Dayton eyes zoning change for Wright Brothers Airport

Local News

MIAMI TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – The City of Dayton is attempting to re-zone the Wright Brothers Airport located in Miami Township.

The city wants to change the zoning from airport to multi-purpose.

Altogether, Dayton wants to re-zone more than 300 acres of land on and around Wright Brothers Airport. 

The re-zoning would allow offices along with research/industrial buildings to be constructed around the airport.

The City of Dayton pitched the idea to Miami Township that re-zoning would not compete with existing businesses but would cater to aviation and defense contractors. 

If you visit the Wright B Flyer museum you can see just how rapid the growth is around Austin Landing. 

Miami Township has been active in re-zoning properties over the last few years to better fit the areas needs. That’s also something Dayton’s proposal points too. 

Neither side would talk about the re-zoning proposal ahead of its reading.
