Last summer, public officials and community leaders joined Penn National Gaming, Inc. for the groundbreaking of the $250 million Hollywood Casino-Toledo, scheduled to open the first half of 2012.

The 290,000 square foot casino can be seen rising off Interstate 75 and Miami Street on the banks of the Maumee River just opposite downtown Toledo. The casino’s art deco architectural design will be complete with structured parking on a 44-acre East Toledo site adjacent to the Libbey-Owens-Ford/Pilkington in Rossford.

The casino project was expected to create 2,100 new jobs during construction and employ 1,200 when it opens — with at least 90 percent of the permanent jobs designated for residents of the Toledo metropolitan area, said a City press release during the groundbreaking.

Under a blanket of winter snow, a new energy-efficient roof is taking root at Mercy St. Charles Hospital in Oregon.

In November, the hospital became the first facility in Lucas County to install a LiveRoof – a modular vegetative green roof system – when about 12,000 square feet of roofing in the four patient courtyards were replaced. The roof is expected to last about 40 years – twice as long as a traditional roof.

Other 2010 highlights at St. Charles include:
• To help meet the needs of uninsured and underinsured individuals, Mercy St. Charles is working with the Dental Center of Northwest Ohio to offer monthly dental services on the St. Charles campus. The Dental Center’s mobile dental clinic, the Smile Express, uses the mobile PET/CT parking area the fourth Friday of each month.

Jerusalem Township officials broke ground last year on a long planned sports complex.

The site, behind Jerusalem Elementary School on Yondota Road, will feature two baseball diamonds and two soccer fields, said trustee Joe Kiss. Construction is expected to begin this summer.

The township has its own recreation department, which is funded by a recreation levy. Trustee David Bench said Jerusalem Elementary School, which had drainage problems, will benefit from the project.

“We tiled the parks so we can get the ball diamonds in the back of Jerusalem School,” Bench said. “We also tiled the school property, per se, so the playground wasn’t all lake.”

The township is subcontracting the project to save money.
