Dayton City Commissioners unanimously approved the zoning change for the former Montgomery County fairgrounds from Park/Open Space (OS) to Urban Business District (UBD). Dr. Eric Spina, president of the University of Dayton, Mary Boosalis, president and CEO of Premier Health, and Rick Omlor, chairman of the onMain board of directors spoke on behalf of onMain, emphasizing the uniqueness of this opportunity and development’s importance to the Dayton community.
onMain’s application for this zoning change is the culmination two years of planning by the University of Dayton and Premier Health to develop a long-term vision and master plan for the property that reflects the mission and values of the two institutions, while at the same time striving to create an authentic sense of place.
During the two-year planning process, four community meetings have been held and over 1,000 people have had the opportunity to shape the aspirations for reimagining the property and provide input to the design.
The Planned Development design standards will help translate the long-term aspirational vision into reality. These standards incorporate a variety of planning principles including; land use and urban design principles, a pedestrian and transit friendly internal street network and the integration of a diverse set of open/recreational spaces.
