Kind of what I meant. It's almost inevitable that the double headed hydra of UD and MV will gobble up most of South Park. Higher education and medical care, the only two decent business formats left in the US.

The fairgrounds are extremely old school - dilapidated antique buildings, the roundhouse, etc. It could have a lot of atmosphere and uniqueness if it weren't such a dump. It is also welcome diversity in that part of town - a patch of mostly open space in an urban environment.

^Very sorry, CP! I should have specified!

Ohioan58 and Joe in Dayton called it with regards to Miller-Valentine and MVH wanting to purchase the property.


Thank you for posting the thread to begin with and being in the know about the stadium!

I may have just seen the article and wrote about it first. I don't have any interest in "first post!!!!" (This isn't Slashdot, if anyone here knows about that...)

I seriously believe everyone must try to cultivate and maintain a real sense of humor if we are to survive as a species.

I have heard that the University of Dayton wants the property to build a new basketball arena. They want an arena that meets the NCAA requirements for hosting the sweet sixteen rounds for the men and a final four for the women.

I've heard that rumor as well but I don't know if it has any substance.

^I still think it would make sense if UD had bought the former Delphi site at Edwin C. Moses and I-75 for that purpose. Then it would have a good, suburban-style location close to campus AND lots of highway visibility.


Instead they are building a truck stop. Sometimes stupidity like that leads me to really believe this city has no vision.

I think UD is trying to get away from the river's edge. UD arena has regular flooding problems being that it is built into the ground and so close to the water table.
