UPDATE: Subdivision Expansion Approved West Of Findlay

3/8/18 – 10:36 A.M.
UPDATE – 4:33 P.M. (Correction for number of homes added)

The expansion of a Findlay subdivision is moving forward. The Findlay City Planning Commission approved plans for 24 more homes on the southern edge of the Dold subdivision near Liberty-Benton High School. The plans still have to be finalized by the Hancock Regional Planning Commission.

The developer says the current retention pond at the edge of the subdivision is enough to handle the extra homes. The county doubled the size of the pond several years ago.

The commissions approval is contingent on renaming two streets. The developer proposed Eagles Edge Drive and Eagles Talon as two street names. The commission says there are too many streets with the word eagle in them, which can cause confusion for emergency responders.
