Auto dealership plan rejected in Miami Twp.

A plan for White Allen to have a second automobile dealership along Springboro Pike has been rejected by a Miami Twp. board.

The township zoning commission voted 4-0 Tuesday night not to recommend to trustees a final development plan for a 20,200 square foot Volkswagon dealership on the township border next to the White Allen European Auto Group.

The recommendation followed a hearing in which questions were raised about the plan’s lighting, landscaping and changes to a previous White Allen proposal.

In March, Miami Twp. trustees approved a lot split for a plan that called for a 9,000 square foot building selling pre-owned automobiles.
