Developer Miller Valentine has released plans for the redevelopment of the 38-acre Montgomery County fairgrounds. The current site of the Montgomery County Fair could become a mixed-use development that resembles The Greene in Beavercreek.
Dayton's new "Midtown District" would be 60% residential and 40% commercial, including at least one hotel, several restaurants and other retailers, and a 35,000-sq.-ft. grocery store.
The passage of two zoning ordinance changes by the Brookville City Council on Tuesday night paved the way for the Montgomery County Fairgrounds to relocate there, but some involved with the project say there is still a lot to do before the move can take place.
Tuesday night’s vote would have taken place two weeks ago, but Brookville City Council tabled it until they could secure funding for a road extension through the fairground.
The Montgomery County Fairgrounds is getting closer to finding a new home. The Brookville city Council will take a final vote on two zoning ordinances Tuesday that will pave the way for the fairgrounds to move from its current Dayton location to Brookville.
But obstacles remain. Even if the city zoning ordinances are passed, there is an issue surrounding the funding of an access road on the proposed property that could help ease traffic problems in the area.
