Huron officials expect the city’s most pressing project — aimed at anchoring a downtown waterfront renaissance — to reach a major benchmark months ahead of schedule.

On Tuesday, construction crews demolished the last of 18 silos previously towering over the former ConAgra site.

Workers from Ed Burdue & Co. anticipate they’ll clear all rubble and remnants from the 10-plus acres by Aug. 22.

Once Huron officials receive the OK from state workers, city leaders in the public and private sectors will brainstorm ways to cultivate the area for commercial, residential or mixed use.

For more on this story, pick up a copy of Wednesday's Register. See more demolition photos HERE.

Have ideas on what kind of development should be built at the site? Post suggestions below.

Did they have Haunted Collector check it first?

I hope the brainstorming will bring us closer to the 21st century that brings revenue and more interest in the North Shore of Ohio!  I'm in great resolution that Cedar Point doesn't have to be our largest source of economy for this area!! CHING!

Let's put a trailer park there and really draw the summer people! Camp Huron anyone?

 Now that they can't watch the demolition, what will the people of Huron do for entertainment?  Oh yeah, school board meetings...

Hopefully they build something nice there like upscale living or trendy shops, coffee shops, or something else to do by the water. Huron needs something other than NOTHING. Huron has so much potential but nobody seems to do anything about it. Just my thoughts
