Casino Property

Driving into Rossford I thought I saw a for sale sign on the property that was selected for the possible Casino. What's up with that?

For a while it was going to be developed into a mixed use town center, but the developer couldn't get funding. The for sale sign was erected when that deal fell through. I think the owner is just hedging his bets in case Issue 3 fails.

Any local investors? How did they get heir property on the issue? Hmm

The parcel is in a great spot. It's adjacent to I-75, so it can handle the high traffic volume that will ensue and it's on the river.

Best of all, it's cheap. The 44 acre parcel was being offered for $2.25 million when Penn National optioned the land. For comparison, there's a 4 acre parcel near Bass Pro that's listed at $800,000.

If the issue passes, Toledo will be the only city where the casino will not be built downtown where it could help other businesses. It might help Rossford, but not Toledo. Weren't there any negotiations regarding the site?
