Dayton's renaissance, if it ever truly sees one, will come from individual citizens like the Cocos and not from its sorry excuse for a local/regional government.

While I do think Dayton's governance has plenty of room for improvement, I'm still always shocked at how much more functional it is than Cleveland's city government, and in a lot of ways Dayton gets more things done than Cincinnati, believe it or not. Most of the roads are in decent-enough to good shape, and when roads do get rebuilt they usually do a good job with making them look nice and adding bike lanes and bumpouts and the like. And the city is surprisingly responsive to complaints filed through the iPhone app. Good luck even having an app in Flint.

That said, it really does take the grassroots work to make the difference. No matter how many "big ideas" or "master plans" a city puts out, it takes concerned citizens who are active in improving their neighborhoods to make the difference. Get enough individuals to demonstrate community pride, and you'll create a snowball effect.

JUST IN: Downtown Dayton developer lands state funds for $18M project in Webster Station


Finally, more offices. All of the new housing is nice, but downtown needs more jobs for anything to work/last.
