Articles About Oberer
From significant Village Council decisions to the return of many in-person events throughout the village, 2022 was a big year for Yellow Springs.
Yellow Springs resident and comedian Dave Chappelle has purchased at least some portion of the 52-acre land previously owned by Miamisburg-based Oberer Land Developers.
At it’s regular meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 18, Village Council opted to forego voting on PUD legislation, read a resolution to authorize a settlement agreement, approved pricing on a municipal broadband pilot program, and more.
Sarah Sinclair-Amend, who served as a voting member, resigned Jan. 13; and Matthew Kirk, who served as an alternate, resigned Jan. 6.
The purpose of the meeting was for Village Council members to ask questions about the proposed development to inform their future decision on whether to rezone the 52 acres slated for development as a planned unit development, or PUD.
The first Village Council meeting of 2022, held virtually via Zoom on Jan. 3, began with a series of swearings-in. Mayor Pam Conine and council members Carmen (Lee) Brown, Brian Housh and Kevin Stokes began new terms.
The vote to approve a planned unit development, or PUD, for Oberer has been put on hold for now, but Village Council and the developer must make their case to villagers.
Days after its regular Dec. 6 meeting, where Village Council heard concerns from several villagers, Council decided to postpone the second reading on an ordinance that would grant Planned Urban Development, or PUD, zoning to Oberer for its property on the southern end of the village.
A PUBLIC HEARING WILL BE HELD VIRTUALLY ON THIS PETITION BY THE VILLAGE OF YELLOW SPRINGS PLANNING COMMISSION ON: Tuesday, November 9, 2021, at 6 p.m.
