Shovels in the ground and new housing developments rising up on Perrysburg's western and southern sides are signs the economy is stabilizing, the city's new planning and zoning administrator said.

"For a community of 20,000 this is a good level of activity, considering the economy," said Thomas King, who took over the department in June. "It is turning around, and a lot of communities don't have that level of activity."

But perhaps the most dramatic growth could appear at Levis Commons, where 104 acres -- zoned for a mixed use of retail, office, and residential -- sit untouched.

No concrete plans have been brought to the city yet, but Mr. King said he believed development could potentially triple at the popular shopping district starting in the next two years.

School and city officials are already preparing for the city's population growth.
