Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner will speak at a forum in Cleveland today at the invitation of the Federal Reserve Bank on Toledo s new housing policy.
The forum, The View from City Hall, is co-sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Local Initiatives Support Corp.
Mr. Finkbeiner established the Toledo Housing Task Force in 2006 to find ways of encouraging investment in Toledo s neighborhoods and to improve the overall quality of Toledo s housing stock, mayoral spokesman Brian Schwartz said.
The task force s report issued in April recommended the city step up code enforcement, remove regulatory barriers to new housing construction, and continue funding for housing rehabilitation and construction.
