City council will vote Thursday to relocate the school house from its location on Young Road to Silver Springs.
They did it. Members of the Stow Historical Society had until Dec. 1 to raise enough money to relocate the Stewart Corners School, which is the city's last one-room school house. Today, they have nearly $40,000 in the bank, according to historical society member Robert Flower. The early 1880s schoolhouse is currently located at 5090 Young Road, where it has served as Green Valley United Baptist Church for about the past 45 years. Church trustees sold the property in January 2012 to Metro Parks, Serving Summit County for use as a parking lot for its adjacent hike and bike trail. The parks system was willing to donate the building — but only if it’s moved by Dec. 1. The building has yet to be moved, but there are plans in the works. …

Take a look at five things to know before tonight's council meeting.
The Stow City Council meeting scheduled for Feb. 23 begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall. Here are five things to take note of before the meeting: 1. Residential Rezoning: Stow resident Paul Zuravel is requesting that a section of eight plots at Graham Road and Leewood Road be rezoned from R-1 to R-2. About half a dozen residents attended the Feb. 21 meeting opposing Zuravel's request. Most residents cited more traffic, property values and smaller property lot sizes to why they were against rezoning. Zuravel said he wants to rezone the lot so he has more options for the property. Stow Patch will have more on this story, continue to check for updates. The difference between R-1 and R-2: 2. Fox Den Lease Agreement: Council will review leasing …
