Austin Landing Information
Austin Landing is located in southern Miami Township, just north of Austin Boulevard and east of Interstate 75. It is a mixed use development that is planned to contain multiple corporate offices, retail, hospitality, entertainment and residential uses. The project includes several public amenities, including a public park and recreational trails.
The Austin Landing development does contain public roadways and a public park, but Miami Township Public Works staff does NOT perform work in Austin Landing. The public amenities are funded by using TIF (Tax Incremental Financing) revenues and JEDD (Joint Economic Development District) revenues. Austin Landing is NOT funded by using resident's property tax revenues. The site is under a maintenance agreement for the property's developer to fund, manage and maintain all private and public features including: roadway maintenance and resurfacing, curbs, pavement markings, cross walks, snow removal, street sweeping, sidewalks, traffic signals storm water systems, landscape and irrigation systems, recreational amenities and park maintenance.
TIF and JEDD revenues generated from Austin Landing DO support Miami Township departments and projects and DO offset revenue losses from the elimination of several taxing sources including tangible personal property taxes and estate taxes. Townships in Ohio do not collect sales tax and cannot impose an income tax on property owners.
