LAKEWOOD, Ohio -- With an eye on stormwater solutions regarding sewer overflows, Lakewood is negotiating with a Lake Avenue homeowner about the purchase of a $1.2 million home located on a 1.64-acre lot. 'The city has been made aware of an opportunity to submit an offer to purchase the 12984 Lake Avenue property,' Lakewood Director of Planning Shawn Leininger said. The impetus behind the land purchased is related to Lakewood's aging 100-year-old sewer system, which at last count will cost roughly $300 million to modernize.
