Demolition of buildings still standing at the former Springboro IGA Plaza is to begin on Oct. 15, Pozzuto said.

Construction on the arts center, to anchor a commercial redevelopment on the northwest corner of the city’s central crossroads, Ohio 73 and Ohio 741, Central Avenue and Main Street in Springboro, is to kick off sometime in November, Pozzuto said.
