The Devil's Lake area, a
popular vacation spot for people in northwest Ohio, is getting a major upgrade.
Developers have been
working to bring new life to the area, and they say their hard work is starting
to pay off.
Several new businesses have
come to the area recently, and people say they've had a huge impact on the
"A few years ago, there
was probably three or four people you'd see all day long walking through here,"
said Dave Gajda. "Now there's hundreds on any given day."
Gajda, a developer, says
he spent a lot of his childhood in the area, but when he came back to visit a
few years ago, it wasn't quite how he remembered. Businesses had closed and
homes had fallen into disrepair.
So Gajda teamed up with partner
Jose Malagon to turn the area around.
"We started looking around
to the history of what was here before, and then trying to figure out how to
bring some of those activities back," Malagon said.
Together they've re-vamped
the existing bar and grill, brought in new shops and most recently, built a
structure to hold an ice cream and coffee shop and a real estate office.
"It's been quite the
change," said Manitou Beach resident Bob Fredeley. "Before, it was just the
little old bar there, and that's all there was. Now, you've got people walking
down the streets all the time."
The community now has
businesses, summer homes and activities.
"It's bring people
together, so it's a sense of community now," Gajda said. "It's back to the way
I remember it as a child."
He says this is just the
beginning. Gajda and Malagon have been working with other developers to bring
more to the area.
