Toledo plans to demolish North Towne Mall

Press Release:

Bell, Webb to announce plan to demolish North Towne Square site

Toledo Mayor Michael P. Bell and City Councilwoman Lindsay Webb will announce a plan to demolish the former North Towne Square mall at a press conference at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 in the Mayor’s Office.

The mall, vacant and allowed by owners to fall into disrepair, has become a blight on the community and surrounding businesses. Using a federal brownfield revolving loan fund the city can demolish the mall without tapping a stressed general fund. The same fund was used to demolish Southwyck in 2009. The plan will allow the Super Fitness health and fitness complex to remain open as a stand-alone facility.

The administration has sent authorizing legislation to city council for action. The item will be on the agenda at the November 22nd Agenda Review meeting.
