Montgomery County news: Austin Landing signal plan set for review


Austin Landing signal plan set for review

A proposal to install a traffic light within Austin Landing is scheduled to be considered tonight.

The township’s zoning commission is set to review plans for a traffic signal to be installed near Kroger and Kohl’s on Landing Way. The plan calls for the signal and additional turn lanes to be part of the project, officials have said.

The work would impact the intersection of Landing Way and the current Kohl’s Access Road, as well as the intersection of Landing Way and Ohio 741 at the eastern entrance to Austin Landing, officials have said. The project, estimated to cost about $250,000, calls for the installation of the first traffic signal within the 142-acre development. It would include additional turn lanes at both intersections, officials have said. STAFF REPORT

Intermediate school competing for grant

Brookville Intermediate School is one of 20 schools nationwide to be named a semifinalist in the Northrop Grumman Foundation’s Fab School Lab Competition.

Last June, the school submitted a 2-minute video and essay for a chance to win one of five grants worth up to $100,000 for a state-of-the-art STEM Lab from Northrop Grumman Foundation. Out of the 200 middle schools around the country to apply, Brookville is one of only 20 semifinalists.

“The vision for Brookville is to create a state-of-the-art design studio that contains robotics equipment, science kits, microscopes and other learning tools and provides a designated space for our students to learn. That’s what a Fab Lab is,” said Brookville STEM teacher Katie Henry.

Grant winners will be determined by votes from the public on Facebook.
