Default What is going on in your city?

The Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus post seemed like it was getting a little bit negative. This should be as positive as possible please! What types of developments, events, or anything else is happening in the city where you live? Please share whatever you like with people from all areas of the state and don't turn this into a competition.

I'll get it started with Toledo:

Right now we have a new casino being built and will hopefully be the first one to open up in Ohio in 2012.

The Marina District looks like it will finally be developed by Dashing Pacific, a group of Chinese investors. It will potentially feature residential development, retail, and a new park on the river, with an excellent view of downtown.

The solar industry is reshaping the economy of Toledo thanks to UT. There was a recent announcement that a German company would be working with the University of Toledo to set up its operations in the U.S.

Youngstown:

Downtown:
The Federal Building is undergoing renovations. A new restaurant is moving in on the first floor, and apartments will be on the upper floors.

The Erie Terminal Building is in the process of being bought and will be renovated into more apartments, with retail on the first floor.

The Paramount Theater has been bought by the city. The facade will be saved, and a private group of people want to utilize the open area behind as an outdoor event location.

South Side:
The location of some of the most notorious neighborhoods in the city, is seeing some much needed reinvestment.
Youngstown News, YSU group targets South Side for development
Youngstown News, 2nd market in store for South Side

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation has done some good work in three targeted neighborhoods. I think they have done most of their work in the Idora Neighborhood, also on Youngstown's south side.

North Side:
The Wick Park Neighborhood has organized a neighborhood group, and has made first steps to restoring this neighborhood.

How will the new Toledo casino compete with the casinos up the road in Detroit?

What are you talking about? There hasn't been a solar panel "boom" yet; we are still early in the development of alternative energy. Solar is an important component of Toledo's economy so we have not missed out on it. We are currently getting a new company from Germany to make their American operations in Toledo.

half my family works in the industry, it was never big like it was supposed to be. the stock options never came, the giant raises never came, it never happened.

When oil and natural gas becomes prohibitively expensive, solar will thrive...it's just not at that breaking point of where those energy sources are so high that demand for alternatives is there. People are dumb, they just want cheap energy and $4 for a gallon of gas is still cheap enough even though people *****. Solar will eventually have its day. Good for Toledo if they're doing good things.
