On Thursday, March 16th, 2017 GDUCI held a meeting with community members about the Gem City Market at the Northwest Recreation Center. The meeting included updates from steering committee meetings on various parts of the plan to make the Gem City Market a realty. It was also stressed at the meeting that the effort to make the market happen will require engagement from the community – something that was clearly on display at the meeting.
We want to thank all who attended last Thursday’s Gem City Market Community Meeting! We had a capacity turnout in a room full of excitement, positive energy, and resolve. We owe a special thanks to Pizza Factory, Dayton’s Original for providing dinner for the evening, the Montgomery County (Ohio) Young Democrats for donating water and supplies for the meeting, and the Northwest Recreation Center for graciously hosting our meeting.
The Gem City Market will be a full-service grocery store and deli located in the Salem Avenue corridor, just across the bridge from downtown Dayton.
