City officials are working with two developers on redevelopment of the northwest corner of Ohio 73 and Ohio 741, Central Avenue and Main Street in Springboro, as construction of the $10 million intersection project is to begin.
Today, Milcon Concrete of Troy is to begin relocating a water line, the first step in reconstruction of the intersection.
City officials said they also were working on agreements with developers charged with revitalizing the northwest corner, for decades the center of the Springboro community, before Settlers Walk or Austin Landing were built.
When agreements are reached, the city and developers are expected to unveil a plan to include new buildings, businesses and public spaces at the intersection.
Comments from the public will be sought during a session to determine what “what types of businesses and services residents would like to see” on the corner that formerly held the Springboro IGA and a strip plaza, according to a newsletter distributed last week by the city.
No dates for the session or information about the developers or plans were available last week.
The developers will not be identified until agreements have been signed, Pozzuto said.
In anticipation of the corner redevelopment, the city plans to have the final building on the property, the former Springboro Flea Market Building, previously known as the Springboro Hardware Building, demolished.
Work is also to begin today on that. The flea market moved to 315 Conover Dr. in Franklin.
