Developer wants to put 14 home on 28 acres along Indian Ripple Rd. east of Country Club of the North

Plans approved for homes in undeveloped area near Greene County airport

The Greene County Regional Planning and Coordinating Commission recently approved a plan for Maxwell Place, a development proposed by Valley Springs Farm in Beavercreek Twp.

The plan proposed to build homes on 14 lots across 28 acres north of Indian Ripple Road between Country Club of the North and the Wood Ridge subdivisions.

The homes will be set back 50 feet from an internal street that will connect to a new thoroughfare yet to be built between Indian Ripple Road and North Valley Road, according to regional planning records.

The residential development will not allow for street parking, and there will be a central location for all mailboxes, according to county records.

The plans include an open-space lot and right-of-way for the “minor arterial called for in the Greene County Thoroughfare Plan,” according to Ken LeBlanc, RPCC executive director.

Valley Springs Farm is the expansive undeveloped land that borders U.S. 35 and North Valley Road and surrounds the Greene County Lewis A. Jackson Regional Airport. The land, about 621 acres, is connected to the property where Maxwell Place is proposed and is being marketed to developers for $10 million.

Valley Springs Farm is owned by brothers Felix and Carlo McGinnis. The brothers inherited the land from their father, who bought it in 1980 and died shortly afterward, according to Felix McGinnis.
