It seems everyone has ideas, but we’re all shooting off on our own little disconnected soapboxes. That’s part of what DaytonOS.com is going to try to achieve- a place for us all to gather our collective ideas.
In the meantime, today I uncovered 2 new blogs- For the love of Dayton, and Daytonology. I’m sorry if I’m a little slow at this, I didn’t really apply for the job.
So- interestingly enough, there is a “plan” to demolish a whole “blighted” part of our neighborhood- and turn it into an “Urban park” – go take a look:
Daytonology: Cyburn Manor to Urban Park
A not-so-modest proposal to improve South Parks boundaries, remove public housing, clear out blight, and provide a big urban landscape park.
Note- releasing ideas like this- before you acquire all the property is partly why the Kroger deal is a disaster.
And, there are some parts of that “blighted” area- that are far from blighted.
