Metropolis internet hosting first public discussion board on Toledo Restoration Plan cash


TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – The city of Toledo is hosting its first public forum to receive input from community members to help steer the city’s $ 180.9 million American Rescue Plan Act.

The meeting will take place on Thursday at 6 p.m. at Rogers High School.

“We want to make sure that as many Toledoans as possible contribute as the US $ 180.9 million federal government can provide through the American Rescue Plan Act,” said Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz. “This is a unique opportunity to invest in our community and that is why it is so important that we receive feedback and input.”

The city has focused on five investment areas in the Toledo Recovery Plan:

  • Youth, recreation and parks;
  • safe and livable neighborhoods;
  • Job creation and economic development;
  • green and healthy living;
  • Avoiding cuts in city services.

Toledoans are asked to take a survey that will be published at toledo.oh.gov/recovery. The public can also email ideas to [email protected].
