SAM is an investment in the one-mile stretch of Sylvania Avenue that extends from Douglas west to Secor. This project was developed out of a need to strengthen Toledo neighborhoods through an investment in a cohesive vision. Though this is a small stretch of road, it is a corridor to the thriving retail area around Westfield Franklin Park Mall. Elevating the Sylvania Avenue corridor will highlight the extensive work done by the City and State to the surrounding areas, and will attract both home buyers and businesses.
