AMATS releases planning study for Rothrock Road/Montrose Area

Over the past few months there has been increased speculation that the Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club located in Fairlawn may move from its existing site to a new site located in Copley Township. AMATS staff has had discussions with the communities of Fairlawn, Bath, Copley, and two private developers about the potential move. Because both stores generate a large amount of traffic, some of the biggest concerns about the development are transportation related.

This study analyzes the potential impacts of commercial sprawl in the Rothrock Road/Montrose area.  Click here for a pdf of the report.
