BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The debate over what type of development can be built on the corner of Wooster and North Prospect streets in Bowling Green has been going on for four months.

A new "B-5" zone was created to allow for certain restrictions requested by nearby residents, including no bars, tattoo shops, or car dealers. Only a 2-story building – commercial on the bottom, residential on top – will be allowed.

The final details, involving the buffer zone, were last to be approved at a meeting Monday night.

A wall will be required to be 6-feet-tall, made of brick, placed five feet from the edge of one property line, and 10 feet from another. Residents wanted a taller wall, further from the property lines.

"Moving the wall even a few feet off the property is going to effect things like engineering, the drainage, the parking lot," explained Steve Green, a representative of the developers. "If we have to move that wall off of the property line, it's not going to work."

The option to change what was recommended by city officials, and adding more suggestions by concerned residents, was turned down when four members of council approved the ordinance as-is.

The development of the building can go ahead as planned.
