The commission is also expected to get a first look at plans by Beehive Homes for a 24-unit, 15,685-square foot assisted living facility 600 feet southeast of the corner of Lytle-Five Points Road and North Main Street.

A plan for three 24-unit buildings at the site was withdrawn in September.

The applicant is seeking both approvals to allow for the development of the property as an 8-lot, single-family residential subdivision.

Once again, HP Acquisitions is to present plans for most of the 101-acre farm at 605 N. Main St. The Blue Ash-based developer proposes a mix of commercial, single-family and multi-family residential development.

Ted and Becky Hall would continue to live on 16.1 acres on the west side of the property.

The developer was sent back to the drawing board on Jan. 11, March 8 and May 10 by the commission.

The new plan reduces the number of residences from 467 to 463, the number that would be for multiple families from 360 to 356.

More open space is set aside and drug stores with drive-thrus and drug stores without drive-thrus were added and vehicle wash establishments, garden centers and outdoor retail sales were removed from the list of proposed commercial uses.

The commercial development would be built on 17.2-acres along North Main, Ohio 741.

The meeting is to begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Springboro City Hall, 320 W. Central Ave.
