Corbett's Farm Residential Development Making Progress

The Twinsburg Planning Commission approved the preliminary site plan for a housing development at Corbett's Farm.

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.

How very sad!! Another subdivision with no character and lots of similar homes. Glad the city stood it's ground and reduced the number of building lots the developer tried to rezone!!

How will all of these new students fit into the schools (i.e. Dodge) - which is already crowded? Too bad that land can't just be made into a park. Do we really need more houses in Twinsburg?!?

Maybe a 55 and over community would be more appropriate.

Can you imagine the traffic with a round-a-bout at the corner. Most have no idea how to drive one. Our city government really messed up on that. so,96 houses times at least 2 cars, just what the intersection needs. Why not pave over all the green space in town and raise the temperature even more.

Schools? ha ! they know Twinsburg voters will jump at the chance of passing school levies! Without question they get passed. The developer comes in,builds houses,makes his money and leaves. We pay and pay and pay. "it for the children" :-). ha

Twinsburg/Reminderville are only thinking short term. It's too bad. They are building 'flight homes" which only are bringing bad Cleveland neighboorhood residents to a new place. Enjoy the good times Twinsburg.

The local government doesnt care, they just want the tax dollars.

I'm moving to Aurora Paul. You don't see them bulldozing the open space to build future ghettos, do you? Twinsburg = FAIL

If the "bad Cleveland neighborhood residents" can afford $300k homes then I do don't think it is all that bad. You really shouldn't stereotype like that. While I am not for the development of the land, the developer does have rights, and I am happy to see that they have agreed to the current zoning and density with under 100 homes going in. These will most likely be Ryan Homes, as they are part of the same developer(s) that built Twinsburg to what it is today.

I agree w/ Annie....if someone wants to get out of the rough, city neighborhood and move to a suburb where their children would be safe and get a good education, then good for them!
