Wow..Toledo is moving to municiple power! Thats a real contrarian position given the trend to privatize everything in site nowadays.

Sacramento would be a good model for you guys..the SMUD, Sacramento Municiple Utilities District, used to have some of the lowest power rates in the US.

BonjourToledo, I admire your tenacity in tellin the world about Toledo, It is a great story to tell. But the lack of any other Toledo posters is a problem. I'm OK with it stickied because I do check on it often, but rarely post. I have read enough about the UT/MCO merger to last a lifetime, but hey it is your thread.

I wish more people from Toledo would add content. Toledo's warehouse district is AWESOME!

i'm actually a toledo native as well (and i check this thread everytime its bumped up), but i can say the lack of activity on this thread is not too surprising. In Toledo, 15 minutes turns to an hour, which then turns into three. (our last mayor did absolutely nothing) Time stands still, the warehouse district redevelopment is moving pretty slowly, and the damn bridge has been pushed back about 3 years.

At least we are now heading in the right direction, once the snowball starts to pick up some.

Thanks--I noticed there are some other Toledo forumers on other website such as Urban Ohio which does a pretty good job in posting pictures and news about development and etc.

In my professional opinion sometimes people are obsessed with the project development's timeline too much and they say "it is done yet?....is it done yet?" just like a kid asking their dad "are we there yet?" without considering the magnitude starting a project. As planners and engineers always know--we be patient, be conservative, be proactive, be organized, be knowledgable, and the project will be completed correctly but you can never estimate perfect timing because we would rather see it built right than built on time. Too many folks get too excited and demand too much of a project which they really need to understand the timing of planning phases, engineering phases, and construction phases that need to work together seamlessly.
