The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) announced last week that all mail sorting for northwest Ohio will be moved from its processing facility in Pontiac, Michigan to its processing facility in Cleveland, Ohio beginning September 16 and ending November 14. While this is a temporary decision to support prompt delivery of absentee ballots and request forms for the November election, the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce hopes it results in timely delivery of all mail and consideration for ultimately re-establishing processing services in Toledo.

At its regular meeting at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 11, Toledo City Council is expected to give first reading to four ordinances that would approve vacating certain right-of-way to facilitate the Colony development planned by ProMedica and Continental Real Estate Co. The overall project will include two apartment buildings, a hotel, and a mixed-use structure near ProMedica Toledo Hospital. Ordinance 312-20 would approve vacating a strip along Central Avenue, Ordinance 313-20 would approve vacating portions of Brian Cliff Road, Ordinance 314-20 would approve vacating a portion of Kelly Avenue, and Ordinance 315-20 would approve vacating portions of Rathburn Drive. The requests have been recommended for approval by the Toledo Plan Commission and the Lucas County Board of Revision.
The Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce is a proud longtime supporter of the Marathon LPGA Classic presented by Dana. Though we will miss Hole 14 Chamber Canteen and meeting with our members in person this year, we look forward to tuning in and continuing our successful partnership.
Through Aug. 9, Ladies Professional Golf Association pros will converge upon northwest Ohio to compete in the 2020 Marathon LPGA Classic presented by Dana at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania. Though this tournament will look different than any before, as there are no spectators allowed during the pandemic, you can still enjoy the tournament by tuning in to The Golf Channel. What’s not different this year, however, is the support the Marathon Classic brings to northwest Ohio charitable organizations.
As we enter the dog days of summer and celebrate the start of August, we have to look back on July and celebrate all the exciting work we and our members did in the last month.

But now, let's celebrate our newest Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce members who joined in July 2020.
