Butler's Union Twp. moving to new offices

        UNION TOWNSHIP — Butler County's fastest-growing township has outgrown its administration building, and officials soon will be moving into new offices.

        Union Township officials said Friday they have signed a five-year, $1.2 million lease of 15,000 square feet in the recently built Centre Pointe office building, just off Interstate 75 at Union Centre Boulevard.

        Township Administrator David Gully said the administration building at 9113 Cincinnati-Dayton Road has been too small for years. It houses the police, courts and other offices. The township offices are scheduled to move by mid-August.

        When the administration offices were built, the township's population was 30,000. But now estimates exceed 60,000. Therefore, the township needs administrative office space to match the growing demands of residents.

        By moving into parts of two floors of the four-story Centre Pointe building at Muhlhauser Road, township administrative offices will be more conveniently located for residents, and parking will be more plentiful.

        The new offices also will offer more public meeting space. Trustee and other meetings are now limited to 178 seats but will grow to 300.

        The former Cincinnati-Dayton Road headquarters will be converted into a justice center.
