Lightle said a concern for the township is the line-of-sight for drivers who would be exiting and entering Yankee Trace at the new intersection.

The Montgomery County Engineer’s Office conducted a sight-distance study on the proposed intersection, and it met county requirements.
“It barely was sufficient,” said Montgomery County Engineer Paul Gruner. “It did meet the minimum standard.”
The project is being developed by Atlanta-based Yankee Trace Woods LLC. Brian Barnard, CEO of Yankee Trace LLC, said the cost of the project would be around $2 million in infrastructure.

Barnard, a graduate of Chaminade-Julienne in Dayton, has a vested interest in the area.
“My in-laws and my family live in Dayton and I’m from Dayton originally,” said Barnard, who has owned the property for 10 years. “I was trying to bring some economic prosperity back home.”
The lots are “bring your own builder” and are listed by Gerald “Jey” Ellis and Kimberly Graeter of Coldwell Banker Heritage.
The cost of building will vary, but the range for each home is estimated to be between $350,000 and $500,000, according to the developer.
