Updated Rules for Courthouse Square

On Tuesday, December 6, 2011, the Montgomery County Board of County Commissioners approved changes to the rules and regulations regarding use of Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton. 

These policy changes reflect a balance between the First Amendment rights of citizens to use Courthouse Square and the integrity of adjacent commercial establishments and the downtown neighborhood.

The changes to the Courthouse Square Rules & Regulations are consistent with Montgomery County’s Parks Policies and include:

-        No sleeping, camping or use of Courthouse Square for lodging.

-        Courthouse Square will be made available for permitted, organized activities and events daily from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m.  These hours do not limit pedestrian use of the Square.

Montgomery County is a proud supporter of free speech and assembly.  Courthouse Square has a long tradition of serving as a space for community events and public expression, however, it was not designed or intended to be utilized as a campground.

Montgomery County looks forward to working with the public to ensure that Courthouse Square remains a place to gather for all of its citizens and the common good of the community.
