       The Oregon Planning Commission recently voted down a request for a Conditional Use Permit that would have allowed a two family dwelling unit at 2831 Starr Avenue.

        The property had been approved in 1958 through the Planning Commission to have two living units there. But the units were to be used for family members. If the property were to be sold, it was to be as a single family residence. The only way to change it would be to ask the Planning Commission for a Conditional Use in an R-2 Zone, according to James Gilmore, commissioner of Building and Zoning.

        The zoning code states if the owner met certain provisions, a Conditional Use would be considered to allow a two family in a single family medium density area, explained Gilmore. Some of those provisions that must be met are minimum lot size, four car parking per building, two car garage indoor parking, and screening because it is next to a single family residential district.

         The Oregon Planning Commission approved a Conditional Use Permit that will allow for the construction of two-family residences at 3015 Navarre Avenue.

        The property is in an R-2 Medium Density Residential Zoned District.

        The property is located at the end of Luverne Avenue. Don J. Baumgartner was the applicant for the Conditional Use Permit.

       Local officials are hoping a change to the speed limit along a stretch of Genoa-Clay Center Road in Ottawa County will reduce confusion for motorists.

        Ron Lajti, Ottawa County engineer, said his office conducted a traffic study on the road after receiving complaints from residents about speeding motorists between State Route 51 and Hellwig Road.

         A former Genoa police officer has pled not guilty to counts of sexual battery, disseminating matter harmful to juveniles and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a child.

        Benjamin Jacks, 23, of Millbury, entered the plea Tuesday in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court, after being indicted by a county grand jury in March.

        The Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction of a man found guilty in 2017 of reckless homicide after a fight at the Country Ridge Lounge in Lake Township.

        The appeals court ruled the Wood County Common Pleas Court complied with felony sentencing statutes when it sentenced Kevin W. Knott, Norwalk, O., to a maximum 36-month prison term.
