 An expansion project by the Maumee Valley Growers Association into supplying produce for the wholesale market has been a success and will continue, says Joe Perlaky, MVGA executive director.

 After the demolition this summer of a mixed-use building in downtown Port Clinton, the Ottawa County Land Bank is focusing its attention on structures in other parts of the county, JoEllen Regal, president of the land bank’s board of directors, said last week.

Northwood is seeking a part-time recreation director to develop and coordinate city athletic, recreation and event programming.

Oregon City Council last month approved a resolution that imposes a six-month moratorium on the granting of permits or certificates of occupancy for any building, structure, use or change of use that would enable the retail sale of medical marijuana in order to allow council and the planning commission to review applicable Ohio statutes, criminal codes and the city zoning code.

The City of Northwood is partnering with Northwood Commons, site of the former Great Eastern Shopping Center on Woodville Road, to start a farmers  market, which starts this month.
