Lucas County to demolish former OMJ Lucas County building

TOLEDO, OH – The Lucas County-owned building at 1301 Monroe St., the former location of OhioMeansJobs Lucas County, will be demolished to make way for the new Lucas County Canine Care & Control Center.

Demolition work is set to begin on Monday, May 15, and fencing has already been erected round the perimeter of the property. 

According to Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak, the demolition marks an important step forward on a project that will greatly benefit the LC4 staff and people who will use the new Canine Care Center to adopt and receive services. 

“We are excited to see something happening on site,” Commissioner Wozniak said. “We've been talking about it for so long. This is a great step going forward on a project that will be a big improvement for the dogs, the workers, visitors, and the community.”

During the demolition, there may be periodic closures that will affect traffic on Monroe, 13th, and 14th streets.

Groundbreaking for the new Canine Care & Control Center is scheduled for this summer. The new facility is expected to provide a better environment for dogs and workers, and will be a valuable resource for the community.

Lucas County officials are committed to keeping the community informed about the demolition and construction processes. More information will be released as it becomes available.
