Last Wednesday night at Brixx, the four 2012 Summit Projects came together to update one another on the challenges they’ve faced and the progress they’ve made on making change in Dayton. Get updated here on the teams’ progress.
The team has identified a vacant lot by Ruskin PreK-8 School to create a pocket park for local children. The team is working on design ideas with the Twin Towers neighborhood to create an outdoor reading room and interactive chalk mural.
The team is working with the Dayton Metro Library to expand the Library’s Take it and Read program to immigrant communities in the Dayton area. They will be hosting a book drive to fill several locations with bi-lingual reading materials in immigrant neighborhoods and cultural centers.
The bike route has been identified and the “Wagglers” are hard at work developing ways to promote downtown attractions and points of interest along the way using signage, a website, and other marketing materials. In addition, the team is working on partnerships with alternative transportation clubs and associations throughout the region in an effort to turn the project into a long-term advocacy effort.
I Did Dayton
With a list of must-see places and attractions in Dayton, this team is ready to create a map and market their “bucket list” to the mass populous. The team’s next meeting will be at Urban Nights to “live the list.” Stay tuned for time and location to join in the fun.
