Xenia Ohio Real Estate Comes with Hospitality and Fun
Hello, back again, and I'd like to tell you about an interesting little Ohio community; Xenia. Now, the name actually means "Hospitality" in the Greek language (how cool is that?) and evident to visitors from all over. Xenia is now strategizing to increase the local area's "fun factor" as well.
If you've been considering Dayton Ohio real estate, or somewhere in the Greater Dayton Metro area, Xenia should be high on your list of communities. The first thing you'll notice as you roll into town is the quiet historic look and feel rich with charming architectural details and turn of the century public buildings and homes. You'll find quaint little "mom and pop" stores, boutiques and special interest stores or services, but also some killer places to eat.

Xenia Ohio offers a wonderful quality of "country flavor" lifestyle, but also a growing number of entertainment and recreational opportunities. Locally famous, step back in time and take in a show at the Community Theater after some shopping at places like the Second Act Thrift store or for some unusual and creative local works try the Inner I (eye) Gallery displaying various art mediums and works by individuals with developmental disabilities. This gallery is also an unusual gift shop with Tee's, framed prints, unique calendars and cards among other items. Another very popular summer attraction is Young's Jersey Dairy, a nine mile trip from Xenia. Fun for the whole family, children especially will love the petting and personal interactions with animals and locals will testify the homemade ice cream is the bomb!
Xenia Ohio real estate prices are on the rise, and one can find simple starters to outrageous luxury homes in anything from cute country houses, charming older properties to newer homes and construction in enviable locations, many perfectly suited for horse owners and those seeking privacy.
Fun and Play comes Home to Xenia
Back in the late nineties, Xenia had the "X-plan" which focused mainly on public parks and beautification, however, the city is now formulating what's being referred to as the "Play Xenia" plan, and seeking the engagement and opinions of local home owners and residents. The city wants to hear opinions and suggestions across the board as the plan develops.
Play Xenia is a recreation action plan for Xenia. It starts with the community goals and strategies expressed in X-Plan and identifies more detailed needs and action steps for issues such as park improvements, a potential recreation center, recreation programs, recreation-oriented economic development and partnerships with non-City entities.
Play Xenia will include the following key components:
- Recreation needs assessment
- Extensive public input that includes surveys, online participation, community meetings and focus groups.
- Direct involvement of key recreation stakeholders, including policy makers, facility owners, business owners and program/league managers.
- Action plan that includes recommendations and prioritization/phasing for park improvements, potential joint-use facilities, program enhancement/coordination and economic development strategies.
