DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Fairgrounds to Future has submitted a funding request to the Dayton Development Coalition.

In that application, the developer expects to create more than 100 jobs.

At most, the Fairgrounds Redevelopment group estimates 250 jobs could be generated.

That’s just for the redevelopment of the 38-acre property that used to be the fairgrounds.

As far as what could fill this space, the application says there is potential for just about everything you can think of.

Ranging from commercial space to public space.

The Dayton Development Coalition asks applicants what they estimate job growth could be over a ten year span.
