DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – With the Montgomery County Fairgrounds moving to Brookville, what will become of the current site on Main Street just outside downtown Dayton?

We did some digging and came up with some development plans for what will be called The Midtown District.

The Miller Valentine Group made them available to WDTN.com Tuesday afternoon. Developers want to make a gateway into the city complete with residential, retail, entertainment, business and a hotel.

It wants to create a sort of city inside a city. Plans call for restaurants, fitness center and grocery store to add to the advantages that residents can use.

The University of Dayton is already on board with the initial idea. President Dan Curran

“That is one of the most significant economic development projects in this city, a valuable piece of land, well located, it’s a game changer, so if we had to get involved in any way, you know the University of Dayton will get involved,” said Curran.

Plans for the new fairgrounds in Brookville include an inside and outside pavilion and several new barns.
