Historic Downtown


Since the early 1990s, the City of Miamisburg and community members have actively supported policies related to the revitalization and historic preservation of its downtown district. City officials consider downtown to be a community asset and a key part of Miamisburg's heritage and uniqueness. They are intent on preserving downtown as a vital part of the City.

To that end, there have been significant efforts focused on capital investment and public/private partnerships, with a goal of making downtown Miamisburg a destination for dining, entertainment and other activities. Following the recommendations of a master plan developed for downtown and adjacent riverfront area, ImageMiamisburg City Council in 2001 approved the formation of Downtown Miamisburg, Inc. (DMI) as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. This new entity was formed to lead the implementation of that master plan. Leadership for DMI is comprised of a nine-member Board of Trustees (listed below) that includes local and regional business and government representation.

Significant progress to date includes the acquisition of numerous properties along the riverfront outlined in the master plan. This area is designated for future park/green space, a key component of the blueprint for the future of downtown.

Also working to enhance downtown is an active organization comprised primarily of downtown business people called the Miamisburg Merchants Association (MMA). The MMA meets bi-monthly to review issuesImage important to maintaining and improving downtown as a viable place for successful commerce.

In 2008, the City appointed Katie Frank to the new part-time position of downtown development coordinator.  Frank serves as liaison with the MMA and helps coordinate a variety of downtown-related projects for the City.
