FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Some empty buildings in
downtown Findlay could soon see new life.
Four buildings were
scheduled to be demolished, but the Hancock County Commissioners voted to put
them up for auction instead.
"We're putting them out
for a minimum $340,000 to see if we can get that price point met, and then
maybe get some continued investment in the Findlay-Hancock County area," said
Commissioner Brian Robertson.
A development group
recently contacted commissioners with potential plans for the buildings, which
sparked the commissioners' interest.
Some residents said they
don't like having the empty buildings, but would like to see them have another
"If the city can sell them
and earn the money, then they should do that," said resident Tobin Prowant. "I just
don't think we should hold on to things that don't help the city."
The auction is scheduled
for May 9. If the buildings – three on South Main and one on Dorney Plaza – don't
sell, commissioners say they will be torn down.
