The Springboro Planning Commission on Wednesday is to review and possibly vote on plans for a 15,685-square foot assisted-living facility already under construction 600 feet southeast of the corner of Lytle-Five Points Road and North Main Street (Ohio 741) in Springboro.

The 6.3-acre property is to be developed as a 24-unit assisted-living facility operated by Beehive Homes, a national operator with similar facilities in 18 states. The Springboro location, just west of the Woodland Greens residential development, would be the first in Ohio, according to the company website.

“We’re hoping to be open by the fall of 2018,” said John Schaeffer, administrator of the proposed facility already offering tours.

According to staff report submitted for Wednesday’s meeting, the plan was reviewed, but not approved, at the commission’s Oct. 11 work session. The applicant was authorized to submit a plan for formal approval at a future meeting. A similar plan was on the Sept. 13 work session agenda, but was withdrawn.

Site work was continuing on Tuesday.

According to the staff report, clearing and grading of the site as well as footer/foundation work has already begun.

“Clearing and grading is permitted on private, undeveloped property, subject to compliance with sedimentation and erosion control regulations as well as the marking of trees for compliance with landscape and buffering requirements of the local code. Footer-foundation work is also permitted at the risk of the property owner, subject to compliance with a preliminary review by the planning commission and issuance of a building permit,” the staff report said.

Burkhardt Engineering Co. made the application on behalf of CS Five Point LLC. The zoning permits the proposed use and building.

City staff recommended approval with more than 30 conditions.

The commission meets at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Springboro City Hall, 320 W. Central Ave. in Springboro. For more information, call 937-748-4343.
