhood or a re-energized downtown Dayton, CityWide was probably involved.
CityWide’s origins date back to 1972, when a major manufacturing decline was occurring. CityWide was created jointly by the city government, local business leaders and neighborhood representatives. The organization was charged with helping businesses create jobs and helping to strengthen the city’s neighborhoods.
Today, CityWide’s mission remains unchanged. With a variety of financial, consultative and educational services, the nonprofit agency provides assistance in several areas of investment including business, neighborhoods, entertainment and downtown housing, among others.
Over the past three decades, CityWide has helped hundreds of businesses expand, renovate or open in Dayton. In the process, thousands of jobs have been retained or created.
