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.
