 Parties involved in a complaint filed to block a preliminary injunction against owners of a quarry in Benton Township have agreed to an extension that allows attorneys for the owners to file their response by April 13.

 Attorneys for Rocky Ridge Development, LLC, and Custom Ecology of Ohio filed a complaint with the Ohio Supreme Court against Ottawa County Common Pleas Court Judge Bruce Winters, who last month issued a preliminary injunction against Rocky Ridge Development.

It prevents the company from mixing spent lime from the City of Toledo’s water treatment plant with soil and burying it in cells at the quarry where the property is zoned for A-3 agricultural use.

 If CSX Corp. follows through on plans to cease operations of a section of Stanley Yard in Lake Township, Richard Welling, a township trustee, sees an opportunity.

 He told his fellow trustees Tuesday the rail yard is already zoned for industrial use and has the potential for being developed into an industrial park. Utilities are also in place, he added.

 “This is something we could do by partnering with the Village of Walbridge,” Welling said after the trustees meeting.

 Elmore mayor Matt Damschroder is expected during Monday’s (April 10) meeting of village council to appoint Jeff Harrison to the position of chief of the village police department to replace George Hayes, who retired last month.

 Sergeant Harrison, who’s been with the department for more than 20 years, has been serving as acting chief while Hayes has been on a leave of absence.

Oregon City Council recently passed a resolution in support of designating a zoning overlay as the first step in creating a downtown area that contains retail, residential, an entertainment district, and open green space along Navarre Avenue.
 
The Planning Commission will study properties in the designated area to determine a recommendation to council for the zoning overlay. After it is reviewed by the commission, it will go before council for approval, then be discussed at a public hearing scheduled for May 22 at 8 p.m. in council chambers, according to Jim Gilmore, commissioner of building and zoning.

Oregon and Lucas County will file a combined application under the Community Housing Impact & Preservation (CHIP) program for financial assistance for various housing needs of low and moderate income residents.
 
The state provides funds to local governments under the CHIP program. The city has participated in CHIP for several years.
