Next, Buchanan said he anticipated development of a restaurant or microbrewery with 100 parking spaces at the “hot corner” created by the new intersection.
The Fig Leaf microbrewery had looked at this location before opening on Cincinnati-Dayton Road, south of Middletown, Buchanan said.
Buchanan said he was looking for partners to develop the next phase, including a 30,000 square foot strip center at the back of the property and two out-lots on Main Street.
This could be completed in 2018, Buchanan said.
At 7 p.m., the planning commission is to review the preliminary plan and a rezoning request for Buchanan’s project.
The commission meets at city hall, 50 S. Broadway in Lebanon.
