Costco plan approved PDF Print E-mail

Plans for the new Costco store building site.
PERRYSBURG - Costco's final site plan was approved by the Planning Commission Thursday, but construction on the store likely won't start until next spring.
The commission approved the plan 5-1, with Greg Bade voting no and Byron Choka absent from the meeting. Bade, who voted against the preliminary site plan in November, said he was still against the project because of traffic problems near the site at Ohio 25 and Eckel Junction Road.
"It's just a congested area already," he said.
Approval was made with five conditions related to sidewalks, parking and landscaping elements as well as aspects of an on-site fuel station. Among the conditions, Costco must obtain further approval before the fuel station could be expanded with additional pumps to the west.
Negotiations between Costco and Columbia Gas Transmission, which owns an easement over a high-pressure gas line running diagonally through the property, have delayed the process several months. A final agreement has not yet been reached between the two companies, and relocation would still need to be approved by state and federal agencies.

Three of four people indicted in a 2013 kidnapping case pleaded guilty to amended charges Thursday.
Brittany Long, 20; Blake Long, 21; and Nicholas Martinez, 19, all of Toledo, appeared before Judge Robert Pollex. Each pleaded guilty to a single count of abduction in the August 2013 incident as part of a plea deal.
The trial in the case for the fourth codefendant, Hui Zhang, 23, Toledo, is to begin Wednesday.
The pleas come in the wake of an unusual case that took shape last summer.
According to authorities, on Aug. 18, 2013, a University of Toledo student from China was contacted by Zhang about going along on a trip to Cedar Point the

With the average lifespan of a bridge being 50 years, the Waterville Bridge will end its 75-plus year life one of three ways.
The Ohio Department of Transportation held a public meeting Thursday to discuss three alternatives for State Routes 64/65 bridge in Lucas and Wood counties, and to discuss a roundabout at the SR 64/65 intersection.  
All alternatives include a wider, two-lane bridge with 4-foot wide shoulders, a sidewalk and a shared-use path for walking or biking.
The existing truss bridge is considered "functionally obsolete" by ODOT because of insufficient lane widths and lack of adequate non-motorized facilities.
Because of a lack of redundancy, or fail-safes to keep the bridge operational if one support system were to fail, the bridge is considered "fracture critical," said Brad Noll, ODOT project manager.
"The more redundancy in a bridge, the safer it is," he said. "We don't want to get to that point where an accident happens and it takes out the bridge."
