During 2022, the Greendale Redevelopment Commission (GRC) continues to work diligently on various projects to retain existing jobs, bring new jobs to the area, increase our overall tax base, and improve Quality of Life in Greendale. A majority of our focus in 2020 and 2021 was on sourcing partners to help Greendale ease our housing shortage. This resulted in our partnering with a local developer who broke ground in 2021 on The Crossing at Tanners Creek, an 80+ united single-family residential PUD development. A multi-family proposal was turned down due to zoning issues.
2022 Projects include:
- Continue to work with Utility Department on upgrading the Greendale electrical system.
- GRC continued to work closely with the Dearborn County Visitor’s Bureau on a Gateway Beautification Project for the I-275/U.S. 50 Corridor. All funding was approved, and the project was completed in the fall of 2021. We are providing ongoing maintenance, with the assistance of the Dearborn County Visitor’s Bureau.
- GRC and City of Greendale had approved funding, with TIF dollars, for Phase I of our Trails Master Plan to improve Quality of Life in Greendale. This project was completed in 2022. GRC is gearing up to begin working on plans for other trails to connect to Ohio and Lawrenceburg.
- GRC worked with a developer on infrastructure on their parcel(s), with one business to be completed in March of 2023.
- GRC continued to work with Anchor Glass Co., on their $70+ Million Dollar Expansion Project, which was completed in 2022. Anchor has been working diligently on painting and siding their facilities to improve façade of their property.
- GRC continued working with The Crossing at Tanners Creek, single family development.
- GRC has continued our work of cleaning up the South Entrance into Greendale, with the goal of creating greenspace.
- GRC and City Staff continues to meet with Catalent staff to receive updates on Phase II, the addition of a new piece of equipment, which began in 2022.
GRC continues to focus on projects included in the updated Comprehensive Plan that GRC funded, by beginning projects included in the Plan, and meeting and negotiating with prospective developers.
Discussions continued with prospective developers and the owners of the Old Argosy Surface Lot on U.S. 50 regarding infrastructure improvements and development opportunities.
GRC provided $240K in funding to Lawrenceburg Community School Corp for ongoing safety programs and improvements to facilities.
GRC worked with the Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation in 2020 to obtain a $625K Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund Grant toward adding or extending reliable high-speed internet for LCSC Students and Staff. From that, City Staff chose Alta Fiber (Cincinnati Bell) as a partner for this project, which was installed in 2022 and will continue in 2023.
GRC staff assisted with One Dearborn on countywide projects during 2022, such as a business retention and expansion program, a Countywide Master Trails Program, and other aspects of the One Dearborn Pillars.
All in all, a very productive year despite the continuing threat of Coronavirus!!
