DCP Article


More great publicity for the neighborhood! A big thanks to Katie at the Dayton City Paper for writing this article about St. Anne's Hill.

The best part is the growing recognition of our community as an arts district for downtown and the Dayton region, anchored by Stivers School for the Arts.

Thanks to Missing Peace Art Gallery, the High Street Gallery, St. Anne's Hill Violins, and Gerald S. for talking about their respective crafts.... and the New York Pizzeria for their great food!

CRA News

FYI, Part 3.

I've blogged about this before, but most people still don't know about the CRA program that provides property tax abatements in most of Dayton's historic districts, including St. Anne's Hill. Recently, a new
Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) was created for our neighbors in the Twin Towers neighborhood.

Here are some excerpts from the article about it in the Dayton Daily News...

The designation means that property owners who spend at least $5,000 on their single-family home or two-unit apartment could be eligible for a 100 percent property tax exemption for 10-years on the increased value resulting from the improvements....

The push for the designation comes from East End Community Services Corporation, the Oberer Development Company and St. Mary’s Development Corp., partners in Twin Towers Crossing, a 40-unit housing development....

About 25 of the homes valued at $200,000 are under roof with drywall going up.

Anyone making substantial renovations (improvements) to a property in St. Anne's Hill can also qualify for the tax abatement. For more information, contact the City of Dayton Department of Planning & Community Development at 333-3670.
