Plans for a 12,500 square-foot research and engineering laboratory in the city were approved with a 5-1 vote by the Beavercreek City Council tonight.
The proposed lab, which will be located at 811 Factory Road, will be used by Buckeye Research and Manufacturing.
The research and manufacturing company owner, Robert Deen, wrote the city a letter in July stating the company’s revenue and employees have consistently increased over the last six and half years, but the company needs additional space to continue to grow.
Councilwoman Vicki Giambrone called the project “a great one,” but voted against it because of traffic concerns.
