Proposed power plant

A compressed air energy storage facility able to provide up to 2700 MW of power has been proposed to be built in the city. First Energy Corporation of Akron, Ohio purchased rights to develop plant in November 2009.


The city holds a yearly Apple Cider Festival in September. It includes a parade, fireworks, crafts and attractions. Begun by the Lions Club in 1988, the family members thought about starting an Octoberfest, but decided that since the Lions were known for selling cider in the Loyal Oak area of the City, that a Cider Festival would best suit the residents of that area. On September 23 & 24, 1989, the first Cider Festival was held as a local community event. For the 20th Anniversary in 2008, the location of the Festival was changed to be held closer to the City center at the Columbia Woods Park complex.
