SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:

The city of Toledo is working with the Metropolitan Park District of the Toledo Area (Metroparks) on the development of the Riverfront Metropark in the vicinity of Front Street, Main Street, Marina Derive and Riverside Drive. The Riverfront Metropark restoration represents an important opportunity for significant investment in Toledo. To facilitate the success of the Riverfront Metropark, the City and Metroparks will need to cooperate and collaborate with respect to land, infrastructure and economic issues. The Development Agreement will address vacation petitions, property transfers, and costs.
