A reader comments: It is my belief that the Planning Commission puts itself at a disadvantage by stating the vacancy in their ranks must be filled by " ... a citizen of the corporate City limits of Toledo". I personally know a highly educated and forward thinking person of worldly experience that would be a real asset in Toledo's Planning Commission BUT, he lives just outside the 'City limits' and is therefore denied application. There is some great talent missed by having this 'City limits' rule. For example, did you know the most active Common Ground Toledo (CGT) members who have taken an interest in making the downtown planters and gardens in the downtown area itself DO NOT live in the 'City limits'? There are some very caring and valuable Toledo citizens IN Toledo, and outside the 'City limits'. Toledo's loss if it is not seen fit to include them in the Planning Commission application process. Thank you.
