Three multi-million-dollar proposals are moving forward this week with rezoning being sought for more than 300 new homes and the relocation of one of the area’s largest auto malls.
More than 165 acres west of Interstate 75 are involved in plans for a pair of upscale housing subdivisions – with units ranging from $250,000 and up — and a larger site for the Matt Castrucci Auto Mall, which includes multiple dealerships and accounts for more than 150 jobs, according to the city.
The new housing is proposed nearest the Austin Boulevard interchange of I-75, while the Castrucci plan is close to the Ohio 725 interchange.
The three projects – if approved – would be a windfall “for all entities that receive property tax revenue in the city of Miamisburg,” according to Miamisburg Development Director Chris Fine.
“The residential developments will likely generate additional income taxes to the city,” he said in an email. “However, that is difficult to quantify because it is dependent on where the occupants of the homes work.”
For comparison, the number new homes proposed off Miamisburg Springboro and Benner roads – if approved – would equal about 15 percent of all 2018 permits for single-family residences recorded by Home Builders Association of Dayton.
Meanwhile, Castrucci’s move from its 17-acre site just north of the Dayton Mall to a larger location west of the mall on Byers Road would keep the automobile dealerships in the city, Miamisburg officials said.
Having three proposals of this magnitude before the city simultaneously is uncommon, Fine said.
“It is a little unusual to see this amount of development activity in the city occurring at the same time,” he said. “However, I think it demonstrates that the business and development communities continue to find Miamisburg as a great place to do business.”
Attempts on Monday to reach representatives for the housing proposals and Castrucci were unsuccessful.
The three projects are all seeking rezoning and preliminary development plan approval in a lengthy process before final plans would be submitted and voted on.
The rezoning requests are set to be formally considered for the first time by Miamisburg City Council tonight. All three would then go to the planning commission before returning to council within 60 days for public hearings prior to a vote, city officials said.
If approved for rezoning, final plans would come later.
The three proposals, according to the city, include:
-Deer Valley subdivision: The Oberer Development plan calls for 191 new Ryan Homes on 87 acres with two access ways from Benner Road. About 21 acres will remain undeveloped.
Homes would range from 1,200 to 3,300 square feet, excluding garages and basements. Rezoning calls for a change from agricultural to planned residential.
-Courseview at Pipestone subdivision: Inverness Homes plans for 127 new homes on 42 acres off Miamisburg Springboro Road. About 6 acres will remain undeveloped.
Plans call for two types of units: “traditional” – predominantly two-story - and “lifestyle” dwellings, which would be single-story and age-targeted for empty nesters.
The proposal includes one access way from Miamisburg Springboro and one from Medlar Road. Rezoning calls for a change from agricultural to planned residential.
-Castrucci Auto Mall: Plans call for the construction of five buildings – four dealerships and a body shop – at the intersection of Byers/Lyons roads.
A body shop, and Honda, Kia, Nissan and used car dealerships are planned for the site’s northern 30 acres. The move would not include Mazda, a brand the business plans to drop.
About 7.5 acres on the south end would remain vacant.
The rezoning request for two parcels is for a change from highway service and office service to special development district.
