TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Cleveland-based development group is targeting land at Dorr and Westwood for a potential off-campus student housing project near the main campus of the University of Toledo.

The NRP Group, LLC, has submitted a request to the city to vacate Kury Avenue, a small section of road between Dorr and Westwood. A company representative says the group is talking with property owners and is expecting to file a formal site plan to the planning commission in the next three to six months.

That is not sitting well with Dan Dawson with the United Residential Neighborhoods Association. He says there is plenty of student housing both on and off campus, and many home owners will oppose the project if a site plan is filed.

"When different developers come in, they just have a mindset on ‘We're going to make some money.' They're not concerned about having extra housing for students. It's an income for them," said Dawson.

The planning commission is also keeping track of another potential off-campus housing project along Bancroft near Westwood, but no site plan has been submitted yet.
