OnMain Community Workshop Set for June 27

OnMain, the new organization founded by Premier Health and the University of Dayton to develop the former Montgomery County fairgrounds, is hosting a community workshop June 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. Attendees will hear about progress over the last 12 months and can provide their input for the site design and engineering work.

"We're excited to share with the community how the project has been evolving since the onMain vision document was released in October," said Buddy LaChance, CEO of onMain. "We believe this will be a transformational development in the Dayton area and will represent the best of Dayton as a city of innovation, entrepreneurialism, creativity, sustainability and inclusiveness."

Premier Health and the University of Dayton, which purchased the property in 2017 and formed onMain earlier this year to guide its development, have sought and considered public input throughout  the planning process, much of which has helped shape current plans that will be discussed. Similar to two previous interactive workshops, participants at the June 27 session will work together in small groups to generate more specific ideas and discuss opportunities for the character of public spaces and amenities that may be incorporated into the overall site design.

The event is being held in the University of Dayton’s Daniel J. Curran Place in room N1650 at 1700 S. Patterson Blvd. Ample parking is available. Registration is requested but not required. For more information and to register, visit
