Title
Amending Toledo Municipal Code, Part Eleven, Subsection 1104.0600 Convenience Stores and Subsection 1116.0217 Food and Beverage Retail Sales; and declaring an emergency.

Summary
SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
This application was deferred from the September 12, 2019 Plan Commission hearing in order to provide an additional opportunity for public input.

This text amendment is to modify the definition of Convenience Stores and Large Stores under Food and Beverage Retail Sales in the Use Categories of Sec. 1116.0200.
