Collins: ProMedica move could mean parking garage at Promenade Park

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

ProMedica has announced a plan to move its headquarters, and about 700 employees, into the Key Bank and Toledo Edison Steam Plant buildings in downtown Toledo.

Those 700 drivers could create a parking issue downtown once the move is completed.

On this week's episode of Leading Edge with Jerry Anderson, Mayor D. Michael Collins says it is possible a parking garage could be built at Promenade Park.

"Is the city going to let them build a multi-story parking garage in that open area overlooking promenade park and the river?" asked Jerry Anderson.

"That will be a decision that we will be working with council on. I mean, the opportunity that this presents and the commitment that ProMedica has made, that's going to change the footprint of downtown Toledo well, well into the future. And we will be probably a green city when this is over with. But that's good because that will be ProMedica green," responded Mayor Collins.
