Final plans for two new housing developments proposing a combined 324 homes in Miamisburg are not expected to go forward until 2020.

An extension is being sought on a preliminary development plan to build 127 new homes west of Interstate 75 near Austin Boulevard.

Approval of the preliminary plan for the Courseview subdivision expires next month. Miamisburg City Council Tuesday night is set to consider more time for that proposal on more than 40 acres off Miamisburg Springboro Road near Pipestone Golf Course, records show.

City council earlier this month approved a similar extension for the Deer Valley proposal, which involves a plan for 197 new homes off Benner Road near Mound Business Park.

The Courseview “applicant has been working on acquiring the necessary easements in order to extend the public utilities into the site while also while also working with our engineering and public works departments on finalizing pump station details for the site,” according to a memo from Miamisburg City Planner Ryan Homsi.

Inverness Homes proposed the Courseview development on land the city annexed last year from Miami Twp. near the Medlar Road intersection of Miamisburg Springboro Road.

However, this fall Fischer Homes announced the purchase of the majority of the single-family land held by Inverness.

“Due to private negotiations involving the purchase of the previous developer (Inverness) by another developer, the final development plan submittal was put on hold,” Homsi said.

“Now that the purchase is complete, the new developer is beginning the process of working on the final development plan,” he added.

If approved by council, the extension would expire Aug. 20, 2020, records show.

The deadline for the extension for the Deer Valley plan is July 30, 2020, according to the city. Final plan passage is necessary for both projects to begin construction.

Properties for both Courseview and Deer Valley were rezoned due to the housing proposals.

Courseview involves about 42 acres with more than 6 acres remaining undeveloped, according to the preliminary plan. Plan calls 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 Road and one from Medlar Road, according to the preliminary plan.
