There is a 241-home subdivision on 106 acres coming to Perrysburg.
The first plat of the Hawthorne development, which will be south of Coe Court and north of Roachton Road and west of the railroad tracks, has been approved by the city planning commission.
The first plat has 30 lots, but the city must approve the final plat before zoning permits can be issued to get building permits. Brody Walters, Perrysburg planning and zoning chief, said he expects construction to start in the next month. The plan calls for three cul-de-sacs and a storm water-detention area.
At a planning commission meeting in July, developer Mark Rich said the houses probably would be in the $240,000 to $300,000 range. He said the plan was to build about 25 houses a year, which would make it a 10-year project.
The initial lots are being built off Roachton Road. Woods Edge Road and Dwyer Drive each will be extended from adjacent subdivisions.
The subdivision will be built by Saba Custom Homes in Toledo, the builder that developed the Brookhaven subdivision on the south side of Five Point Road just west of Fort Meigs Road. Saba also developed the Eckel Trace and Sanctuary Meadows subdivisions in Perrysburg, the Maple Creek subdivision in Sylvania, and Crimson Hollow in Waterville.
