        Jose Rosales, Staff Sergeant E6, U.S. Marine Corps, of Oregon, was among honorees at the annual Governor’s Distinguished Hispanic Ohioans Awards Gala held Oct. 14 in Columbus.

        Oregon City Council on Monday extended a public hearing on a request for a zoning change for the purpose of operating a four bedroom Bed and Breakfast at 5024 Seaman Road.

        Applicant Derrick Jaegle is requesting a Special Use Permit because the proposed Bed and Breakfast is in an R-1 residential zone, which does not permit it. A Bed and Breakfast would be allowable in an R-3 multi-family zone, according to James Gilmore, commissioner of building and zoning.

         The Oregon Planning Commission recommended approval of the SUE at its Sept. 19 meeting.

        Oregon City Council on Monday approved a joint cooperation agreement with the City of Toledo for funding from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for the bid and construction of the Navarre Avenue resurfacing project.

        Toledo has received grant funding from ODOT for the construction of the resurfacing project. A portion of the project is located in Oregon and it is beneficial for both cities to resurface Navarre Avenue at the same time as a joint project through the ODOT Urban Paving Program.

        Oregon City Council on Monday passed an amendment to a municipal ordinance that expedites enforcement of zoning complaints.

        The municipal ordinance sets forth the procedure for notice when the city receives a zoning complaint. The procedure involves providing violators with several notices, which results in a delay in the enforcement of the violation.

        Council amended the ordinance to enhance zoning violations within the city and improve the responsiveness to any zoning violation by not requiring multiple notices to be issued beyond the first 30-day notice.

        “We wanted to move away from using police for citations and go to a middle ground, which we think will work,” said City Administrator Mike Beazley.
