Together with our many partners and friends, we are working to revitalize the Peace Corridor in support of community and business desires, and to establish a quality of life that is unmatched elsewhere in the City of Dayton.

We will leverage principles of the “Welcome Dayton” initiative, to create an area that is deliberately friendly to diverse cultures and peoples.  We will also reinforce the rich history of diversity -- past and present -- along the Corridor.

Another goal is to serve as an “Information Exchange” for the neighborhoods, businesses and institutions around the Peace Corridor, to facilitate interaction and communication among the entities.

Together, we plan to establish the reputation of the Peace Corridor as a destination for recreation, entertainment and commerce, with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and as a great  place to live.

We are building on our historic legacy, unique neighborhoods, and economic potential.

Our goal is to become a regional destination for those seeking eclectic experiences, diversity and community, budding gardens, walking tours, bike paths, and friendship. 

The Salem Avenue Peace Corridor, LLC, (SAPC) works to promote and unify the communities, residents, businesses, and institutions along the Corridor. 

We seek to create an environment that truly reflects our Shared Values of Safety, Prosperity and Quality of Life.
