Organizers are hoping a development summit in Dayton can attract and retain more young professionals.
The Dayton Daily News reports the community was invited to submit project proposals earlier this month to be reviewed and voted on at the event.
Three projects will be approved by summit participants and completed within the next year by volunteers and community partners.
Last year's summit brought the creation of the Dayton Food Finder, which maps places to find various groceries within the downtown core. UpDayton chairwoman Val Hunt BeerBower said it keeps money in the local economy and identifies healthy eating options.
