A City Center is transformational, fulfilling the need place to gather while improving opportunities to live, work, and play.

Community Details
The 1994 merger of the Village of Riverside and Mad River Township created, in part, 'six disconnected’ islands, limited parcel sizes, with the largest vacant parcel in the city being a 43-acre brownfield. The physically fragmented makeup of Riverside continues to present development challenges, significantly limiting investment and development interest.
Absent a downtown or established community destination, our residents have never experienced the benefits of a physical place that supports the community’s identity, come together, and establish a healthy sense of community. Locations that are well-documented as an essential foundational element for a City and the community to connect, trust and thrive.

The Springfield Street Corridor (intersecting with Harshman Road) was chosen for the study being both centrally located in the City and fulfills a priority quality of life need for the Riverside community. The survey results and feedback collected from the residents, business owners and stakeholders during the comprehensive plan update (2021-2022), guided by MKSK professional planning group, identified an enthusiastic and majority interest for a City Center area.

The City of Riverside is committed to fulfilling the collective voices of the residents to develop a ‘place’ that connects, offer diverse amenities and housing options, a destination for visitors and regional consumers, and attract new investments. The planned Riverside City Center project is the first phase to build great places in Riverside to gather, inspire pride and spark new investment.

Findings from the corridor study would be applied to define this transformational development project and ultimately, support our neighbors; City of Dayton, Fairborn, Beavercreek, Huber Heights, the U.S. Air Force Museum and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
