Current Development Projects

The City of Green's Planning Department reviews site plans, zoning request changes and subdivisions within the city. Below is more information about current and recent projects as they progress through the planning process.

 

 

Bentley Reserve

Bentley Reserve Elev.P. Rakoci, Redwood Living Inc.
Location: West side of S. Arlington Rd., north of Boettler Rd.
Site Plan Review

Project Description:

Applicant is proposing a 52-unit apartment community on the west side of S. Arlington Road., north of Boettler Road.  The site contains a total of 11.78 acres of land, which is currently comprised of three (3) separate parcels (two different owners). A lot consolidation is required prior to final approval.

The applicant previously developed the Emerald Ridge Luxury Apartment project, which consists of 101 units on the 15.26 acre site directly north of the current proposal. The success of that project initiated the applicant’s desire to provide additional units, as a waiting list of potential renters was compiled due to demand. The Bentley Reserve project would be a separate community and the two properties would remain separate.

In an effort to meet the demand for units, the current site was the subject of a rezoning request at the June 20, 2012 PZC meeting. This request, which involved the rezoning of the land from R-1, Single-Family Residential to R-2, Multi-Family Residential, received an unfavorable recommendation to City Council. The request was subsequently denied by Council. Litigation followed and the land was eventually rezoned to R-2. The applicant now wishes to proceed with site plan review for the development of the apartment project.

Central Park

Central Park PlanOHM Advisors
Location: 1102/1184 Boettler Road
Site Plan Review

Project Description:

The City of Green is presenting plans for Central Park, a proposed public park to be developed on City property adjacent to the Central Administration Building (CAB). The plans being presented were developed by OHM Advisors, a planning firm that has been hired by the City. The proposed use is permitted in the B-2 /PD zoning districts and the existing zoning will therefore remain unchanged.

The 8.11 acre site is located on the north side of Steese Road and extends northward behind the Retirement Residence to the CAB site. It is directly east of the Green Intermediate School/Middle School site. The site meets all zoning requirements.

The park will provide a mix of passive and active recreational activities in an area that is centrally located within the City. The main components of the park include a meandering network of asphalt walkways, to include boardwalks and pond overlooks, a sensory garden, an outdoor amphitheater, a farmer’s market area, and a pavilion building. Concessions, restroom facilities, and a support/maintenance building are also included. The park would also integrate the existing pond and retention pond on the CAB site and a new water quality pond to be created. An easement will be required for a portion of the park (sensory garden and walkway) that would lie on the Town Park Professional Center property on the east side.

The Boulevard/Greensburgh Manor

C. Williams, Green Project Dev., LLC; J. McCabe, The Woda Group, Inc.; P.B. Wrightsel, Vision Development, Inc.Greensburgh Manor Elev
Location: 3995 - 4015 Massillon Road/1970 Burgess Drive/2020 Graybill Road
General Development Plan Amendment
Zoning: PD

Project Description:

Applicants are presenting a request to amend the approved general development plan for the existing Planned Development District currently known as “The Grove/The Grove Villas of Green”. The 23.42 acre district is located on the east side of Massillon Road, south of Graybill Road. This is not a request for rezoning.

The original general development plan for the district was reviewed by the Planning & Zoning Commission at the February 16, 2011 meeting and consisted of a mixed-use development of retail/office/restaurant space and townhomes. That project did not proceed and an amended general plan was presented at the January 15, 2014 PZC meeting when the original developer, Green Project Development, LLC joined forces with Foremost Development Co. That plan replaced the townhomes with a total of six (6) three-story apartment buildings with a total of 180 units (The Grove Villas of Green) and was subsequently approved by City Council. An amendment to this plan is now presented for review. A copy of the previously approved plan is attached for reference.

The general development plan under consideration at this time includes the same components of the current plan and adds a new component, a 50-unit senior apartment building to be known as the Greensburgh Manor and developed by The Woda Group, Inc.  Units would be one-bedroom and rent is based on the Average Median Income (AMI) for the area, which is updated annually.   Woda applied for State of Ohio tax credits for this project and an award was recently granted, permitting it to proceed. Regulations related to the tax credit require construction to be completed within two (2) years. It is understood that the developer desires to begin construction in the Spring of 2015, pending receipt of all required approvals and permits. The proposed use is permitted in the PD District. 

