TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Toledo City Council got its first official look at a
proposal aimed at removing a major eyesore in south Toledo: the former Clarion Hotel on Reynolds Road.
Mayor D. Michael Collins says the proposal calls for the
Lucas County Land Bank to acquire the site, which is on the forfeited property
list, and then transfer the property to the city. The mayor says tearing down
the former hotel is needed to help redevelop the former K-Mart location, which
is being targeted by a retail furniture operation.

"If one domino tipped over, cleaning up a building will
start some economic development in the city, then I'm generally for it," the
councilman said. "I want to look to see what the liabilities are for us
taxpayers. If we can pull in some money from federal, state grants, then that's
a better way to work this deal."
The measure requires approval by city council. A vote
could happen as early as next week.
