“This is a great opportunity to have the building in the hands of local owners,” said Oakwood Mayor William Duncan. “We are excited that Kettering Health Network wants to invest in the City of Oakwood.”
Kettering also has plans to build a medical office building on the site of a former car wash in West Carrollton, according to Mike Lucking, city economic development director.
In a prepared statement released tonight, Lucking and City Manager Brad Townsend said the Kettering is expected to take ownership of a 3.84 acre property at 744 E. Dixie Drive, the site of the former Sonny’s Auto Spa, later this year.
“This will be a substantial investment, not only to our local tax base, but also toward the health and well-bring of our community,” Townsend said in the statement.
