  1. Sandusky Transit rolling out new routes SANDUSKY — Forget about reversing course or staying in neutral on plans to improve Sandusky Transit. Sandusky officials are instead accelerating forward with a road map outlining significant changes to Erie County’s largest public transportation system. Starting Wednesday, transit workers will unveil an all-new fixed-route system snaking through the 44870 ZIP code area. FULL STORY: http://www.sanduskyregister.com/story/201807310019
  2. Once again, SpaceX lands at NASA Plum Brook PERKINS TWP. — The world’s leading private company in manufacturing and launching spacecraft needed a world-class public facility to test its latest cutting-edge product.

  3. Aside from some iffy weather, it seems the event was quite successful! I'm very proud of my hometown for hosting this event....wish I didn't live so far away. Hopefully I can get there next year! Here is the event's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Sandusky-Pride-1639641586092295/posts/?ref=page_internal
  4. Can owner re-invent Sandusky Mall? PERKINS TWP. — What’s to become of the Sandusky Mall, the city’s namesake premiere shopping center for the last 45 years? A lot of people are asking that question with news about the latest departure of a large retailer: Elder-Beerman, a clothing store, announced this week its closing all of its stores, including the one at Sandusky Mall. It’s been bad news after bad news for the mall. Last year the Macy’s store and Charming Charlie both closed and the year before, the iconic Sears left. FULL STORY: http://www.sanduskyregister.com/story/201804200010 ________________________________________________________ In the age of the dying mall, it amazes me that until 2016, the Sandusky Mall was doing relatively well. Now, 3 department store spaces will be empty. It'll be interesting to see what happens....
  5. Renaissance Too starting $1M project in downtown Sandusky SANDUSKY — Believing in Sandusky’s renaissance, they, too, want to make a sizable investment in the community. During a recent public meeting, city commissioners designated $115,000 in local grant funds so Sandusky-based company Renaissance Too can pursue a complete renovation project at 125 E. Water St. by Daly’s Pub.

  7. Incredible news.... College campus pushed forward in downtown Sandusky SANDUSKY — Two Ohio-based institutions partnered on a proposed multimillion-dollar project, representing, quite possibly, the most significant investment ever made in downtown Sandusky. Through an unprecedented public-private partnership, Cedar Fair and Bowling Green State University want to create a college paired with a campus-style environment somewhere within the city’s central business district. It’s possible the academic center, solely focused on teaching tourism-related courses, and a related residential setting, housing upward of 200 students year-round, could open by 2020.

Popular in Europe, Mike Graley envisions his multifaceted upscale venture as a one-stop shop for consumers to visit multiple times a day, with essentially each hour offering an ever-evolving edible experience. FULL STORY: http://www.sanduskyregister.com/story/201710310019 NOTE: It looks like this is the same "Vita Urbana" that didn't do so well in Cleveland. Hopefully it'll succeed in Sandusky....
  9. Very encouraging news from Sandusky, where 2017's ridership has topped 10,000 (first time that's happened this decade): https://www.narprail.org/site/assets/files/2454/sky.pdf
  10. Damn. All told, and as proposed, the project could take 15 years to complete. So I read that as it may take 25 years to complete. I'm starting to resent amazing looking projects that I may not live to see lol. I hear you! Hopefully this project can be achieved much sooner....it appears to have widespread support!

Game on: $28M indoor sports complex coming to Erie County SANDUSKY — Consider it a double-play combination where children from across the nation can compete on neighboring world-class facilities in Erie County.

    Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

    I flew a United flight on 4/8 from Denver to Cleveland. It was completely full (overbooked, even, with several on standby). Luckily, there were no parallels between this flight and that Chicago-Louisville one.
