Union Village, the 1,400-acre planned community in Warren County, is under construction.
Over the next 30 or more years, $1.5 billion in investment, 4,500 homes and 12,000 residents are projected in this community anchored by the Warren County Sports Park at Union Village.
Heavy equipment is working on the land for the first phase, across Ohio 741 from Otterbein SeniorLife’s main campus between Springboro and Mason.
The first phase is to include the town center anchored by Otterbein’s office building and 89 homes.
Crews are laying sewer lines and grading off land where the first section is to be built.
Work also continues on the Otterbein campus, where the main building is undergoing major renovations and a new entrance is being developed on the north side of the campus.
Otterbein officials indicated they were still waiting for final permission from the U.S. Corps of Engineers.
Ohio Department of Transportation officials said they were still ironing out final details on the entrance to Union Village.
