Group works to revitalize Dayton neighborhood

City of Dayton seeking volunteers to help improve North Main Street corridor

The plan details eight main areas of concern including crime, pedestrian safety and economic development. 

“It’s been neglected, a lot of buildings are rundown, houses are vacant,” Lufti Hussein, owner of People’s Market on North Main Street, told News Center 7’s Mike Campbell on Tuesday. 

“The security on North Main street is an issue if they could address that,” Hussein said.

The North Main Street Corridor Plan was initially proposed in January 2017 and was adopted by the City Commission on Dec. 12, 2018. 

The goal of the plan is to turn North Main into a “clean, attractive, stable and safe corridor with a diversity of enriching cultural, educational, social, and economic opportunities and experiences.” 

If you are interested in volunteering for The North Main Street Corridor Plan, contact Rachel Bankowitz at or 937-333-4271; or Chido Baker at or 937-333-3302.
