Patch wants your opinion: What would you like to see done with the 82-acre property that was Corbett Farm?
If you could put anything at Corbett Farm, what would it be? This week Michael Turle approached city leaders presenting his idea to turn the 82 acres into a city park.

At a price of $4.5 million, it would come out to $55,000 an acre before taxes, a steep price for the city. Turle also suggested finding corporate sponsors or even grant money to purchase the land, saying he'd be happy to just see empty space and mowed twice a year. Twinsburg Patch wants your opinion. What would you like to see…
