    Favorite Streets in Ohio

    Great idea for a thread!

    Ohio Census / Population Trends

    After just now reading through this thread, and looking at the new data, it appears that the changes to the Toledo area have flown under the radar. There was a considerable shuffle in the northwest part of the state. Toledo's MSA (Lucas County, Wood County, and Fulton County) gained 1 county (Ottawa County). Using the 2010 census numbers, the Toledo MSA went from 610,001 residents to 651,429 residents. Toledo's CSA gained 3 counties (Hancock County, Seneca County, and Sandusky County). (Ottawa County went from being a CSA county to an MSA County). This increases Toledo's CSA population from 651,429 residents to 843,900 (an increase of nearly 200,000). This bumps it ahead of the Youngstown-Warren CSA. The use of MSAs and CSAs as a method of population measurement certainly comes with many doubts, but it's interesting nonetheless.

    The Official *I Love Cleveland* Thread

    This! I remember my mom telling a story of her helping a customer and in their casual conversation, the customer----from South Carolina----was surprised that she couldn't see across Lake Erie. Like, she thought that the lake was small enough for her to see Canada. lol

    Sandusky Revisited

    It is such a nice place! It is home to the city's only rooftop bar too---Moseley's Public House---with great views of Sandusky Bay.
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  10. 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
  11. 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....

Water St. by Daly’s Pub. FULL STORY: http://www.sanduskyregister.com/story/201803270014 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This renovated building will be the new home of the Lake Erie Shores & Islands tourist and visitor's bureau. Right now, their office is located near Sandusky Mall south of town.
  13. $14M project proposed for the Feick Building SANDUSKY — A multimillion-dollar proposal calls for reactivating one of downtown Sandusky’s tallest and largest buildings. During Monday’s public meeting, city commissioners backed a financial package specifically tailored for project developer Marous Brothers Construction to revamp and modernize the empty Feick Building on East Market Street. FULL STORY: http://www.sanduskyregister.com/story/201803260013 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I'm hopeful the tax credit is approved for this project! *fingers crossed*
  14. 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.

  15. Check out downtown Sandusky's new market SANDUSKY — A longtime grocer believes he can successfully produce something completely foreign to the Sandusky market. 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....
