KENT STATE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS RESEARCH DESIGN PROJECT
Recently, students from Kent State University's College of Architecture and Environmental Design partnered with the City of Sandusky to create new theoretical designs for some of the vacant buildings and empty sites in the downtown which would rejuvenate the area. The students were tasked to develop their own building program which included hotels, museums, music venues, urban agriculture and lake research, and transform them into use for existing and vacant buildings or plots in Sandusky.
It is hoped these projects can inspire and provide a vision for the community for what Sandusky could be.
Selected drawings and models, and a continuous video presentation of the 120 designs, will be displayed at the Sandusky State Theatre Gallery, located next to the ticket sales lobby. The public is welcome to view the designs from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and during Theatre events. In addition, designs will be displayed in storefronts throughout the downtown area starting January 16. Visitors will have the opportunity to give comments and opinions as well.

VACANT & ABANDONED BUILDINGS
The Sandusky Fire Department's Prevention Bureau has made efforts to catalog and visually identify vacant and abandoned buildings.
