DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley is planning a series of neighborhood meetings.

She will discuss the unique future opportunities of each neighborhood with their residents.

“Our citizens are our most precious resource” said Mayor Whaley. “My goal is to have a candid discussion with each neighborhood so that we can craft a strategy that supports their vision for the future. I want to provide the opportunity for partnership with the city and promote active community engagement.”
