April 6, 2017Dear Citizens:
What a great start to the 2017 year. One of the areas that I am focusing in on as Mayor of the city of Trotwood is economic development.
In January our staff met with Andrew Sims and Tyler Warner from the Dayton Area Board of Realtors as well as representatives from United States Congressman Mike Turner's office to discuss our future economic development plans for the city and how we might partner to move these projects forward. It was a great meeting and we are excited about the energy form the collaboration and momentum gained as they unfold.
In the area of business development a new coffee house will be locating in old town. The name is Brown Suga Coffeehouse to be located at 102 E. Main St. Trotwood. This business is expected to be open in September of 2017. We are also proud to announce a future Emergency Medical Center that will be located at 5130 Salem Ave. We have no current opening date set but we are excited to see this grand opening.
Now onto some other news in the housing development side. In the last three months, we have initiated tax foreclosure on 32 houses so that they can be renovated and repurposed by the Trotwood Community Improvement Corporation. This will help remove the look of those blighted houses around you and then give those houses new life with neighbors living in them. It will also improve property values and increase beautification in our neighborhoods. We are so excited for the direction we are moving and we appreciate the support and patience from you as we make these moves for the growth of our city.
Mary A. McDonald, Mayor
City of Trotwood, Ohio
