The City of Dayton is spearheading a project aimed at extending Patterson Boulevard Canal Parkway. The Dayton Daily News reports that the city will be using a $2.2 million dollar grant in to expand the Parkway the length of four blocks.
The State of Ohio awarded the grant to the City in 2008 to begin construction on a cultural project. Original plans were to fund a mixed-use project in the RiverScape area. Those plans fell through.
The City was allowed to use that money for the Canal project.
A report focusing on single-family home and condo sales indicates Dayton Home prices grew rapidly in the last four months. According to Clear Capital’s quarterly Home Data Index, local home prices rose by 6.3 percent. Only Phoenix Arizona saw a higher climb in home prices.
