Hello, and welcome to the new website for the Downtown Tipp City Partnership. We hope to highlight our amazing historic downtown, upcoming events and activities, and our amazing downtown shops, restaurants, and other service providers. We also hope to pass along updates on city projects that affect the downtown, keep visitors up to date on area attractions and offerings, and share our perspective on keeping Tipp City a great place to live and work.
As with any other “work in progress,” there are certainly things that we’ve forgotten or left out. It’s also possible that, in creating this new and updated version of our existing website, we got some of the information wrong. If you spot anything wrong, out of date, or missing, please email email@example.com and these suggested changes will be forwarded to Bash Foo, our amazing website provider and hosting service. If you’re interested in signing up to get your own website, please reach out to Mike at BashFoo.com for more information.
If you’re interested in watching the trains passing through Tipp, we can recommend a nice empty lot on Sixth Street behind the S&G Painting Building. There used to be an old building here but it was torn down recently and now there is an unobstructed view for at least a hundred feet in each direction up and down the tracks. Some of these locations are private property, so please ask permission before visiting.
From the Wright State University Library on the old Dayton Electric Railway: “According to the collection, the city was serviced by four streetcar lines in 1918. They were The City Railway Company, The Dayton Street Railway Company, The Oakwood Railway Company, and The Peoples Railway Company. By 1930, this system had proliferated into six separate railway companies operating eleven streetcar lines, but no major bus line. Little cooperation existed between the different companies. For a city that was the size of Dayton, such a condition was unparalleled in the nation…”

Join Us in Welcoming Our New Executive Director, Tasha Weaver
The Downtown Tipp City Partnership (DTCP) is pleased to announce Tasha Weaver as the organization’s new executive director. Weaver will step into the role on March 13. Weaver’s training as a respected travel agent, as well as her management experience in downtown retail business locations in Tipp City and Bellefontaine, allows her to bring a unique set of experiences to her new position.
“I’ve traveled all over the world, and Tipp City has something magical about it,” she says. “It’s rare to find a community that is so welcoming, a place where you can walk your dog down the street with a nice drink in your hand and such a wide variety of delicious food options and retail experiences.”
DTCP Board President Chris Snider looks forward to working with Weaver. “Tasha’s background working in small business and merchandising will complement and enhance her relationships with our downtown merchants,” he explains. “She has great communication skills and will do an excellent job of maintaining our positive relationships within the community.
Weaver is excited to learn more about Tipp City and to support the growth and preservation happening downtown. Her first official event as executive director will be on March 17, where she will assist with the third annual St. Patrick’s Day 3.1 Beer Run sponsored by Can’t Stop Running Co. More than 500 runners and dozens of volunteers will have the opportunity to meet Tasha and experience all downtown Tipp City has to offer.
