A developer seeking to build new homes in Miamisburg wants to expand the plan to include more units and make other changes.
A revised proposal off Miamisburg Springboro Road next to Pipestone Golf Course and near the Austin Boulevard interchange now calls for 133 new homes – six more than initially planned, according to city records.
The Aberdeen subdivision plan – formerly Courseview at Pipestone - by Fischer Homes would also add a small parcel of city-owned land to the 42-acre project, Miamisburg records show.

The revisions also call for a different mix of home types, changes to the internal circulation and road way network, and a new access for point off Medlar Road, Miamisburg Development Director Chris Fine said.
“They have made modifications to that plan,” Fine told Miamisburg City Council Tuesday night. “And under code, those modifications are significant enough….that a more significant review process” is needed.
The revised plan will now go to the city’s planning commission. That panel has 60 days to review it before returning it to city council for a public hearing, records show.
“The housing types and the mix of housing is a little different,” Fine said. “And because of this these changes need to go back to the planning commission and even back to council.”
A final development plan would then need approval before the homes can be built, city officials have said.
Aberdeen is one of two new housing plans in Miamisburg that - if approved – would add 330 homes combined in the city’s southern end.
Those two projects constitute what officials have said would be the most homes built in Miamisburg since the 1990s.
Oberer Development and Ryan Homes want to build the Deer Valley subdivision, which proposes 197 new homes on 86.6 acres off Benner Road near the Mound Business Park.
Both projects were granted zoning changes by city council. The Deer Valley zoning change vote was questioned by residents who had concerns about traffic, safety, noise and the environment, among other issues.

The Aberdeen developer wants to buy 0.3 acres of city-owned land as part of the changes, records show.
The first plan included one access way from Miamisburg Springboro and one from Medlar. The new one calls for the Medlar access to be directly across from Medlar View Elementary School’s entrance, records show.
It would also change the mix of homes to include 88 lifestyle units an 45 traditional houses.
Traditional homes would be two story and lifestyle dwellings one story, records show. Initially, the plan called for 39 lifestyle and 88 traditional homes, according to the city.
