Naah - I don't think one thing has anything to do with the other. Dayton has always had a reasonable amount of tech by virtue of the Air Force base and its ties to aviation. And then there's Lexis-Nexis. I think that is a bigger driver than anything else.

I don't think people looking at where to expand are saying, "Yeah, that Dayton is a really hot town now that it's part of a CMSA! We have to jump in on it!" If that were the case, Cleveland would still be the Number 12 DMA.
I do agree that whether or not Dayton is part of a CSMA is not likely to impact the decision a business potentially considering Dayton for relocation or start up purposes. At least in most cases. It is just a designation used by the Census when two metro areas in close proximity to one another become tied due to the commuting patterns of working people and I think to some degree economic ties.

In the 90's and 00's, when Akron had a CMSA with Cleveland, while Cleveland's businesses were failing, Cleveland decided to steal a whole bunch of Akron's businesses under the guise of "keeping it in the area", and basically just kept stealing Akron's success in an attempt to stop failing. Dayton should be really wary of being in a CMSA with Cincinnati.

Although the impending merger of Cincinnati with Dayton ("CIN-DAY") is important, this thread centers on construction projects, primarily in Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus. The Site Selection magazine articles from the last two years (linked in Post #1 and #5) are the focus of discussion here. However, there is another thread,"Cincinnati MSA grows," where CMSA's are legitimate points for discussion.
