President Obama addresses a crowd of over 9,500 at triangle park in Dayton, Ohio on Tuesday.
President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden campaigned in Ohio Tuesday. At Dayton’s triangle park, he urged supporters to vote early and worked to fire up the base two weeks before the election. Mr. Obama accused Republican challenger Mitt Romney of being all over the map on foreign policy, education, and hit him hard on his position on the auto industry.
The City of Dayton is spearheading a project aimed at extending Patterson Boulevard Canal Parkway. The Dayton Daily News reports that the city will be using a $2.2 million dollar grant in to expand the Parkway the length of four blocks.
The State of Ohio awarded the grant to the City in 2008 to begin construction on a cultural project. Original plans were to fund a mixed-use project in the RiverScape area. Those plans fell through.
The City was allowed to use that money for the Canal project.
