Symmes Township, Ohio – The entire site of the closed JC Penny store on Union Cemetery Road, including the retail outlets is being proposed to transition into what Nextgen Automotive 4, LLC is calling an “Automotive Retail Destination”. In their application for re-zoning, they say that the “current retail market has forced the closure of the JC Penny facility and many of the retail spaces are also vacant” and the site will be transformed into a “vibrant retail property that will help drive economic growth to Symmes Township and surrounding communities and businesses.”
Below you can view photos of the outlet stores and read the Symmes Township notice of a public hearing on a proposed zone change.
