The Springboro Planning Commission will again review plans, including 467 residences, for development of 86 acres of the historic 101-acre Easton Farm.

On Wednesday, Hills Properties is to present its latest tweaking of its plan for the development on North Main Street, Ohio 741, between the city’s central crossroads at Main Street and Central Avenue, Ohio 73 in Springboro, and the Settlers Walk planned development.

The plan now proposes a 17.2-acre commercial development on Main Street, 31.6-acre single-family residential and 28.5-acre multi-family sections in the center of the property and 9.4 acres of single-family homes in the northwest corner.

It would be the developer’s third appearance on the project, which has drawn opposition from neighbors and others.

In March, commissioners and staff told Michael Copfer of Hills he needed “at least one more work session” to submit a list of approved uses, develop the road system and finalize other details of the development.

Two of the property owners, Becky and Ted Hall, are to continue living at the back of the property.

Becky Hall said she favored the plan mainly because her sister, who owns half of the farm, is ready to sell.

The meeting is to begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Springboro City Hall, 320 W. Central Ave. in Springboro.
