TOLEDO, OH - The Ohio Lake Erie Commission (OLEC) will be moving their office from its current location at One Maritime Plaza in Toledo to a new location in Sandusky. The new location will enable the Commission to be centrally located for the area it serves across the Ohio Lake Erie basin. The new contact information for the Ohio Lake Erie Commission, effective Feb. 1, will be:
111 E. Shoreline Drive, Suite C
Sandusky, Ohio 44870
In addition to the relocation of the office, the Commission has suspended the winter quarter Lake Erie Protection Fund grant cycle. As a result, the next opportunity for Lake Erie Protection Fund grants will be in the spring of 2012, which has an application deadline of May 3.
The Ohio Lake Erie Commission was established for the purpose of preserving Lake Erie's natural resources, protecting the quality of its waters and ecosystem and promoting economic development in the region. Director James Zehringer of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) serves as the Commission's chairman. Additional members include the directors of the Ohio Department of Transportation, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Development, the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
