Other legislation expected to be voted on include the following:
- Ordinance 437-18 which would authorize $2,109,450 from the capital improvement program fund for the purchase of fire engines and ladder trucks to replace an aging fleet for the Toledo Fire and Rescue Department.
- Resolution 439-18 which would submit to the Toledo Plan Commission Councilman Tyrone Riley’s proposal to change the zoning from limited industrial to neighborhood commercial at the former Driggs Dairy site at 1157 Grand Avenue and 1928 North Detroit Avenue.
Council will likely vote on two items approved recently by its Zoning & Planning Committee. Ordinance 453-18 would approve AMA Superior, LLC’s request for a zoning change to facilitate redevelopment of a warehouse at 125 and 132 Wabash Street and 120 Nebraska Avenue for mixed commercial office and residential use. Ordinance 457-18 would approve Tarpon Towers’ request for a special use permit for the addition of a freestanding wireless telecommunications facility at 5311 Hill Avenue.
Council will likely hold action on Ordinance 417-18 until November 7. The ordinance would approve amending a joint economic development district agreement with Troy Township, Wood County in order to add 512 acres of undeveloped land into the district at the request of the East Ohio Gas Company. A hearing before the Regional Growth, Development & Small Business Enterprise Committee is scheduled for November 5 at 2:00 p.m.
All Council meetings are held in Council Chambers on the first floor of One Government Center, located on Jackson Boulevard in downtown Toledo.
