Marketing Dayton

Can you make something as simple as stairs seem fun and cool?

Sure, if you stop thinking the same way.

Watch this Volkswagen ad/concept in action.

Open up the zoning and building codes- let people have fun with the spaces downtown. Stop mandating parking requirements- and maybe, you’ll see more people having fun.

c[space wouldn’t get an occupancy permit if it was more than a temporary space. But why? Does a space without heat, sprinklers, emergency egress lighting, exposed wiring, lack of walls- really hurt us more than another closed, empty space?

    BRILLIANT!  We have to pull this off somewhere in Dayton.  I’ll contribute time and some $.  Anyone else what to help make this happen here?

    “Does a space without heat, sprinklers, emergency egress lighting, exposed wiring, lack of walls- really hurt us more than another closed, empty space?” Actually, when human beings are occupying that space, yes. But I agree with you in theory.

    Oh Hooray! So glad to hear you say this. I don’t see any other meaningful way out of the vacancy issues we face.
    I’m not condoning unsafe or illegal behavior, but my site gets hit frequently for the search term “squatter’s rights in Ohio”. And why not? Who’s gonna stop a squatter for squatting in Dayton with 24-33% vacancy (depending on bldg use)?
