Rick Payeff, director of facilities and planning, said the zoo will submit a site plan for the improvements to the Toledo Plan Commission. The plan includes the aerial course, a new giraffe-feeding platform at the overlook, and the enclosure of the Nairobi Pavilion for hosting private events year-round.
