There’s a lot happening with the Dayton Main Street Program. With Trotta’s Steak and Seafood, Hometown Heroes, and the Salon Shop and Brow Bar, we have had three new businesses open this year!
Body of Art Tattoos at 618 Sixth Avenue will be our fourth new business opening this year with their grand opening on July 6, 2017. We will start the festivities with a ribbon cutting at noon.
Our first Food Truck Thursday was a big success, and a lot of fun. Our next Food Truck Thursday will be on Thursday, July 13 from 11 AM until 1 PM at Memorial Park when we will host Remi J’s BBQ and Kona Ice.
On Saturday July 22, we will have our annual Dayton City-Wide Yard Sale. If you haven’t registered your Yard Sale, there’s still time you can register on-line at www.daytonky.com/yard-sale or call the city building at 491-1600.
We also learned that three projects receive NKY Nano Grants in Dayton. The Dayton Band program received a $250 grant support a concert in September at Memorial Park, Lincoln Elementary School received a $250 grant for a mural, and The Lodge received a grant for The Front Porch Concert in October. Great Job!
Trees! A few months ago, the Dayton Main Street program received an Urban Forestry Grant from the Campbell County Conservation District to plant trees in Dayton. If you’d like a tree in front of your house or business, the cost will be $25. For more information check out the treeDevelop Dayton page at www.daytonky.com/trees.
