        Oregon City Council recently approved an agreement with the Lake Erie Foundation to fund up to one-third of the cost of the Lake Erie Economic Impact Analysis and Western Lake Erie Report Card.

        Lucas County, Toledo and Oregon will each provide one third of the funding for the project.

        The legislation is considered an important step in the ongoing efforts to find solutions to the long term algae challenge in the lake. The goal is to follow the successful model developed in Chesapeake Bay that dealt with similar environmental challenges, and has now turned a corner toward improvement.

        Is the state on the verge of misspending $36 million on projects aimed at reducing phosphorus levels in Lake Erie?

        Mike Ferner, coordinator for Advocates for a Clean Lake Erie, said Senate Bill 299 was “rushed” through the chamber and is “…another $36 million for things we know don’t work.”

        The Northwestern Water and Sewer District said it has started notifying customers in the cities of Northwood and Rossford about a project to replace service lines containing lead.

        Letters are being sent to 322 home and property owners, informing them about the project, which is expected to start in late July or August.

Metroparks Toledo will hold a public meeting Thursday, June 21, in the Navarre Park Shelterhouse to give an update on the planning process for a new waterfront park on the east bank of the Maumee River, opposite downtown Toledo.

The open house style meeting will begin with a brief presentation at 6:30. Park district staff will remain until 8 p.m. to talk with residents about the plans at information stations.

       Oregon has scheduled improvements for the South Shore Veterans Park area this year and next year after holding several meetings to gauge public input on redeveloping the park.

        The city has received professional engineering analysis, as well as ideas from the public on proposed features of a revised park.

        Ideas offered at previous meetings included a splash pad, gazebos, enhancement of the Haley Boardwalk, development of a natural beach area, facilitating the launch of kayaks or stand-up paddle boards, a fishing pier or short dock, sand volleyball, and relocating Fire Station No.3 from its current location about a mile from the park to the southeast corner of the park.
