Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown get what Dayton, Xenia, Springfield, Troy etc don’t.

Photo of banner on Carnegie Ave. for Cleveland PlusI was driving out of Cleveland yesterday and saw this banner. Apparently Cleveland, Akron, Canton and Youngstown are getting the concept of regionalism better than Dayton, Centerville, Kettering, Huber Heights, Trotwood, Oakwood, Moraine, Beavercreek, Harrison Township, Miamisburg, etc…

Not only is it a brand that registers- it is their version of “Get Midwest”– and it shows what the Dayton Development Coalition should have got from the Turner Effect for their $900,000.

The site is www.clevelandplus.com and their little video will make you forget that they are in the same boat we are.

    Well done! If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the Dayton Region should copy this concept immediately.

    Dayton = THE home of the soapbox derby. Another thing we’ve let die/get ganked away from us. *sigh*

    Wow!!! I am totally stunned. They did an excellent job. We need to get that link passed around so more people can see how much “Get Midwest” missed the mark.

    Mybe Centerville, Kettering, Huber Heights, Trotwood, Oakwood, Moraine, Beavercreek, Harrison Township, Miamisburg, etc… dont want to have anything to do with Dayton. Nearby towns see what going on it Dayton and dont want to be part of it. Look at Miamisburg, the city is almost done revatilizing its downtown, in the process of building a riverfront park and best of all they are going to build lots of new schools they CAN afford (Northmont, Springboro!)
