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.


The Village of St.EdwardVillage of St. Edward

D. DeHoff, Green Land Trust, Ltd.
Location: 3813 Fortuna Drive
Request for Site Plan Review/Conditional Use Certificate
Zoning: B-2

Project Description:
Applicant is presenting a site plan for The Village of St. Edward, a proposed senior-living facility in Phase I of the Spring Hill Business Park, a commercial allotment that is also scheduled for preliminary plan review at tonight’s meeting. The proposed facility would offer Independent/Assisted Living accommodations and Memory Care services.  St. Edward currently operates a similar facility in Fairlawn.

Current code permits Assisted Living/Memory Care as a conditional use in the B-2 District but prohibits Independent Living. Based upon information provided by St. Edward regarding the scope of services provided to independent living residents, we have determined that the entire facility would meet the definition of an Assisted Living use.  A public hearing and issuance of a Conditional Use Certificate by the PZC is required for this project, therefore.  The hearing has been advertised in the Suburbanite and contiguous property owners have been notified.  

The proposal involves the creation of a 12.2-acre parcel that would be situated directly south of the City’s Spring Hill Sports Complex. Frontage for the parcel would be created via the southward extension of Fortuna Drive. (Note: Technically, the site currently is part of a 104-acre tract of land that has sufficient frontage on S. Arlington Rd.  The proposed Business Park would utilize the 85-acre portion of the tract that is zoned B-2 and is situated directly north of the Spring Hill residential allotment.) It involves the approximately 600’ long extension of Fortuna Drive and eastward extension of Southwood Drive from S. Arlington Road.  Creation of proposed parcels and dedication of roadway would occur via the platting process.

The site is currently vacant and primarily wooded.  It has a high point in the northeast corner that falls approximately 40’ toward the west. It also contains a wetland area, a small channel, and a temporary stormwater management basin (for Sports Complex/Fortuna Dr. drainage). The wetland would be disturbed to accommodate the project. The required approvals/permits from the Army Corps of Engineers are in process.

The facility would be developed to accommodate 50 Independent Living units, 48 Assisted Living units, and 28 Memory Care units for a total of 126 units. The proposed density of 10.33 units per acre would comply (18 units/acre maximum). The Independent Living would occupy the northern wing, Assisted Living would be the southwest portion of the building, and Memory Care would be in the eastern wing.

J. Mockbee, CAM, Inc.Chipotle Reference
Location: 1840 Franks Pkwy
Request for Final Site Plan Review
Zoning: PD

Project Description:
Applicant is presenting a plan for an overall 67’ x 34’ (2,316 SF) facility for Chipotle at 1840 Franks Pkwy., which is situated within the Heritage Crossings of Green Planned Development. The proposed use, which also includes a drive-through facility, is permitted in the PD District.  The plans are also consistent with the approved conceptual plan, which was originally approved in 2010.  The applicant is also the developer of the District.


The proposed site is part of the existing 1.95 acre Lot 1-R, which is located on the south side of Franks Pkwy. and adjacent to the existing pump station. This lot would be split (via report) to create the one-acre site, which would occupy the western half of the existing parcel.  It is currently vacant and bounded by an existing stream corridor (and Riparian setback) to the south and an internal access drive for the existing commercial portion of the District (Acme, etc.) to the west.  The applicant will continue to own the property upon development and would lease the building to Chipotle.  The proposed report is also under review at tonight’s meeting.

New Seasons Planned DevelopmentNew Seasons
M. Schmahl, Great Development, LLC
Location: Southeast corner of Massillon/Wise Roads
Request for Final Rezoning

Project Description:
approximately 20.5 acres of land at the southeast corner of Massillon and Wise Roads. The plan proposes a residential cluster home development consisting of 74 fee-simple lots. The rezoning request associated with this conceptual plan is for 20.5 acres from R-1/B-1/B-3 to PD, Planned Development.  The site would exceed the five (5) acre minimum for the creation of this type of Planned Development.   


