HOF impact research session

There was a second public input session Tuesday on development around the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. It is part of a federally funded study to find ways to maximize the benefits to the community of the $800 milllion Hall of Fame Village project.

Voters in Canton passed the city’s first income-tax increase in nearly 40 years this week, and the half-percent increase will be used for primarily for safety and economic and neighborhood development.

The increase is expected to generate more than $11 million a year. Twenty percent of that will go toward the general fund, and 10 percent each will go into the capital fund and a neighborhood development fund. Mayor Tom Bernabei says the rest will be used for economic development.

The first of at least three public forums on how the Pro Football Hall of Fame Village project may affect neighborhoods near it was held Tuesday evening in Canton. 

It was a public gathering but not a traditional presentation. A hundred or so residents circulated among information tables around the room with maps and fact sheets on parts of the project.

Attendees like Larry Fisher of the Meyers Lake neighborhood were disappointed not to see a comprehensive view.
