Trails At Redwood Falls

Trails at Redwood Falls, a 98-lot subdivision located on one of Medina County’s oldest golf courses, was subject to scrutiny by the Hinckley Township Zoning Commission. Davey Resource Group was up to the challenge and carefully considered the commission’s concerns while working on the project.

Project Narrative:

Trails at Redwood Falls is a 98-lot subdivision located on roughly 200 acres of property and occupies the previous location of one of Medina County’s oldest golf courses. The project’s evolution from initial concept to final plan was extensive and involved numerous reiterations with our client and Hinckley Township’s Zoning Commission. The initial concept included significant input from golf course architect, Brian Huntley. The street and lot layout included the reservation and improvement of nine golf holes, the addition of a driving range/practice facility, and the reservation of the original golf course clubhouse. Davey Resource Group (DRG) took a thoughtful approach to the design and construction of this subdivision, creating roadways that  followed existing tree lines, placing conservation easements on 100 acres of the property, and proposing and installing a low- pressure grinder pump (LPGP) sanitary collection system.

The benefits of the LPGP system are three-fold. This system reduces the amount of sanitary effluent released into the groundwater (compared to traditional on-lot septic systems) and uses a smaller footprint of area for installation, reducing the amount of disturbed land, and allowing for a project-specific environmental benefit. The LPGP sanitary collection system allowed DRG to preserve 100 acres of property in a conservation easement, ensuring no interruption to the protected wetland areas.

Furthering Sustainability Efforts Through Reforestation

The 100 acres of property within the conservation easement include the original golf course, several acres of existing wooded area, and wetland and riparian areas. With the assistance of the conservation easement steward, Stream & Wetland Preservation Group (SWPG), DRG was able to raise the funds to reforest one acre of golf course within the conservation easement. SWPG and DRG are in the process of researching grant opportunities to reforest an additional 8-10 acres within the property in hopes of extending preservation to the areas of the golf course that were previously deforested for course layout.