The Manor would be situated within the current 11.5 acre western (commercial) half of the district (The Grove).   Here, a new three (3) acre parcel would be created in the open space area between a proposed north-south public roadway and the eastern edge of The Grove.  The Grove Villas of Green, on the eastern half of the district, would remain unchanged. Overall, the district would consist of 8.74 acres of commercial use, 3 acres of senior apartments, and 12.04 acres of apartments. The new three acre parcel would also have frontage on a new east-west public roadway that would serve as access to the site from Massillon Road. 

The plan indicates the general footprint of buildings, parking areas, open spaces and amenities, and roadways. A conceptual rendering is also provided for the Manor, which is shown as a V-shaped, three-story building with a central entryway and drop-off canopy. Building setbacks would be appropriately 40’ to the right-of-way line of the north-south roadway, 15’ to the rear property line, and 45’ to the side property line. It would also be set back approximately 190’ from the east-west roadway.   Due to the configuration of the building, setbacks are to the “corners” of the structure and setback dimensions would increase along the adjacent walls.   Per code, front yard setbacks to non-arterial streets and side/rear yard setbacks are established as part of this review process. Density of approximately 17 units per acre would comply (20 units/acre maximum for senior restricted apartments).

The Grove would also be modified as a result of the addition of the Manor project. This includes the footprint reduction  of the proposed three-story Building #3 from 42,000 SF to 30,000 SF and the elimination of future Building #4, which was previously planned as a three-story 28,000 SF building east of Building #3.

Circle K
J. Iski, Circle K Great Lakes DivisionCircle K Building Elev
Location: 3510/3526 S. Arlington Rd.  
Request: Site Plan Review

Project Description:

Applicant is proposing a new fuel station with an 85’ x49’ (4,000 SF) convenience store for Circle K at the northwest corner of E. Turkeyfoot Lake and S. Arlington Roads. The proposed land uses are permitted in the B-1 District.

The 2.34 acre site is currently comprised of four (4) separate parcels of land and a portion of Warner Alley, which is a 16.5’ wide public right-of-way that runs north-south through the site.   An alley vacation plat has been submitted for PZC review and recommendation to City Council as part of this project and will also be reviewed at this meeting. A lot consolidation plat has also been submitted for review. This consolidation will be required to create the site and would be recorded in conjunction with the alley vacation. The site also contains the following structures; one vacant commercial building, two residences (one with detached garage), and the “Square” building, which is a former one-room schoolhouse (former East Liberty School).  This structure is not designated as a local or national historic landmark and will be demolished (unless it is able to be relocated for preservation/future use by an interested party). The City is also evaluating the costs involved to relocate the structure for possible use within one of its parks. (The City currently maintains the renovated Lichtenwalter Schoolhouse within Boettler Park.) All other structures will be removed (demolition permit required).

J. Warmus, Warmus Builders, Inc.
Location: 1102/1184 Boettler Road
Request for Rezoning: 80.6 acres from R-1 to PD

Project Description:
Applicant is presenting a general development plan for the development of the overall 80.6 acre site at 1102 and 1184 Boettler Road, which was formerly known as Kiefl Farm. The site consists of two separate parcels; the 79.6 acre farm tract that also includes a single-family residence and a one acre parcel that also contains a single-family residence. The two properties will be consolidated in conjunction with the final development plan review. The rezoning request is for 80.6 acres of land from R-1, Single-Family Residential to PD, Planned Development.

The general development plan under consideration features a development mix that is geared toward “senior living” that would include cluster housing, senior apartments, Independent/Assisted living, and a Memory Care Center, which would encompass approximately 74 acres of the site. The plan also includes approximately 6 acres for professional office buildings. There are no retail uses proposed within the District. The plan indicates general building footprints, the roadway configuration, and location of open space/stormwater management facilities. The District would be served by central sewer and water services, which are available on Boettler Road.
