Garfield Community Plan

Garfield comprises of businesses, housing, social services, educational institutions, and new development along the Maumee River. This planning process is engaging Garfield residents and stakeholders to create a vision for the area and promote sustainable and equitable change.

As new developments drive and encourage positive momentum within the Garfield Neighborhood, now is the opportunity to build upon past and present visions. By capitalizing on its contribution of a rich historical legacy of leaders, institutions, and architecture along with access to the thriving Maumee riverfront, Garfield can maintain pride in being a historical East Toledo Neighborhood that encourages new businesses and residential growth. This plan addresses stabilizing existing conditions within the neighborhood, recognizing current residents and stakeholders, while promoting growth without displacement.
