BEAVERCREEK — Ronald Roddy, DDS will soon have another reason to call Beavercreek home after construction of his new dental office at 4090 Indian Ripple Road. Roddy Dentistry plans to start working on the site plan soon for the new location.
“I appreciate the investment in the Beavercreek community,” Beavercreek City Councilman Chad Upton said.
Roddy requested rezoning for 1.733 acres of land for property at the intersection of Indian Ripple Road and Apple Blossom Place. It’s for the property next to the daycare facility and across the street from the Vineyard Church.
It’s a “T” shaped property and currently zoned for a one family residential home. Roddy requested permission to have the property zoned as RO-1, residential office district.
Because of the size and shape of the property, the zoning department had previously stated, “Given the typically shallow depth and narrow lot configuration, development or redevelopment of the properties on the north side of Indian Ripple should be restricted to smaller commercial operations or office uses.”
By zoning the property as an RO-1, it strictly prohibits retail and making this the perfect solution for the property. RO-1 zoning allows for businesses such as attorney offices, hair salons, and dentist offices. John Albrecht of R.A.
Rhoads Custom Homes in Centerville presented the plans to city council indicating that the dental clinic would consist of two separate buildings, one for the dental clinic and the back office for possible storage space.
The request was approved, allowing R.A. Rhoads and Roddy to begin the site plan for this piece of property. Once approved through the Beavercreek Planning Commission, it will be brought to city council again for final approval.