The site consists of six (6) parcels of land with four (4) separate owners.  These parcels are currently under option to Great Development LLC, developer of the project.  The site includes an 8.7 acre property fronting on Wise Road that contains a vacant single-family residence (zoned R-1), a 6.75 acre single-family residential property abutting to the south that fronts on Massillon Road (zoned R-1/B-1), a contiguous 3.6 acre Massillon Road property to the south that is split-zoned between B-3 (front half) and R-1 (rear), and the three parcels that comprise the former Green Farms market/greenhouse operation on Massillon Road (zoned B-1).  The site is bounded by the Greensburg Heights Allotment to the east, Pancho’s Southwestern Grille to the north, and additional single-family residential along Wise Road and to the south along Massillon Road.  Other than a small drainage ditch, there are no significant bodies of water or waterways on site. Per preliminary mapping, four small wetlands are indicated. All are in areas that would cause their disturbance/mitigation, which will require the appropriate approvals/permits.   


The developer has obtained a franchise for an Epcon Community, which are maintenance-free/lifestyle-oriented communities.  The Epcon operation was founded in Dublin, Ohio and has expanded in the Columbus area and beyond over the years.  A signature element of these communities is zero-lot-line dwellings that form private courtyard areas between units (see attached diagrams).  Fee-simple lots, as shown, would range from 6,466 SF to 19,818 SF, which exceeds the 5,000 SF minimum lot area requirement. All lots would meet the 40’ minimum width requirement.  Overall density within the District would comply at 3.61units per acre (8 units/acre maximum).

TWL DevelopmentTWL Development Pic

S. Wallenhorst, GPD Group
Location: Southwest corner of Massillon/Graybill Roads
Site Plan Review

Applicant is proposing a retail/restaurant development on a 7.84-acre site located at the southwest corner of Massillon and Graybill Roads. The proposed land use is conditionally permitted in the B-2 District and a public hearing and issuance of a Conditional Use Certificate will be required by the PZC.

The site consists of a 7-acre tract and two smaller parcels that are currently owned by Summa Health System and are under option by the developer. A lot consolidation will be required. The property abuts the Summa property to the north and Stonebridge Apartment complex to the south. To the west lies the single-family residences along April Drive in the Green Highlands Allotment. It has frontage on the west end of the Graybill Road cul-de-sac and along Massillon Road, south of the facility that houses Ritzman Pharmacy. A Subsurface Investigation has been completed by Timmerman Geotechnical Group and has been submitted for review. Generally speaking, the report indicated that the site is suitable to support pavement and the buildings associated with the proposed development. It also reported that there would likely be isolated areas with unsuitable soils due to old basements, foundations, and abandoned septic systems from the previous residential uses in this area.

The project consists of a 24,480 SF main anchor building (likely a specialty grocer) with an attached 8,400 SF multi-tenant building in the southwestern portion of the site. In the front (eastern) portion of the site, a 2,100 SF fast-food restaurant with drive-thru along with a separate building containing a 4,040 SF quick-serve restaurant (QSR) and 4,080 SF retail space with drive-thru are proposed. This would total 36,960 SF of retail space and 6,140 SF of restaurant use. These numbers could change if a restaurant occupies part of the multi-tenant space (i.e. a restaurant with outdoor patio is possible here). The drive-thru facilities are also conditionally permitted in the B-2 District.

The anchor building would be set back 100’ from the rear (west) property line, which abuts the residential allotment, and 66’ from the south property line, abutting the apartments. The fast-food restaurant would have 89’ front yard and 76’ side yard setbacks and the QSR/retail building would be set back 99’ in front and 50’ from the side (north) property line (Ritzman site). All setbacks would comply as presented (minimum 50’ front yard and 25’ or height of the building for side/rear yards). The consolidated lot would meet requirements for lot area, width, and frontage. Building coverage at 13% and impervious surface ratio of 61% would also comply (33%/75% maximums).
