A group overseeing long-range plans for the Miami Crossing District is exploring upgrades to both interstate gateways to the corridor formerly known as the Dayton Mall area.
The Miami Twp.-Dayton Mall Joint Economic Development District Board of Directors has agreed to contract with a local landscaping firm for concepts to improve the aesthetics and branding at the Interstate 675 interchange with Ohio 725.
The Miami Crossing District is a 2.2-square mile area being rebranded by Miami Twp. and Miamisburg, the two jurisdictions which operate the JEDD. The communities want to better attract people to — and guide them through — the area, which for decades has been a popular destination for shopping, dining out and entertainment.
The board earlier this year hired The Kleingers Group to develop options to improve the landscaping at district’s western entrance at the I-75 interchange of Ohio 725. The group is now looking for ideas to spruce up the eastern gateway.
The landscaping upgrades are among the early improvements the JEDD board is looking to make to the district after it adopted a long-range plan for the area in December 2015.
The study indicated the district that includes Ohio 725 and Ohio 741 could support more than $200 million in investment in retail, housing, infrastructure and landscaping over 12 years.

MIAMI TWP. — A Lyft driver who found a cell phone loaded with child pornography in his vehicle after dropping off a client helped police make an arrest, according to court documents.
Marvin Hemphill, 27, of Valdosta, Georgia, was arrested Jan. 6 at the Staybridge Suites at Austin Landing and was indicted Wednesday on 24 charges connected to child pornography, according to court records.
According to court documents, Hemphill left his cell phone in the Lyft driver’s vehicle after receiving a ride from a Beavercreek restaurant where he worked.
The driver looked at the phone, attempting to determine the owner, and noticed the child pornography and alerted officers, court documents showed.
Police were able to link the phone to Hemphill, who allowed police to search it, and multiple child porn videos were found, the documents read.
Hemphill admitted to police that he knew he had the child porn on the phone and knew the people in the videos were juveniles, court records showed.

— If you love Chicken Nuggets, this job will have you clucking in anticipation every day.
“Just like a good steak, this opportunity is rare,” the British-based B&M budget retailer posted to its website. The job opening is for a “Chicken Nugget Connoisseur,” and the candidate who gets the job will receive a 25-pound voucher every month to spend on “fresh and frozen food” in their local B&M store. The job requires the nugget eater to share feedback with B&M.
“You’ll want to take a bite out of this,” B&M wrote on its website.
So, what kind of job experience does one need for this job?
In its job posting, B&M offers some specific clues:
Getting the 20 share box of nuggets from McDonald's and keeping them all for yourself;
Being the first in the office kitchen whenever someone says “there’s cake”;
That time you tripped and fell at a buffet and saved the plate before yourself;
Going to an event or party because there is free food;
You value the importance of a fish finger sandwich in life;
You can conduct a Powerpoint presentation on the reasoning behind curly fries being nicer than chips;
If you believe you qualify, wing it and apply.
