Any big-box store that comes knocking will get a "No thank you" from the five townships and counties and other project partners that wrote a major land use plan to develop the 1,200 acres of open land southwest of the Dayton Mall that are criss-crossed by Austin Pike, I-75, Springboro Pike and Byers Road."Our goal is to NOT have that become a retail center," said Steve Stanley, executive director for the Mongomery County Transportation Improvement District. He updated local commercial developers and Realtors on the project last week at the Dayton Area Board of Realtors' annual real estate conference in downtown Dayton."We made a very conscious decision from the beginning that anything built there will not undermine the Dayton Mall," he said.
I don't see how adding an exit will hurt anyone, I believe it will add to the area. Union Centre has proven to be beneficial to West Chester and the Cincinnati/Dayton Metro. New jobs are being created there, unlike what is going on in some parts of the metro.
^Union Center has successfully pulled jobs from other cities and attracted jobs that could have gone to older, suffering municipalities.
Well that's why we are a capitalistic society and competition is alive and well. I certainly don't feel bad for Cincinnati not getting the new Dell Distribution center, when Cincinnati could've easily filled a vacant warehouse with Dell.
