The rivers through downtown have already attracted a number of projects along — and within — their banks over the past few years.

The fast rise of commercial and residential properties in the Water Street District and completion of RiverRun, the kayak play area on the Great Miami River, are among the most recent developments in the river corridors’ evolution.
In addition to the survey, public input sessions are scheduled for later this month.
The plan will be pulled together over the next year by the city of Dayton, Five Rivers MetroParks and the Miami Conservancy District along with the Downtown Dayton Partnership, Montgomery County, Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, and Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority.

The plan area extends about three miles from downtown along each of the four waterways:
- Great Miami River south to Carillon Historical Park
- Stillwater River north to Wegerzyn Gardens MetroPark
- Mad River east to Eastwood MetroPark
- Wolf Creek west to Wesleyan MetroPark
Scarff said the project design team wants input from as many people as possible both through the survey and at the community meetings to learn “how the greater Dayton community wants to use their river corridors — what dreams and aspirations we have for them.”
