Craig Wood has spent most of his 60 years on 191st Street in Westfield, living and working on his family farm. For most of that time, the adjacent land has been other houses and farm fields, but that all changed on Nov. 18, 2011, when construction on Grand Park Sports Campus began.
Drexler Woods would include 490 single-family homes spread across 185 acres, as well as attached residential units and land for business use. Westfield officials will take a closer look at the project on Monday.
