LOCAL NEWS: Fairfield eyes future of struggling section of northern Ohio 4 corridor
City Council agreed to a $12,000 contract with Dayton-based Market Metrics to study the northern section of Ohio 4, which City Manager Mark Wendling said the area has experienced blight and “it’s struggling.”
The project will study Ohio 4 north of Nilles Road to the corporation line with Hamilton. The contract includes Market Metrics analyzing four land-use groups: industrial, office, residential and retail. Kathman said the study would provide the city with “objective opinions regarding the types of land uses that are appropriate for the corridor and can be supported by the local market.”
