River Run Project gets closer to fundraising goal

RiverScape MetroPark, just across the river from McPherson Town, has been so successful in bringing people to the river. Now, River Run will get people into the river. Backers of the project to remake the Great Miami River downtown into a water recreation attraction say they’ve raised $3.8 million and will now seek cash contributions from the public to raise the remaining $200,000.

UPDATE! On Oct. 25, 2012 – The Downtown Dayton Partnership announced that the $4 million goal has been met! Construction begins in 2013.


2012 neighborhood cleanup held

About 20 volunteers showed up to perform the annual McPherson Town neighborhood cleanup. Common areas were weeded, bulk trash was gathered from alleys, trees were trimmed and much more. Thanks so much for all who contributed their morning to make the neighborhood look so good!
