I like this cause I understand there are too many chiefs in city government anyway. Too bad they aren't chopping the higher ups but maybe this will be a continuing trend. Consolidation is a good thing in some instances, especially when it keeps services intact.

Job cuts, higher fees may be coming for Dayton's rec services

^ yes, that was it. Many of us would have liked these jobs to come to the City of Dayton but this is still a big win for the county and region.

Before the "We have plenty of fresh water!" angle the local boosters were touting the "90 Minute Market", meaning that Dayton was a good central location for distribution via ground transportation.

This Cat distro center seems to be a win based on this central location selling point.

Regionally, Louisville and Indianapolis are developing a reputation as emerging logistics nodes on the strength of their air freight hubs. The Dayton area has lost it's two air freight activities (Emery and DHL) so presumably it will have limited appeal as a logistics hub. Yet, it seems this area has a locational advantage for ground transport even without the air freight capability or Cat wouldnt have located here. Maybe the same for that new GM distro center in Trotwood?
