Builders plan 300-plus new homes in Miamisburg growth area

The separate Miamisburg proposals by Ryan Homes and Inverness Homes would equal about 15 percent of the permits for single-family residences recorded by Home Builders Association of Dayton in 2018.

They would be built in the city’s south side near the Austin Center and Pipestone areas, both growth zones.

Initial plans for Ryan’s Deer Valley development on Benner Road include 187 houses on about 69 acres west of Pipestone Golf Course and south of Mound Business Park, according to the city.

That plan comes after a 127-home concept — called Courseview @ Pipestone — was submitted by Inverness Homes on about 43 acres on Miamisburg Springboro Road that abut the golf course, city officials said.

“It’s great to see these two projects moving forward,” Miamisburg Development Director Chris Fine said in an email. “Miamisburg doesn’t have a lot of land available for new subdivision development, but these two locations in the southern part of the community are ideal.”

Both proposals are months away from being final, but initial projections indicate the homes are expected to cost about $250,000 and up, officials said.

For the Dayton area in 2017, 2,281 single-family residential building permits were recorded, according to the homebuilders group. Last year, those building permits totaled 2,109, according to the HBA, which includes areas in Butler, Greene, Montgomery, Preble and Warren counties.

A three-year run for increasing permits in single-family homes in the area ended in 2017, according to the HBA.

Deer Valley is a revised plan first approved by the city last decade before being shelved after the downturn in the housing market, according to the city. The initial plan approved by the city about 12 years ago called for about 240 homes, Fine said.

“This is not the same product as (developers) presented before,” Miamisburg City Manager Keith Johnson said. “It’s dramatically different.”

City Councilman Tom Nicholas said the initial plan received it’s “biggest pushback” from nearby residents concerned about adequate buffers, an issue developers have so far “responded pretty well” to, Miamisburg Planner Ryan Homsi said.

Homsi said these homes would be built with stone, brick and fiber cement, have basements and range from 1,200 to 1,800 square feet.

The revised proposal includes about 21 acres of open space with lots averaging about 7,400 square feet, according to the city.

The homes may range in price from $250,000 to $300,000, officials said. The would include one- and two-story options, according to Homsi.

The development would have two access points from Benner Road near Mound Road, according to city records. The project is expected to go before council next month, officials said, before heading to the planning commission.

Courseview @ Pipestone is the development that triggered the city’s annexation of about 41 acres of Miami Twp. land completed this year after both jurisdictions approved a tax-sharing deal.

The land will need to be rezoned before a final development plan will be presented. At this point, the plan calls for 88 “traditional” one- and two-story homes with 39 “lifestyle” units, Homsi said.

The projected price range is $300,000 to $400,000, officials said. The plan will likely initially go before city council in May and then to the planning commission.
