The business is also considering moving to a Northern Kentucky site and expanding there, Kettering records show.
The application for the ED/GE program’s fall 2021 funding cycle would go “to offset the expense associated” with the expansion “and improvement to the existing facility’s” parking lot and roof, documents state.
Council is also set to consider:
•Proposed changes to allow housing and restaurants at Kettering Business Park and Miami Valley Research Park.
Amendments to the city’s comprehensive plan and zoning code would permit expanding land uses on large tracts on a limited basis to adapt to changing trends that attract a wider variety of industries and jobs, officials have said.
Mount St. John and the Bergamo Center for Lifelong Learning leaders have questioned some of the zoning changes. Specifically, they raised concerns at a public hearing about how a residential development of about 300 units now in the planning stages would impact area noise, traffic and environmental issues.
A vote on the changes is expected to occur next month, according to City Manager Mark Schwieterman.
•Accepting a grant from the Kettering Parks Foundation for new furniture, fixtures and equipment for Rosewood Arts Centre, the site of a $4.3 million renovation.
Work on the 56-year-old former elementary school started last month after being delayed a year due to the coronavirus.
It is a multiyear, phased project of a facility that serves more than 80,000 people annually in the Dayton-area through a variety of visual and performing arts, according to the city.
The three-part renovation will continue through 2023, officials have said.
