West Carrollton could redevelop 4-acre site in city center district

Nearly 4 acres along a main business corridor in West Carrollton is being targeted for redevelopment with the help of federal aid.

The long-vacant Sonny’s Auto Spa at 744 E. Dixie Drive is expected to be demolished this spring with the help of nearly $177,000 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and filtered through Montgomery County.

The 3.84 acres is in West Carrollton’s City Center district, a mixed use zoning that covers commercial, office and retail use. But no specific plans for redevelopment have been announced.

West Carrollton’s city council accepted the funds this week.

West Carrollton is partnering with the county’s land bank to demolish the building, which has been empty since August 2012 and which the county acquired in December 2016, according to the city.
