April showers may bring May flowers but it apparently also brings the moving vans. May is National Moving Month, as those cooped up in the colder months spread their wings and find a new abode. If you’re moving to downtown Dayton for the first time we’d like to say “Welcome!” and please read on for the downtown essentials you need to know about.

New to downtown Dayton? Read on for the essentials you need to know about.

Thankfully at First Place Apartments, the only things you must do after your move into our luxury apartments is call your local internet and cable providers. If your chosen place doesn’t include electricity, you’ll need to give Dayton Power & Light a call. Public water access needed? Contact the City of Dayton Water One Source. Trash removal also comes through the city; you can set it up here.

After your utilities are set, make sure you note Dayton Police Department’s non-emergency number, 937-333-COPS (2677). This number should be used for any situation such as a noise complaint or vandalism report that is not an emergency but still requires police assistance. You should also register your bicycle with the police department, in case your bike is lost or stolen.

Speaking of registration, did you know the city of Dayton requires a dog license? Dog licenses assist you in finding your pet if they become lost. You can get your dog license here.

Where are downtown’s grocery store and gas stations?

You also need to contact the county to register to vote, and to find out where your voting location is. Dayton is in the 10th congressional district.


The nearest gas station to First Place Apartment is the BP at 433 S. Main Street, less than a mile from our building. Downtown Dayton also has a wonderful grocery store, Stop-N-Save Food Inc., located at 36 W. 3rd Street. If transportation is your need, Dayton RTA’s main downtown hub is located only a few blocks from the building, and Link bikes are located throughout downtown.  moving to downtown dayton
