Grafton’s Village Board is expected to approve the first phase plat of the Stonewall Farms development this month following a recommendation from the Plan Commission.

The development, proposed by Robert Tillman, will be located north of Highway 60 between Keup Road and First Avenue on about 178 acres of farm field. Several farmstead buildings on the property will be removed.  

Construction of the development is planned to be completed in three phases that will create 350 new housing units in single and shared homes.

The first phase of the project, recommended for approval by the Plan Commission on Feb. 22, will create 41 single-family lots and two stormwater management ponds. Lot sizes in the first phase vary in size from about 11,500 to 19,000 square feet.

The Village Board will consider action on the first phase of the project in March.

Conversations regarding the development began again in July 2021 after being tabled in April 2018 after neighbors of the proposed development expressed concerns that the new subdivision would cause too much traffic in the area.

The village contracted Traffic Analysis and Design Inc. to conduct a traffic impact analysis of the area, which made recommendations as to how traffic could be improved following construction of the subdivision, but ultimately found existing infrastructure would accommodate the increase in traffic.

Despite the study, some residents of the adjacent Cedarton Estates and Lone Oaks neighborhoods maintained concerns that the new subdivision would pose a nuisance to existing residents.

The Grafton Plan Commission approved a land annexation, rezone and preliminary plat agreement for the development on Sept. 28, and plans for the project have continued to move forward since then.

Pending Village Board approval of the project’s first phase, construction of the subdivision could begin this spring.
