Fairground bid rejected by Vandalia again

The University of Dayton and Premier Health announced plans to buy the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in January.

VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) – The Vandalia City Council rejects a second proposal relocate the Montgomery County Fairground there.

According to our partners at the Vandalia Drummer News, the council unanimously decided during a Saturday morning work session that it could not support the 12-million dollar event center and fairgrounds.

For the location to move forward the council would have had to re-zone land on Webster Street.

The council says it just wasn’t a good fit for the city.
