$9M Housing Project Proposed At Former Hoppers Site

SANDUSKY — Give some credit to Sandusky officials.  They’re pursuing a project which would clean up an eyesore at a keystone city intersection, address a major housing need for area seniors and not cost local taxpayers one cent. But will the state? That’s a tough call. During a recent public meeting, city commissioners supported a collaborative effort to file a funding application with NRP Group. The Cleveland-area company has developed about 30,000 housing units across 12 U.S. states. Their project seeks state tax credit money to completely pay for a proposed $9 million residential development project at Tiffin Avenue and Venice Road. The site formerly housed the now-defunct Hoppers mobile home park and a shuttered Sunoco gas station.
