Dayton Receives CDBG Planning Grant

The Town of Dayton received a Community Development Block Grant from the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development to develop a downtown revitalization plan that will guide the Town’s efforts to reenergize Downtown Dayton. Through this process, the Town hopes to create a collaborative vision for transforming Downtown Dayton into a year-round destination through streetscaping, local business, and pedestrian-oriented development.

To kick off the planning process, the Town will hold a public meeting later this Summer that will introduce the project and gather community input to guide the vision for the Downtown. Throughout the Summer, a Project Management Team will be formed and a physical inventory of buildings and open spaces in Downtown Dayton will be completed to establish a foundation for the full planning process that will be started in the Fall. The CSPDC is providing grant writing services and grant administration support.
