TOLEDO, Ohio - The Lucas County Land Bank and the City of Toledo have accepted the Diocese of Toledo's offer of the gift of the former Saint Anthony Church building.
In a letter to Bishop Daniel Thomas delivered Tuesday, the Land Bank formally accepted the Bishop's offer of the building and land at 519 Junction Avenue. The Diocese says it will now work to deed the parcels of land to the Land Bank as soon as possible as well as work with the demolition company to fulfill any obligations in the contracts signed earlier this year.
Bishop Thomas said in a statement that he is satisfied with the resolution. “While I wish the recently expressed interest in the building had been made known much earlier, I believe that together we have found a solution that will allow those who want to preserve the building to do just that,”
