Early Vision For Fairgrounds Site Revealed
Early redevelopment plans for the Montgomery County Fairgrounds were unveiled yesterday by Premier Health and the University of Dayton.
Developers envision a walkable, and environmentally sustainable neighborhood that includes mixed income housing, green space, and retail shops. The historic roundhouse is also expected to be a feature of the neighborhood.
The project is aimed at boosting economic development in the downtown area.
The vision was created by Columbus-based urban design planning firm NEXT. Company officials say they took input from more than 600 people who submitted ideas during the planning process.
The master plan for the 38-acre site is not yet finished. It’s expected to be finalized in early spring.
