- Ordinance 485-18 which would approve $19,000 for appraisals on the five TARTA-owned transit stations in downtown Toledo. The appraisals are required by the Federal Transit Administration to facilitate release of TARTA’s interests in the stations and downtown bus loop in order to allow redevelopment of the former Madison Building and other sites.
- Ordinance 491-18 which would approve a request for a zone change from limited industrial to downtown commercial at 443-447 10th Street to allow use of the building as office and retail space.
- Ordinance 493-18 which would approve Monroe-Huron LLC’s request for a special use permit for a cigar shop and lounge at 607 Monroe Street, sharing the two-building parcel with The Blarney Irish Pub.
Two ordinances will likely be referred to Council’s Streets, Public Services, and Utilities Committee:
- Ordinance 477-18 which would authorize a five-year lease to Crestline Paving for 8.78 acres at the former Champion Spark Plug site. The ordinance would allow an option for Crestline Paving to renew the lease for an additional five years.
- Ordinance 487-18 which would approve $48,000 for a contract with Palmer Energy for the development of an initial phase of an implementation plan for the conversion of street lights to LED technology. It would also fund a cost/benefit analysis of investing in lighting upgrades.
Ordinance 476-18, which would approve a new fee schedule for permits and associated services under the Division of Building Inspection, will likely be held for action until December 4. Contractor and construction trade registration and renewal fees remain unchanged under the proposal. Building permit fees were last changed in 2015.
Ordinance 486-18, which would appropriate $856,324 from the Capital Improvement Program fund for the District Improvement Program, will likely be given first reading. The funds were appropriated previously for other projects which have been or are already completed. The funds will be available for improvement projects in the council districts where the previously funded projects occurred.
All Council meetings are held in Council Chambers on the first floor of One Government Center, located on Jackson Boulevard in downtown Toledo.
