        “This is obviously an important next step in what we believe is an important industrial development for Oregon,” said City Administrator Mike Beazley. “We do feel good about what this means in terms of development opportunity and long-term revenue for the city.

        Parcels along Woodville Road in Lake Township being used to temporarily store piles of leaves for making compost don’t meet the township’s zoning requirements, according to a legal opinion provided to the township trustees.

        Solicitor Philip Dombey informed the trustees Tuesday that the owner of the parcels, Jim Mylnek, who also owns Woodville Road Nursery, must receive a zoning certificate from the township to operate the site as a transfer station for the leaf piles. To receive a certificate, the owner must have a stormwater management plan approved by the Wood County engineer’s office and install a buffer yard around the perimeter of the parcels.
