Austin Road Addendum: Dayton/Montgomery County Port Authority involvement

One thing I forgot to mention from the Downtown Dayton Partnership’s presentation on Austin Road yesterday- there are four quadrants of land around the interchange. The two on the East side are both owned by RG Properties. The West side is optioned by RG Properties. Part of the North West quandrant- is owned by the Dayton/Montgomery County Port Authority.

Anytime I see mention of the Port Authority, alarm bells ring. This is the shadow-quasi governmental slush fund used to put tax dollars into corporate pockets at a steep discount. MCSi, the ponzi scheme computer supply company that built their corporate HQ in Kettering, only to leave the taxpayers taking a bath.

I’m sure a few of my readers know more about this deal than I do- please feel free to share the info in comments.
