RAVENNA TWP. — A commercial building under construction along state Route 59 suffered a setback during last weekend’s snowstorm.

Owner Ted Wynn, who also owns the Cost U Less Storage facility and operates it with his granddaughter, said he believes it was the weight of the snow that fell during the winter storm that led to the collapse of about 10 or 11 trusses.

“It’s still under construction, and the walls aren’t up,” he said. “I just know I’ve got to put the trusses back together and move on. It’s a bad situation. I’m not happy about it. It’s just me and my kid putting it up.”

Jim DiPaola, Ravenna Township zoning inspector, said the structure has been under construction for more than two years. Wynn’s is the only commercial building he can remember being built by the property owner.

“The others have been built by contractors,” DiPaola said. “When you’re doing it yourself, this is a huge setback.”

Wynn said he had been cleared to install plumbing before a portion of the roof caved in but added he can’t do any plumbing work because of the cold temperature.

He estimated he’s got verbal commitments for about two-thirds of the units in the facility once it’s completed, which will probably be near the end of the year.

“I’ve got some people interested in it,” he said, adding a hair salon, a gun shop, a restaurant and carpet store are interested in moving into the new building.
