White Allen's revised plan for a second dealership on Ohio 741 near the Dayton Mall is set to be voted on by Miami Twp. trustees next week.

The new plan, expected to cost at least $3 million, calls for a 20,200 square foot Volkswagen dealership proposed on 3.3 acres next to the White Allen European Auto Group. It was approved by the township’s zoning commission Tuesday night.

The new proposal replaced a plan for a 9,000 square foot preowned vehicle dealership both the zoning board and trustees had earlier rejected.

If approved, the new plan would give the company side-by-side dealerships on Springboro Pike on the borders of the township and Miamisburg.

Trustee approval would add to an automobile sales corridor near the Dayton Mall that includes four Matt Castrucci lots on Mall Park Drive, Walker Toyota on Ohio 741 just south of the mall and Interstate Ford on Ohio 725 west of I-75.

White Allen, which began in the 1930s, also operates Chevrolet and Honda dealerships in Dayton.
