$9 million travel plaza planned at I-71 interchangeBy Lawrence Budd - Staff WriterA 10-acre, $9 million Flying J Travel Center likely will be the first sign of a 380-acre economic development district being formed around the Interstate 71 interchange southeast of Lebanon.The travel center would cover 10.9 of 382 acres in the proposed district. Local officials and land owners hope to draw manufacturing, corporate headquarters or office campuses in addition to restaurants, hotels and other developments typically found around a Flying J Travel Center.“Once you get a Flying J in there, hold onto your hat. More is coming,” said Jonathan Samms, a Turtlecreek Twp. trustee.Pilot Flying J, based in Tennessee, is expected to spend $7.5 million on the facility, about $1.7 million on the land, officials said.Last month, Pilot Flying J said 50 jobs would be created with the opening of a similar center in Iowa. The company did not respond to questions about the center proposed at Ohio 123 and I-71.
^Sprawl is pretty much there already.Edit. Ahhh 123. I was thinking 48. You maybe right. The Little Miami River maybe the only barrier for sprawl now in that area. Also it may reawaken http://www.urbanohio.com/forum2/index.php/topic,6716.0.html

1200 and change is the total in Ohio. NKY is usually around 400-500.
LA Fitness just bought the Urban Active chain of gyms. They claim that there are no plans to close any locations at this time, but there are several locations where they both operate and I can't imagine they'll keep both open. For example, LA Fitness is in the Center of Cincinnati development and Urban Active is in the "Cornerstone at Norwood" development. Also, LA Fitness is at Kenwood Towne Place and Urban Active is right across I-71.
I belong to the cornerstone at norwood location and they claim they are going to keep that location open as well as the LA at center of Cincinnati.
LEBANON — Approximately 100 people came to the Warren County Commissioners Thursday to dispute a proposed truck stop that is planning to come to the area.Pilot Flying J, based in Tennessee, plans to build a multi-million dollar truck stop at the intersection of Interstate 71 and Ohio 123 . A mostly hostile crowd, including the commissioners themselves, said they were not happy about the truck stop coming to the area. But at the same time, the commissioners said there was little they could do to stop it.“I personally and professionally don’t want there to be another truck stop in Warren County at one of our exit ramps,” said Commissioner Pat South....County commissioners did not approve the site plan on Thursday night but conceded they would most likely have to as long as the company met all zoning requirements....... resident Terri Banker: “We ask our kids to perform well in school, get a four-year education and after years of education all we have provided them with is the job of cashier. There was a hope of high-tech, bio-tech – some sort of high-income jobs; if we keep going down this road, we’re jeopardizing that. If you put that truck-stop in at 123, you can forget any high-quality development.”
Maybe their kids don't want to move back to Lebanon and work at that job across the street from mom and dad after four years in college.
