Oregon council on Monday authorized the mayor and finance director to enter into an agreement with the Oregon Economic Development Foundation for future land development and the purchase of city property located at 4417 Parkway Road.

The city, which owns approximately 12.8 acres of property in the Cedar Point Industrial Park, plans to transfer the parcel to the Oregon Economic Development Foundation, which is the city’s economic development arm.

The Foundation is negotiating with developers to use the land for construction needs for the Oregon Clean Energy project, immediately north of the site, according to City Administrator Mike Beazley. After the property is sold, the Foundation will transfer the proceeds to the city.

The Sandusky County commissioners are weighing the prospect of hiring someone to expedite the county’s ditch maintenance and improvement efforts.

Three possible options discussed during the commissioners’ April 3 meeting were to:

• Hire a full-time employee for the Soil and Water Conservation District who could assist with ditch maintenance when not needed for the district’s other projects.

• Hire a full-time employee for the county engineer’s office and fund the position with revenues from a source other than gasoline taxes.

The Black Swamp Bird Observatory and American Bird Conservancy are challenging another wind turbine project, contending its location poses considerable risk to migrating songbirds.

In an April 4 letter to the Ohio Power Siting Board, Kim Kaufman, executive director of the observatory, and Michael Hutchins, national coordinator of the conservancy’s Bird Smart Wind Energy Campaign, say they have many of the same concerns regarding the proposed location of the LEEDCo. wind turbine project in Lake Erie near Cleveland as they did about a turbine project proposed for Camp Perry near Oak Harbor.

Lake Erie Energy Development Co. is proposing to erect six turbines with a total capacity of 18 megawatts. The turbines would be located about seven to nine miles offshore.
