Definition of Geographic Area
The Wolf Creek Neighborhood of Copley is located in the southwest quadrant of the Township. The area is partially bound by residential neighborhoods to the east, Medina Line Road to the west, the City of Akron to the south and the Wheeling and Lake Erie railway line to the north.
The neighborhood is bordered by Sharon Township, Medina County to the west.
Large residential lots, rural landscape and scenic views of the Barberton Reservoir characterize this neighborhood.
Current Land Use and Zoning
The land is zoned residential encompassing both low and medium density use.
The Residential-Low District (R-LD) is established to provide for lower density residential development that will: (1) protect natural resources and maintain the environment and quality of life in the Township; (2) discourage concentrated living areas in the drainage area of the Barberton Reservoir where such concentrations could create potential pollution of the reservoir and (3) discourage concentrated living areas in other areas where the irregularity of the land and the higher cost of providing central sewer facilities makes higher density development undesirable.
The Residential-Medium Density (R-MD) District is established to accommodate single-family & two-family residential dwellings at existing densities in the areas so defined. The object of the regulations in this District is to maintain the suburban character of the area and to discourage large concentrations of intensive development.
Neighborhood Ambassadors are essential to the success of any strong community.
Neighborhood Ambassadors serve as a local point-person for information in your part of the Township. Ambassadors are charged with promoting improvements, identifying problems, and informing neighbors about beneficial services and programs.
Ambassadors may volunteer just a little bit of free time, or choose to devote significant efforts toward neighborhood projects that connect neighbors. Organize a block party or help build community by chatting over the fence.
Neighborhood Ambassadors receive ongoing support and guidance from the Township Administration and the Department of Community and Economic Development.
By building a team of neighborhood-level leaders, the cumulative impact of this positive force will expand. Ultimately, the neighbors who volunteer as Ambassadors lay the groundwork for lasting excellence and long-term community pride.
