Renaming of Bancroft & Collingwood Corner

Update: At the Nov. 10 City Council meeting this resolution was “tabled”, effectively killing it. Thanks to Steve Steel and Yvonne Harper for listening to neighbor comments & concerns.

On Tuesday, November 10th at 4:00 Councilwoman Cecilia Adams is presenting a resolution to designate the corner of Bancroft & Collingwood as “Bishop Pat McKinstry Boulevard”.

Dr. Pat McKinstry is currently the pastor at Worship Center located at 2204 Collingwood Blvd. –

There is some question on why this was not presented to the Historic District or the Old West End Association in regards to the change. Historically, in the past, these request were presented.

Any comments or concerns with the Councilwoman Cecilia Adams resolution should be presented to any or all of the following city members:

Update on Bancroft Street

Thursday 11/5/15 crews will be working on street line painting and removal of orange barrels and re-opening two way traffic!

Please take note that one way streets that had been utilized during construction as two way streets will return to normal traffic patterns. For those who live on any of those streets, please be aware that traffic and Toledo Police will be increased in patrol to enforce normal patterns.

Crews will return next week for final street paint application.
