Southeast Toledo landowners Lyle and Diane Mattson got what they wanted Wednesday when the Toledo City Council approved new zoning to allow new home construction on ten acres they recently bought from the Lincoln County School District. It’s located on some moderately steep slopes north of Ammon Road, about a quarter mile east of Sturdevant. The school district decided it didn’t need the land anymore so they sold the property to the Mattsons who say they want to build homes on it someday. As long as the land was owned by the school district, there weren’t any property taxes paid on it. But by virtue of the sale to a private party, and the new zoning placed on it by the city council, the Mattsons are going to be contributing to the city’s property tax rolls that fund police, fire, library, pool, roads, etc. The Mattsons told the council via a letter that they don’t have any immediate plans to begin building houses or roads on the ten acres. But when they do, it will increase taxes on the property even further. The Mattsons live on an adjoining six acre parcel.
