Background on the Beech Brook Property Sale and Rezoning
For the past two years, Beech Brook has been under contract with the Axiom Group to purchase our land for a mixed-use development. Because our property is zoned for institutional uses, such a development requires a zoning change that must be approved by the voters of Pepper Pike. On September 25, however, just a few weeks before the election, the Axiom Group terminated its contract with Beech Brook.
Naturally, we are disappointed in this outcome in terms of Beech Brook’s plans and our ability to put the proceeds from the land sale to work on behalf of the children and families we serve. The vital services we provide are more critical than ever in light of the pandemic and its impact on those vulnerable families.
Although this sale will not take place, we will continue to look for ways to move forward.
Our Land Use Committee and Board of Directors will begin to look at other options for this property…either a sale to a different buyer or another revenue-producing use which fits within our current zoning.
As the stewards of Beech Brook’s long legacy in our community, it is our responsibility to do what is best for the long-term viability of our organization and our ability to deliver on Beech Brook's mission. We have survived since 1852 by continually evolving to meet the needs of children and families, and we will continue to do everything we can to make sure that Beech Brook survives and thrives for generations to come.
I will keep you updated whenever there are new developments to share.
