BOWLING GREEN - Final plans for the first phase of a large subdivision at State Rt. 65 and Roachton Road in Middleton Township will be before the Wood County Planning Commission when it meets tomorrow.
Riverbend LLC of Northwest Ohio has submitted the final plat of the first phase of the 450-acre Riverbend Lakes. Plat 1, which covers 72.25 acres, is to contain 124 single-family and villa lots.
The development, proposed in 2001 as a golf community, has been revised several times. Planning Director Dave Steiner said developers have acquired the right-of-way to install turn lanes into the subdivision from Route 65, which was a sticking point when the commission last considered the plans in March.
"It's been controversial from the get-go, but from a planning and plat standpoint, it meets all the requirements," he said.
Also on tomorrow's agenda:
The meeting will be at 4 p.m. in the County Office Building.
