Toledo Campus Ministry Fellowship filed a lawsuit yesterday asking Lucas County Common Pleas Court to review Toledo City Council s rejection of plans to expand the group s Interfaith Center on Brookdale Road.
Council on Oct. 31 denied an application from the fellowship seeking a special-use permit to build a community recreation facility at the Interfaith Center, 2086 Brookdale Rd., near West Bancroft Street and Secor Road.
The Interfaith Center, adjacent to the University of Toledo, hoped to expand its meditation chapel into a coffee house and activity space. Council rejected the application after neighbors mounted an intensive lobbying effort.
