Miami Twp. has approved of a plan for Springboro to annex land for the $380 million Austin South project.
Austin South is a continuation of the development of the Austin Boulevard/Ohio 741 intersection, south of Austin Landing.
The proposal passed by trustees Tuesday night calls for 7.7 acres to be annexed and tax-income sharing between the township and Springboro, records show.
The majority of the land on the northwest corner of Austin and Ohio 741 is developed with Austin Landing’s mix of office, retail and housing.
Upscale senior and multi-family housing, a hotel and retail are among the uses anticipated in the first phase of the 67-acre development on the southeast corner of Interstate 75 and Austin Boulevard, in Springboro and Miami Twp.
VisCap Development President Larry Dillin is managing and leasing on both sides of Austin Boulevard land since taking over for developer Randy Gunlock and RG Properties. Springboro Landing Associates is the owner of land on the southwest corner of Austin Boulevard and Ohio 741 where the development is to take shape.

— The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has expanded its warning to include all types of romaine lettuce. The warning now includes whole heads and hearts of romaine lettuce, in addition to chopped romaine and salads and salad mixes containing romaine.
The CDC also asks consumers to “not buy or eat romaine lettuce at a grocery store or restaurant unless you can confirm it is not from the Yuma, Arizona, growing region.”
Additionally, the CDC suggests that consumers throw away any romaine lettuce in the home, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick.
At least 31 people have been hospitalized, including three who developed a type of kidney failure, according to the CDC.
No deaths related to the outbreak have been reported.
The CDC has not yet identified the grower or a common brand, and is urging people not to eat chopped lettuce from the Yuma area.
Symptoms of an E. coli infection vary, but often include severe stomach cramps and diarrhea, which is often bloody. Most people get better in five to seven days. Infections can be mild, but can also be severe and even life-threatening.
People started reporting illnesses that are part of the outbreak between March 22 and March 31.
DNA fingerprinting is being used to identify illnesses that are part of the same outbreak. Some people might not be included in the CDC’s case count if officials weren’t able to get bacteria strains needed for DNA fingerprinting to link them to the outbreak.
To reduce your risk of an E. coli infection, you can:

NEW YORK — A New York City postal worker was arrested Thursday after 17,000 pieces of undelivered mail were found in his car, apartment and locker, authorities said.
Aleksey Germash, who has worked for the U.S. Postal Service for more than 16 years, possessed undelivered mail since 2005, WPIX reported. He told investigators he held onto the mail because he was overwhelmed by how much mail he had to deliver. Germash said he delivered “the important stuff,” WPIX reported.
Postal officials said they found 10,000 pieces of undelivered mail in his car, 6,000 in his apartment and another 1,000 in his locker. An investigation began when USPS officials found 20 full bags in his car Wednesday, WPIX reported. He was arrested the following day.
Germash is not the first postal worker to hold onto mail. Agents arrested a Long Island letter carrier earlier this month after they found dozens of bags filled with undelivered mail behind his home.
Earlier this month, an Indiana mail carrier was charged with throwing away or holding onto thousands of pieces of mail. In February, a postal carrier in Florida
refused to deliver packages inside the gates of a nudist resort.
