Bridgestone land rezoned

November 26, 2013

Council passed legislation Monday evening to create a Planned Development District in South Akron around the new Bridgestone Americas’ technical center. The rezoning will permit development of apartments, small businesses and retail operations that could support Bridgestone’s operations on 84 acres along Firestone Parkway. Council also approved selling land on E. Waterloo Road to Akron-based Vadxx Energy for a plastics processing plant and R&D center, and it approved a new gravel parking lot at 2655 Akron-Peninsula Road where MetroParks is building a new mountain bike trail.
