Summary of lot issues behind development

NOTE: I am consolidating any information we posted about usage of the lots behind the neighborhood, so we don't lose the record:

UPDATE: 4.23.2009

At the HOA meeting on 4.21.2009 a resident inquired about the status of the lots. We called the township to get an update:
  • Right now nothing is planned and nothing is moving forward.
  • The land is currently owned by a quarry and has been for 50 years, if you have seen activity back there, that is why.
  • The quarry owners are thinking about selling as the land is almost tapped out.
  • The state requires a certain percentage of houses to be priced as "affordable housing" - Currently, Mantua is required to have 400, but it is being fought.
  • Mantua is required by the state to submit potential plans every 2-3 years or the state will develop and enforce one. The land behind the Lowes was suggested, that is all.
  • In regards to having a house in the neighborhood re-purposed to make an access road, I was told it was highly unlikely as a bridge would have to be created in the back.
Thats about it. Please feel free to ask more questions.
