The city of Dayton is seeking volunteers for a plan that will help improve conditions on the 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.”
