      Forum discusses Westgate Village Shopping expansion

      The proposal is set to be reviewed by the City Plan Commission on April 10.

      West Toledo residents provided feedback on plans to re-develop the Westgate Village Shopping Center at a forum on Wednesday.

      Reactions were mixed from about 40 people who attended the forum on University of Toledo's campus to hear what the owners propose to do.

      This includes the demolition of the buildings Arnie's Bar and Grill and El Nuevo Vallarta Restaurant, located on West Central Avenue near Secor Road.

      Developments would include either three buildings or one structure to fit four retail spaces.

      "Our goal is to make what we build on the north side of the streets to be of high quality as on the south side of the street," CEO Liz Holland of Abbell Association.

      The proposal is set to be reviewed by the Toledo's City Plan Commission on April 10.Businesses in the re-developed parcel would open by Christmas if approved.
