Butler County’s Trenton, Monroe join Great Miami Riverway Coalition

Butler County’s Trenton, Monroe join Great Miami Riverway Coalition – which represents a $913 million tourism impact.

The two newest additions, both from Greater Cincinnati, will further existing efforts to increase economic and community investment to attract more visitors, customers, jobs and residents to the area.

The Great Miami Riverway, a program of the Miami Conservancy District’s River Corridor Improvement Subdistrict, is a partnership with local communities to support and encourage people to live, work and play safely along the 99-mile Great Miami River.

“We are tied together by a common thread – the Great Miami Riverway,” said Christian Mattingly, city of West Carrollton Parks and Recreation director and chair of the Riverway Coalition. “By bringing our communities together, we are seeing millions of dollars of public and private sector investment in our Riverway communities.”

Both Trenton and Monroe feature local shops, brewpubs and restaurants that draw people to the Great Miami Riverway.

Recent programs through the coalition include the development of a “Riverway App” to help visitors explore riverfront communities and discover recreation. More than 30 kiosks are now installed in communities for visitor wayfinding along the river. In 2023, both river and trail events were held including the Great Float, the Smallmouth Bass Fishing Challenge, a half-marathon and the River Bike Ride.
