Waterford Landing is located east of Interstate 675 off Yellow Springs-Fairfield Road. Ground broke on the first section of the subdivision in late 2010, and more than 200 lots exist already.
The growing neighborhood is a development of CESO, Inc. The builder is Ryan Homes.
Plans for the new section call for the extension of Baywood Drive and the creation of a new street, Regatta Park Drive. The new lots will range from 6,336 to 9,629 square feet.

An additional 6-acre lot will be open space with a retention pond to be maintained by the homeowners’ association.
Jim Miller, the Bath Township zoning inspector, raised two issues regarding the development in an email with Kathleen Riggs, the Fairborn city planner. Riggs said the issues are being addressed.
“The township walking/running path and some of our parking lot currently exists on land for this development,” Miller wrote. “Another concern would be some of the proposed residential lots would have back yards going right up to the fencing of our road department facility. Anyone eventually owning those particular properties would certainly be adversely affected by sight and sound.”
Lance Oakes, a developer, told the planning commission the developers are negotiating with the township regarding the encroachment issue and he does not foresee future problems with the facilities garage, according to city documents.
