Plans are to build 55 homes — in the first phases — on a large plot of land off of Snowville Road.
The first couple phases of Woodlands of Snowville housing development got the green light from the city’s planning commission. Developers want to see how the first project — with a total of 55 homes — goes before proposing any additional plans. The planning commission — as well as the US Army Corps of Engineers — approved Phase 1 (28 homes) and Phase 1A (27 homes). Construction could begin soon. “They’ve been trying to get this through for a while, but obviously they’ve had some bank issues,” said Mike Harwood, the city council representative to the planning commission.

The city’s planning commission is reviewing the proposal.
It looks as if the plans for the Woodlands of Snowville subdivision — that would include dozens of new homes — are back on the table. The developers resubmitted the proposal to the Brecksville Planning Commission on Thursday, according to the Sun News. According to the Sun News post, both the city council and the planning commission OK’d the plans for a new subdivision back in 2008, before withdrawing the plans in 2012. Financing seemed to be an issue, and the plans were temporarily put on hold.
