A brand new design for the previous Tam O’Shanter golf course property designates extra space for Jackson Township parks.
Plans for redeveloping the previous Tam O’Shanter golf course are taking form, though builders aren’t revealing what retail operations is perhaps coming to the location.
The Stark County Regional Planning Fee on Tuesday reviewed a design plan for the event, which is being known as the Greens at Belden.
Tam O’Shanter closed in November after 80 years. The homeowners are promoting 62 acres alongside Fulton Drive NW towards the Everhard Highway NW intersection, land might be used for industrial improvement. One other 200-plus acres might be used as park area by Stark Parks and Jackson Township.
The up to date design units apart about 40 acres that might be used to create athletics fields for Jackson parks. The golf course homeowners are donating 20 acres and Jackson Township will purchase the extra acreage.
Many of the land the township is getting is towards the middle and japanese facet of the 36-hole course. It can function a buffer between the industrial space and the land Stark Parks will use.
Stark Parks is utilizing property that borders Hills and Dales Highway NW. The parks district has marked three non permanent trails on the previous golf course. Snow fence units the boundaries between Stark Parks, the land designated for Jackson Township and the industrial property.
ABC Growth, based mostly in Medina, is working with the property homeowners to search out tenants for the industrial space. Bob Acciarri, a companion and director of improvement for ABC, stated potential tenants might be introduced in early spring.
Plans are to divide the industrial part into seven heaps, with a brand new road splitting the property. A single lot overlaying about 21.7 acres might be on the east facet of the road, whereas six heaps — one 13.9 acres and one 14 acres — sit between the brand new road and the intersection of Everhard Highway and Fulton Drive NW.
The proposed road, at present named Belden Greens Circle NW, would prolong south from Fulton Drive NW towards the Jackson parks property. Plans are for the highway to finish on the park. The planning fee accredited variances permitting the proposed highway to finish, as an alternative of requiring extending it by way of Stark Parks property to Hills and Dales Highway NW.
Stark Parks is shopping for the majority of the Tam O’Shanter property, about 200 acres, utilizing grants totaling $6.64 million from the Clear Ohio Path Fund by way of the Pure Sources Advisory Committee. The county parks district has bought one tract on the west facet of the course. It’s leasing a second tract till the grant cash is formally accredited.

Stark Parks plans to have a sequence of conferences to get concepts and learn the way residents wish to see the property used. Officers hope a grasp plan for growing the land could be finalized through the summer season.
