DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The group UpDayton has a new mural on the wall of Brim, a hat store in the Oregon district.

The sign says Dayton inspires. They are encouraging people to take pictures with it in the background and post it to social media with the hashtag, #DaytonInspires.

They want the posts to help with their mission to attract and retain young professionals to the Dayton area.

“Now we’re standing to reach a whole new audience of people who maybe just aren’t in our circles on social media,” said Dayton Inspires project leader Olivia Barrow. “Yeah it is starting to reach a lot of people.”

The group hopes other Dayton businesses will see the posts and want a mural of their own.
