The first signs of Union Village — a 1,400-acre, 4,500-home new urbanist community to be built over the next 20 to 30 years in Warren County — should become evident next summer.
The Warren County Regional Planning Commission Executive Committee is to consider the plan for the first phase of the development during a meeting to begin at 1 p.m. Thursday at the county administration building in Lebanon.
The development company set up Otterbein Senior Lifestyle Choices for the project is expected to begin putting in roads and other infrastructure late next spring or early next summer on the $8 million first phase.
“They are fronting a lot of this. They’ve got some protections so they can get it back,” Warren County Auditor Matt Nolan said.
For 30 years, half of the property taxes paid by homeowners and all paid on commercial properties will go into a fund used to pay for roads and infrastructure.
Union Village property owners will be able to enjoy amenities including a town center, places to shop and eat, and a walkable community featuring planned parks and open spaces.
