River Ridge officials present request for grant funds



Wastewater Superintendent Len Ashack added later in the meeting that change orders in the construction costs for the treatment plant are being included for the increase of flow. The changes to increase capacity would not cover the amount that River Ridge was referencing. 

“It’s just coming up with the money to handle another 6 million gallons,” Ashack said. “That’s why capacity is in the discussion between them and us is so we can start capturing some money and putting it in reserves, so we don’t have to go back to the rate-payers and get another rate increase.”



Wheatley provided an overview of the projects that are ongoing near the area that would be served by the new sewer line.

“There’s actually dirt moving on three separate buildings that will total 950,000 square feet,” he said.

Among those spaces are the first of what is planned to be three buildings at America Place at River Ridge that would total 150,000 square feet of space. Phase two and three, when constructed, would add 200,000 square feet and 320,000 square feet, respectively.

Construction is also under way on a site at 800 Patrol Road for a 300,000-square-foot space and across Cox Street, which is being renamed, a property being developed by Capstone Reality will add a 500,000-square-foot building, 

In addition to the projects under construction, Dayton, Ohio-based The Standard Register Co. previously announced that it plans to locate in the former US. Census Bureau building along Patrol Road; American Fuji Seal Inc. has initiated a purchase agreement with the River Ridge Development Authority to purchase more than 23 acres of property located directly behind the center, next to America Place; and Wheatley said there are plans to add a retail space and an office space between Amazon and Capstone.

“With the amount of inquiries that we get, we feel fairly confident we’re going to see this sort of pace for the foreseeable future,” Wheatley said.
