Ranking Marks Fourth Win and 14 Straight Years In The Top 10

DAYTON, Ohio – Site Selection magazine announced Monday the Dayton Metro ranked first among cities of its size for economic development projects in its annual Governor’s Cup rankings, marking the 14th consecutive year the region has ranked in the top 10 and its fourth win.

2019 in Review

We have a simple, straightforward mission at the Dayton Development Coalition: To recruit, expand and retain jobs in the Dayton Region. When the year ends and we look back on our work, those three things show the growth of the region’s economic base.

For 2019, those metrics hardly seem like enough. In a year that saw catastrophic storms and horrific violence, the Dayton Region responded with compassion, strength, and resiliency. 2019 marked the year our community let the world see what makes us #DaytonStrong.
