The Downtown Tipp City Partnership (DTCP) is proud to welcome it’s first 2024 member,  Goodson LMT LLC. Founded in 2022 by a proud veteran and Tippecanoe alumni, Goodson LMT LLC is not just any massage therapy practice. It stands as a test

ament to the resilience and dedication of those who have served our country and now seek to serve our community through holistic healing and wellness.

After suffering an injury during military service, the founder of Goodson LMT LLC discovered the transformative power of medical massage. This experience not only led to personal recovery but also inspired a new mission: to provide the same level of care and comfort to others. Nestled in Tipp City, Ohio, this establishment is quickly becoming a sanctuary for those seeking relief and relaxation.

Goodson LMT LLC offers an array of services to accommodate every need. From the restorative touch of Medical and Swedish massages to the relieving pressure of Deep Tissue techniques, each method is executed with precision and care.

Understanding the immense value of our veterans, service members, and first responders, Goodson LMT LLC extends a 15% discount to these heroes as a gesture of gratitude for their sacrifices. The generosity extends further with a 15% discount offered to patrons for each new referral, fostering a community built on trust and mutual support.

One of the most unique aspects of Goodson LMT LLC is its dedication to cancer care. The founder works part-time with cancer patients at the UVMC Cancer Care Center, providing a compassionate and skilled hand to those undergoing one of life’s most challenging battles. This work underscores the practice’s commitment to healing and serves as a beacon of hope for many.

In addition to the specialized services, Goodson LMT LLC stands out for its consideration of clients with sensitive skin. The founder has crafted a homemade beeswax blend that incorporates shea butter and jojoba oil, offering a natural and gentle alternative to conventional massage products. This attention to detail and personalization is what makes the practice a standout in the wellness industry.

In keeping with the spirit of giving, Goodson LMT LLC hosts Monthly Massage Giveaways, creating opportunities for more individuals to experience the benefits of their services.

Downtown Tipp City Partnership Offers Façade Improvement Plan

By | April 6, 2023

Tipp City, OH – The Downtown Tipp City Partnership (DTCP) modified their Facade Improvement Program (FIP) grant application process last year. The FIP, which was established circa 2008, offers grants along with design assistance to businesses and property owners in Tipp City’s downtown district. The goal of the FIP is to improve the exterior appearance of individual buildings, signs, awnings, and the overall look of the district by leveraging private investment while making revitalization efforts affordable, creative, and community-based.
The FIP offers matching grants of up to fifty percent (50%) of an approved project cost for a maximum amount of $2500. The program typically honors up to three recipients each year. In the past, grants were offered on an on-going, as-needed basis until funds for the year were depleted. Now grant applications will be collected for review and selection twice per year, in April and August. Priority will be given to projects that are most compatible with the vision and goals of the DTCP and their impact on the district.
Applications for this grant cycle are due on April 21, 2023 The DTCP encourages potential grant applicants to meet with the DTCP’s Design Committee before beginning any improvement project. The Design Committee can provide valuable assistance by reviewing conceptual plans, discussing any permits that may be required, and conducting an on-site visit of the building. If interested in consulting with the Design Committee, please call the DTCP office at 937.667.0883 or email
Please visit this link for further details about the FIP grant and application.

Train Tourism

By | March 22, 2023

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…”
