New Warren County Community Hosts Groundbreaking Event to Celebrate Opening


September 23 — Union Village held a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday to mark the start of the new Warren County community.

Nearly 100 people, including officials from Otterbein SeniorLife, Turtlecreek Twp., Warren County, Union Village Realty Company, home builders and residents, attended the ceremony. The event was marked by the first residents of the community who cut the ribbon.

The property once inhabited by the Union Village Shakers is being transformed into a quaint and bustling village of up to 4,500 homes.

Jill Wilson, President / CEO of Otterbein SeniorLife, congratulated Union Village Development Company and the cooperation of local government officials for working together on the project which will cover 1,400 acres off Ohio 741 in western Lebanon .

She also praised the work of the Otterbein Property Board which has focused on the highest level of stewardship and complimented the surrounding community which includes the main Otterbein Senior Life campus.

Union Village is also bordered to the north by the $ 15.3 million Warren County Sports Park and 20 courts, which was also built on land previously owned by Otterbein SeniorLife.

Wilson said the organization started thinking about the country’s future in 2006, but was forced to dwell on multigenerational, multi-family development when the recession hit in 2008.

She said work had started on the nearby Miami Valley Gaming Racino in 2014, the Otterbein Property Board was formed to restart work on the development project that incorporates new urbanism into community design.

The first phase of the $ 1.5 billion development includes the city center anchored by an office / commercial building and 89 housing units.

Project manager Matt Obringer first became involved with the project as a planner for the Warren County Planning Department before joining Union Village Development Company.

Oblinger said 17 homes and a townhouse have been completed so far with two single-family homes already occupied.

“It’s going to be amazing,” he said.

Development will be the site of the first Dayton Homearama in a decade that will begin on October 2 and run through October 17. The Homearama will feature 10 single family homes and a townhouse that were built by 11 Dayton area home builders.

“To see something so great in our county is amazing,” said Warren County Commissioner Tom Grossmann. “It will be one of the best developments in Warren County history.”

Twp from Turtlecreek. Administrator Jonathan Sams warmly welcomed Union Village, saying the township had always wanted Otterbein to develop a multigenerational community.

He said it was important for the township to set standards for good quality housing and develop a strong workforce.

During the 40 years of construction of the development, Sams said the township’s population is expected to double.

“Congratulations to the young birth of a bold vision,” Sams said. “It took many years of planning and we are happy that this long plan has become a reality.”
