A “massive Warren County project” that “is expected to grow over three decades into 4,500 homes, a sports complex, commercial services and up to $1.5 billion in private investment,” has begun construction, the Dayton Daily News reports. The Union Village community is “one of the Dayton area’s most ambitious projects” and could eventually house up to 12,000 residents, according to the article. The $15 million Warren County Sports Park at Union Village will anchor the project, and the community is “expected to include a mix of commercial development serving and complementing the residential neighborhoods.” State Senator Steve Wilson (R-Maineville) said the development is “going to be great for Warren County and southwestern Ohio,” calling it a “whole different concept on how to live and work and play.” For more, read the full article
