Study Aims to Boost Housing Efforts - The Vindicator

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp. expects to finalize a strategy to improve housing quality in the city in May.

“We’re in the data collection phase of putting together a housing strategy for Youngstown,” said Ian Beniston, YNDC’s executive director. “We plan to put together a strategy to improve existing housing resources and develop opportunities for new housing.”

The agency is working on two fronts to gather information, he said.

The first is a market analysis being done by Bowen National Research, a Pickerington firm. The $35,000 study is being paid by the city and the Finance Fund, a Columbus-based organization that assists underserved communities.
