Washington, Total Soccer
agree to lot split acreage

by KIMBERLY SCHERER
Observer Special Writer
      Washington Township and Total Soccer will soon sign the agreement regarding the lot split of the 200-acre parcel purchased for a joint venture.
       During the Board of Trustees meeting March 5, Supervisor Dan O'Leary said 80 acres belong to Total Soccer to use for its purposes. He said that portion will be situated down the center of the parcel from Powell Road, west of the drain and north of the internal road that will run from 30 Mile Road to Powell.
       The township will retain about 30 acres on the northeast side, another 50 acres on the 30 Mile Road side and then another 30 acres to the west of the parcel.
       O'Leary isn't entirely sure just yet where the proposed community center will be built. It could be located on the western side, or on the northeastern side. What's for sure is that it won't be located off 30 Mile.
       "The only thing for sure, we don't want to be on 30 Mile side, that's such a nice parcel, it lends itself to finding a good buyer," he said.
       Parking for Total Soccer's facility will be along the north side of the building with unpaved overflow parking on the Powell side. The internal road will be a 50/50 cost split between the township and Total Soccer. O'Leary said the township's half will first be a limestone road and will be paved later in case the road's location has to be adjusted.
       Water will be brought to the site, most likely down Powell, but not sewer just yet.
       "This is truly a public-private partnership," O'Leary said of their agreement, "We worked together to make it happen."
