PERRYSBURG - The Perrysburg Heights area may be joining the city in 2014.
Mayor Nelson Evans confirmed reports this week that he wishes to get the ball rolling on annexation procedures for the neighborhood before his tenure as mayor ends this year.
"We're doing the analysis right now, doing our due diligence, so to speak. Hopefully we can at least get this process started before I leave office. Obviously, the annexation will take longer than we have time left."
Perrysburg Heights is a subdivision of Perrysburg Township located along Roachton Road, and is also accessible from Ohio 25, across from Levis Commons. It is home to the Perrysburg Heights Community Association, and is the site of Ohio's South of the Border Festival each summer. The Heights encompasses approximately 90 acres, and contains more than 1,100 parcels of land.
Evans said the move has been part of the city's designs going forward for some time.
"It's always been a part of our plan all along. We have an annexation plan that we've put in place. That was the next one on the list. And that's still an 'island' in the city, and we like to close those islands up."
In recent years, the city has had a policy of annexing "islands," or sections of property technically located in Perrysburg and Middleton townships, but still situated within the city limits, into the city itself.
"I think it's easier for our safety forces and our service division and stuff not to have to decide what's in (the city), what's out. I think it's easier for the residents, too."
Evans said once the land is annexed, the city may apply for community development block grants for improvements in the Heights.
"It could be parks, it could be money for any type of improvements out there," he said.
"I think it'll be very positive, I believe," Evans said of how he feels the Heights' residents will react to the annexation. "Just from my preliminary discussions with community members out there, seems very positive."
Messages left with members of the Perrysburg Heights Community Association Board of Trustees seeking comment were not returned by press time.
