(Erie County) MetroParks has a levy on the (May 6) ballot. Before going on to new areas, they should take the leadership role to resolve past issues.
Perhaps they could spearhead coordinating issues necessary to obtaining new deeds for property owners along the corridor once known as the Huron River Greenway.
I am a property owner along the corridor that was officially closed in the fall of 2011. To date, only two property owners have had their properties legally transferred back into their names.
Mick Coles has been working with the auditor’s office, MetroParks and Hartung Title to get the necessary surveying information and other documentation done in order to have the land sections taken by the the MetroParks transferred back to the legal property owners.
During this time, I am sure that both sides have had issues before moving on.
We appreciate everyone’s efforts. However, we wonder how much longer we must patiently wait before the issue is finalized.
I am sure that (the) MetroParks would also like to finalize this issue and concentrate on their many positive programs available to the public.
