A public hearing is set this week for a rezoning request to allow a 191-home development in Miamisburg.
Miamisburg City Council is scheduled Tuesday night to hold the hearing to change 87 acres from agricultural to planned residential, a move neighbors have questioned because of the traffic, noise and lighting they would bring.
The project by Oberer Development and Ryan Homes – Deer Valley – is proposed for vacant land off Benner Road in the largely rural area south of the Mound Business Park and west of Pipestone Golf Club.
The issue has been recommended for approval by the city’s planning commission. A final development plan would need to be approved by that panel and city council before homes could be built, according to the city.
Deer Valley is one of two proposals for new homes in Miamisburg that could bring more than 300 new units to the city. The other, Courseview at Pipestone, calls for rezoning about 42 acres off Miamisburg Springboro Road to build 127 new homes.
The plan for Deer Valley involves homes that would start in size at about 1,200 square feet, excluding garages and basements, according to the city.
The development would have two access ways off of Benner and about 21 acres would remain undeveloped, city records show.
Council is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. at the Miamisburg Civic Center, 10 N. First St.
