New car wash in Tiffin? Westgate says not so fast, sues to stop construction & remove building




TIFFIN, OH — According to newly-obtained court documents, the owners of the Tiffin Westgate shopping property has filed a lawsuit against Magic Tunnel Midwest LLC out of Dublin, Ohio, as well as Roger Beck of Georgia.

The lawsuit, which was filed by attorneys Dean Henry of Behm & Henry LLC and Thomas J. Lee of Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP in Seneca County Common Pleas Court on behalf of Tiffin Westgate Ltd., seeks to halt construction of the new car wash and remove anything currently there.

The lawsuit alleges Westgate would suffer “impaired sight lines, increased traffic problems, decreased parking availability, and an increased difficulty enforcing its right to control, via its right of consent, the construction of specific types of buildings and businesses with frontage along West Market Street.”

According to the lawsuit, Magic Tunnel Midwest and Mr. Beck had not received nor sought Westgate’s consent prior to constructing the building on the parcel.
