Here are four key points about the district that was launched in December 2015 by a tax-sharing district for Miami Twp. and Miamisburg:

1-The district is a result of a rebranding effort as the Miami Twp.-Dayton Mall Joint Economic Development District adopted a long-term plan for the mall area to keep it a primary shopping, dining and entertainment center.
