Nice write-up in the Dayton Daily News

Patterson Canal Boulevard received a nice write-up in the Dayton Daily News this morning, including some nice quotes from the Mayor and other important people in the City.

“Patterson Boulevard was part of our future plans, so we were able to put the money toward that,” said Steve Finke, assistant director of Public Works. The city is covering the engineering and planning costs.
The city commission approved use of the money for the project on Wednesday.
The project includes widening sidewalks, planting trees, flowers and shrubbery, adding a bike lane and installing 12-foot-high pylons with decorative lighting along the four-lane boulevard.
“It will be a history walk with 10 pylon markers that show the history of the canal and the city,” said Finke.
“It ties Riverscape to Fifth Third to Cooper Park to the Oregon District,” Finke said. “It provides a better experience to draw people from the ballpark to the Oregon District.”

We at MorrisTerra are quite excited that this is proceeding and would like to congratulate the City for its vision of walkability!
