Miami Twp. may extend road, add traffic signal on Ohio 741

The changes sought include tightening development standards on about 17 acres called Vienna Center, which includes land where an assisted-care facility is planned, township records show.

The plan calls for extending Vienna Parkway – which ends about 650 feet before Ohio 741 – to the state route with two westbound lanes (including a turn lane) and an eastbound one.

Trilogy Health Services – working with the township’s Community Improvement Corp. - is seeking to build an assisted living and memory care facility on the south side of the extension, across from Cox Arboretum.

“At one point I was told that Trilogy was going to be pushing for groundbreaking in June,” said Miami Twp. Board of Trustees Vice President John Morris, head of the CIC. “Clearly, that’s not going to happen. That’s a very aggressive schedule.

“But I do believe we’re going to have this road and see construction in place in 2020,” Morris said. “So I think that within the next 18 months, most of this is going to happen.”

Specifically, trustees are set to vote on a zoning commission recommendation to make “major modifications” to a preliminary development plans for the site, records show.

“The request is to modify existing development standards within the Vienna Center Planned Unit Development to further limit specific uses permitted within the development, modify the placement of Vienna Parkway in connection to Springboro Pike (Ohio 741) and to modify the standards relating to roofs and building materials,” according to township records.

Last summer the township’s CIC bought nearly 12 acres north and south of where Vienna Parkway dead ends. The acquisition from Zengel Construction will allow for the road extension, township officials said.

Currently, Vienna Parkway begins at Mad River Road and runs east and west through a residential area.

Trilogy is a Louisville, Ky-based company that provides assisted living or personal care, memory care, post-acute health care services and independent living, according to its website.
