all the buildings that need to come down, why the Drama over 1, that isnt in nearly the shape some are on the North side of the bridge I believe the City already owns. Those building are not only an eyesore, but is truly a problem, has been for many years, being little more than a place for illegal drug activity, among other things. Who ever it is that wants to purchase that 1 piece of property, why dont they instead negotiate with the city for an entire block north of the bridge for a parking lot, since the city appears to be so willing to make this property change hands for the buyer.
Few years back, the fire uptown that claimed 2 lives, why wasnt that used for a parking lot, if there was such a need, or did this just manifest since then??
Really Findlay, sell the property you already own north of the bridge to this buyer, perhaps tear down your own buildings, and put your parking lot there. Perhaps its too far for the attorneys to walk to court?? Guess you could shuttle their rear ends back and forth!
Am I the only 1 a lil miff'd that the city is threatening a property owner, when the city owns property north of the bridge that is in much more of a deplorable condition. Take care of your own before you start dictating to others!! Oh wait, this is Findlay, and the good ole boys will do whatever they please, how long have we seen that!!
Appears the city of Findlay think people are pretty ignorant not to see through the fog thats being thrown out there. Well, not everyone is
