Neighbors still upset counter culture shop is moving forward
TOLEDO, Oh (WNWO) —
The Shed as it's usually called is going to be built, despite opposition.
Renea Howard who lives on Glendale Ave, is not buying what she says is a front for the store.
"Yes, they sell tobacco products at that store...but let's be realistic, those items are used to smoke marijuana with," said Howard.
Residents and parents are worried about the imagine the store projects they say.
"It's a little crazy that we normalize marijuana a hundred and ninety feet from an elementary school and where our high school (students) wait for a buss to go to school right outside that business," said Howard.
Toledo City Council held a meeting today to hear from residents and the input was clear, they want to prevent this from happening in the future.
"We're going to ask the plan commission and city council to address some code changes so this might not happen again in the future. It's a very unique business," said Toledo City Councilman Rob Ludeman.
As apart of an already required building permit, the shop says they're going to address some landscaping issues.
"We've asked for some landscaping changes to help dress up the neighborhood," said Councilman Ludeman.
