A residential housing development at Corbett's Farm appears to be moving forward again after it was ensnarled in lawsuits for years.
The Twinsburg Planning Commission approved this week a site plan that would allow development at the Corbett's Farm site at the corner of Darrow Road and Glenwood Boulevard.
The Twinsburg Bulletin reports that under the site plan, the developers would be able to build as many as 96 homes on the 82-acre site.
The vote appears to be part of a deal to get past the lawsuit, which was filed by developer MSRK, LLC in 2007. Court records show that the developer was seeking to build as many as 200 homes, but city officials refused those zoning requests. The lawsuit followed. It is now pending in appeals court and is still unresolved.
As part of the deal to get the project moving, city officials plan to grant certain variances, the Bulletin reports.
A historic barn and farmhouse on the Corbett property was torn down last fall.
