DAYTON, OHIO – Today, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10) held a press conference with West Carrollton Mayor Jeff Sanner, the West Carrollton City Council, and West Carrollton Economic Director Mike Lucking to announce $3 million for the City of West Carrollton’s Riverfront Development project. 

 “I want to congratulate Mayor Sanner, the West Carrollton City Council, and West Carrollton City Manager Brad Townsend on an incredible vision. As we learned in the City of Dayton, you have to have a place for people in your city to come together. Once you establish that, the capital follows. We’ve seen it happen in downtown Dayton and will see it here. It’s great to hear from Mayor Sanner that this could be a $75 million investment to redevelop and revitalize this area. The City of West Carrollton is incredibly important to Montgomery County and us. I’m very proud to have helped secure $3 million towards the redevelopment of this site,” said Congressman Mike Turner.

“The Whitewater Park and River District has been a project 25 years in the making. This project will be transformational for the community and as the gateway into our city. Not only is this project going to have an economic impact on West Carrollton, but on the entire region. The West Carrollton River District Project is anticipated to be completed by 2030 with an estimated build value of $75 million. We will have 300 new jobs, equating to about $360,000 yearly in income tax. I want to thank Congressman Turner for his dedication to the City of West Carrollton,” said West Carrollton Mayor Jeff Sanner. “As a former mayor, Congressman Turner understands the value of investing in our cities and making them the best place to work, live, and raise a family. For over 20 years, Congressman Turner has been a strong advocate for the people of Southwest Ohio. I look forward to working with you and partnering for the people of West Carrollton.”


Through the Fiscal Year 2023 appropriations process, Congressman Mike Turner was able to secure $3 million in community project funding for the City of West Carrollton’s Development and Low Dam Improvement Project.

The money will be allocated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The funding Congressman Turner secured will be used to develop the Great Miami River along Exit 47 on I-75 by adding safety modifications to the downstream side of the low dam and re-establish a small craft dock/marina on the river.
