TOLEDO -- The multi-million dollar plans for Toledo's Erie Street Market and development along Swan Creek go forward but not without some concern over the rather paltry amount of earnest money a California-based company is offering.
Tetra Tech anticipates spending $4 million on shops, living spaces and a boardwalk along the creek. At a council committee hearing Tuesday, some members indicated they'd like to see a larger commitment than the $5,000 Tetra Tech is paying for first dibs on the project.
The company, however, is saying it won't disappoint. "We take that very seriously. We don't want to exceed expectations at this point, but we're very interested in this opportunity," said Jeffrey Fleischman, Tetra Tech.
Toledo City Council won't vote on a new plan for the market until May 6.
