DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley has set out on the first of 14 neighborhood meetings across the city this summer.

Whaley is meeting with residents to talk about how to make each neighborhood successful and get input on what they want from the government.

“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.”

Thursday night she was in the Roosevelt neighborhood on West Fifth Street.

On July 17 she will be at the Haines Children’s Center at 3304 N. Main St. in the Hillview/Hillcrest neighborhood.

July 22 she will be in the Huffman neighborhood at Huffman Place, 100 Huffman Ave.

The Mayor’s office is currently working with neighborhoods to confirm other community locations.

Additional neighborhoods will be added to the city’s website, daytonohio.gov, as they are finalized.
