Established in 1810, New Carlisle has two major State Routes intersecting in the middle of our community, SR 235 and SR 571, and we are only 8 miles north of Interstate 70 and ten minutes from Interstate 75. Dayton International Airport is twenty minutes southwest of the City and opens up the world market to our area.
New Carlisle has recently undergone many changes. We have become a very progressive, forward looking community. We are in the midst of the largest period of growth we have experienced in over twenty years. This is good news for residents of the City and also the surrounding area, bringing with it the possibilities of new businesses, new industry, more job opportunities, and more housing choices.
The City has been working hard on improving the appearance of our downtown, to make it more welcoming to both new businesses and new patrons. Streets are being rebuilt, new street lighting has been added, and both new pavers and trees add to the look. Additionally, our water plant, finished in 2006, is state of the art and has the capacity to more than meet the needs of the City, well into the future. New housing developments have sprung up, bringing our citizens new choices in housing, from modest two bedroom condominiums to $300,000 family homes and beyond.
New Carlisle has numerous recreational facilities available featuring 6 baseball diamonds, an amphitheater, three basketball courts, 5 play grounds, a skatepark, an outdoor, heated swimming pool, 4 open picnic shelters, and 3 tennis courts. Our log cabin, constructed in 2005, is approximately 1600 sq. ft. and is available to rent for gatherings. It is air conditioned, heated, and has ADA compliant restrooms. Additionally, in 2012 the City finished construction of a 3.6 mile multi-use trail that starts at the south end of town and ends on W. Lake Avenue. All of these make New Carlisle a great place to raise a family and a great place to live.
