The Team

The TWI has served as a model in effective public-private partnership through the efforts of its diverse group of local entities and businesses. Because of the close collaboration between government, planners, engineers and the contractors bidding on the work, the Toledo Waterways Initiative is on schedule and on budget.

The City’s Community Program Advisory Committee is composed of community leaders, key stakeholders and citizens at-large. The committee serves on behalf of Toledo’s citizens and water/sewer customers to provide input and feedback to the City and the program manager on issues relating to the TWI.
The committee meets quarterly and its members are appointed by Toledo’s mayor.

Neighborhood Advisory Committees and Business Advisory Committees

The Toledo Waterways Initiative appoints smaller advisory groups – Neighborhood Advisory Committees and Business Advisory Committees – for specific projects that have the potential to impact neighborhoods and businesses. The NACs and BACS are formed to provide input and feedback to TWI management during the planning and construction phases of a project. In addition, members of the TWI leadership team meet with Toledo Block Watch groups to provide periodic construction updates.
