BUTLER TWP (WDTN) – Butler Township residents sounded-off Wednesday night about rezoning land for City of Union developments.

The people are concerned about how they will be impacted by zoning for new industrial developments.

One of those developments is Procter and Gamble’s new distribution center near Dog Leg and Jackson roads.

It’s expected to bring 800 jobs, but these residents are worried about the added traffic

“I think that this is a fight that really doesn’t have an end,” said area resident Barbara Temple. “We all have to work to preserve out properties and our freedoms and this is just on step of it”

There will be another meeting July 14 at Union city hall.

That’s when the city will take a vote to re-zone 100 acres of land for development. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
