Pick-Up Zones

Making it even easier to support downtown businesses

As the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to wreak havoc on Dayton’s small businesses, the Downtown Dayton Partnership and the City of Dayton have announced a new strategy aimed at increasing potential for sales of downtown’s collection of local restaurants, pubs, retailers, and other downtown businesses. Customers can access Pick-up Zones: free, temporary parking spaces specifically for carry-out, curbside pickup, and delivery drivers retrieving orders.

For those businesses without a dedicated parking area, Pick-up Zones will offer a new, convenient option for customers. The Pick-up Zones are located in on-street spaces currently designated as loading zones or metered parking. The Zones will be marked with the highly visible, green-branded signage. Vehicles with their flashers on will be permitted to park at no cost for up to 10 minutes within the zone.

Nearly all downtown restaurants and retailers offer pick-up, carryout, and/or delivery options. Click here to view the latest dining options and local shopping destinations.
