Apparently many local private donors are enthusiastic that a new style of curriculum called "flipping" will help broaden their pools of prospective job candidates that they have contributed a bunch of money to Wright State to build a new building composed of classrooms that are more condusive to this curriculum.

Airbus plans big investment in Ohio supply chain
Quote:
An Airbus spokesperson confirmed there will be an announcement at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, but said the company does not have any comment at this time. The announcement, which reportedly centers on consolidating more of Airbus’ suppliers in the state and in Dayton, would provide even more fuel to the local manufacturing resurgence.

A Brookings Institution report in the spring said the 4.5 percent growth of manufacturing jobs in Dayton was more than double the national average during the past year. The Dayton area ranked 33rd in the country for job growth during a two-year period.




Local Jobless Rates Fall
Quote:
The September rate for Dayton fell to 8.3 percent from 8.9 percent in August and was down from 10.8 percent a year ago.

In Montgomery County, the rate dropped to 7.3 percent from 7.6 percent in the previous month and 9.2 percent a year ago.

Davidson would not give precise revenue figures, but he said West Troy’s sales grew 15 percent in 2011 over 2010, and he expects sales to grow 30 percent this year.




Development for Warren Street in Dayton
Quote:
Construction started Monday on a new project in a Dayton neighborhood that some say is poised for development.

Goodwill will build on a seven acre property that once housed Benham's Catering for more than 70 years. The old Benham's building demolition is the first part of the project. The new building will house additional administration offices and program service space. 125 Goodwill employees from the Kuntz Road location will move to the new one when its complete in 2014. Officials said the extra space should allow them to add at least 50 new jobs.

This may not exactly be development, but while driving along the new routing of 444, it looks like a bunch of vacant buildings are being reused, i.e. the former Burger King being converted into a diner and some box stores being split into smaller independent stores.

Hi dxdtdemon--

I'm not too familiar with Fairborn but doesn't the rerouting of 444 divert traffic away from the Main St./center of town area?

Tech Town is a bad joke started by Congressman Mike Turner, who was then Dayton's mayor. Rhine McLin beat the Tech Town drum half to death anytime she needed something to point out Dayton's progress.

That's not the part of 444 that's being rerouted. Basically, the base wanted to have to guard fewer gates and so they are in the process of building fences across the old 444 and probably have gates there instead of the few there were on each side of it. Basically, if you were coming from Dayton, 444 turns right on Dayton-Yellow Springs Rd., then immediately left on Kaufman just past the railroad track, and eventually connecting back to where it used to go just east of the base by a street whose name I don't remember. The Burger King (along with one or two others that used to be chain restaurants that were vacant but are being converted into independent restaurants) and the vacant strip malls that now have a bunch of signs of businesses about to have grand openings are along Kaufman. I also noticed that many of the current vacancies along the part of Broad St. that is still 444 also have signs that businesses will be opening there in the next month or two.

Tech Town was originally supposed to be Tool Town, a sort of industrial campus/incubator/research center for the local machine tool/tool & die industry. This was part of a bigger plan to keep this local manufacturing speciality competetive in the global market.

Somewhere down the pike "they" figured that this metalworking sector was slowly shrinking rather than growing, so re-poistioned the concept from Tool-Town to Tech-Town, to do soemthng more hi-tech, maybe involved with spin-off technology from Wright-Patterson AFB.

Also down the pike the proposed adaptive re-use of the old Frigidaire loft factory on the site was nixed and they tore that down.

So now they have this nicely landscaped site with two new buildings up. Not sure whats actually in those buildings (if anything) since I stopped keeping up with the plan after the demolition of the old loft factory.
