The Overlay document provides assurances and protects property values for all building owners in the District. Key elements of the document are:
- Oversight and enforcement are front-lined by the Toledo Warehouse District Association (TWDA). The City of Toledo provides enforcement tools, as called for in City code..
- TWDA appoints an Architectural Review Committee (ARC) of five members that are property owners, residents, and at least one architect/landscape planner from the District.
- The ARC is the first line of approval for any building additions, exterior changes, or demolitions.
- The ARC also enforces the parking lot standards, as per the Overlay document and City code.
We believe the creation of the ARC is a great benefit to any prospective developers and existing property owners. These people are volunteers, not paid City employees, and more importantly, they are vested in this neighborhood and want to encourage and approve plans that will be beneficial for the area.
