Led by a network of corporate and civic leaders from the community, ConnecToledo is a 501(c)3 organization committed to the redevelopment of downtown Toledo. This is accomplished by connecting public and private investment to facilitate the implementation of the Downtown Toledo Master Plan and other community priorities.
In 2017, ConnecToledo evolved from the 22nd Century Committee, which sought to align downtown revitalization efforts through a new master plan. As the master plan was completed, the 22nd Century Committee was reconstituted as the Downtown Toledo Development Corporation with the public-facing name of ConnecToledo.
Contracting with the Downtown Toledo Improvement District (DTID) to deliver on their Service Plan, ConnecToledo maintains programs for marketing/communications, business advocacy, residential attraction, business attraction including pre-development activity and an ambassador program focused on hospitality, cleaning and safety. The map of DTID’s boundaries is found here.
When you’re in downtown Toledo, a clean and secure environment makes all the difference. Our Ambassador Team is here to welcome and assist you. They’re knowledgeable on restaurants, attractions, events, services, parking and directions. Always ready to greet you with a smile 7 days a week. Call for assistance at 1-419-467-9451.
