Dayton, Kentucky city officials see limitless potential at the Ohio River waterfront, so they are teaming with several other Northern Kentucky cities to better utilize the space.

Dayton is exploring its options for the Southbank “Riverfront Commons” project that will connect cities from Ludlow to Fort Thomas with a 11.6-mile walking trail. Each city is responsible for its own section, including funding, design and specific features.

Dayton is working with community members collecting input and also a local design firm on a comprehensive plan.

The city is waiting to see if it received a $600 thousand dollar grant. If approved, city officials said the first phase of walking trail could be installed in the next 5 years.

Another change to the riverfront are plans for 2,000 homes. The first model is almost complete and work on three more is expected to soon be underway.

City officials said the starting price is $1 million to $1.2 million, but that could drop depending on how the market responds. There are also plans for multi-family housing.

Dayton has 5,300 residents, but city officials once the construction is complete that number could be closer to 10,000 under a 20-year plan.
