Study: Business park best for Dayton land near airport in Miami Twp.

A long-range study focusing on potential development of land near Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport outlines options that include a light industrial park housing at least 500,000 square feet of building space.

The study commissioned by the Miami Twp.-Dayton Joint Economic Development District Board of Directors suggests three configurations for the city of Dayton-owned land – potentially more than 80 acres – south of Austin Boulevard and east of the airport in the township.

The study is one of two the JEDD board has had completed in recent month as it considers long-term plans for the 527-acre airport and surrounding land within its district.

The other, done by Juniper CRE Solutions, suggested the land would be best suited for light industrial use, including those businesses in the aviation and defense sectors.
