The Phoenix Project is a public-private partnership that is investing millions of dollars for redevelopment activities in the greater Fairview neighborhood of Dayton, Ohio. This neighborhood is home to Good Samaritan Hospital, one of the largest employers in the area. In partnership with the City of Dayton and CityWide, an ambitious plan for revitalization has developed. In 2004 the Phoenix Stakeholders organized into a group called the Phoenix Investors and a comprehensive vision for neighborhood revitalization was developed. To date, the partners have contributed $7M each to the project. These dollars have been leveraged with other resources that have resulted in a $78.2M investment in the Phoenix Project area.
