The Occupy Dayton movement has agreed to temporarily relocate to Dave Hall Plaza on Main Street. The agreement was reached to allow for the set up of the annual Grande Illumination light display. The group was somewhat divided after Sandy Gudorf, the president of the Downtown Dayton Partnership, approached the occupiers with the proposal for temporary relocation.
However, at a general assembly meeting, a majority of the occupiers voted in favor of the relocation for the ceremony. Occupier Dana Fleetham says there was disagreement leading up to the decision to move.
