YNDC Completes Impact Analysis of Neighborhood Action Plan Work from 2014 through 2018

Thursday, March 28, 2019

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) has completed an impact analysis of multiple factors related to neighborhood health and stability.

Neighborhood Action Plans were completed in 2014 and 2015 and the data analyzed includes 2014 and 2015 baseline data, which was compared to 2018 data. Historic data was also analyzed to review recent changes against long term trends. Key findings include: a major decrease in vacancy from 2014 to 2018, slowing of new vacancy particularly in Neighborhood Action Plan areas, decrease in crime, decrease in tax delinquency, increase in property values, and a stabilization in owner occupancy rates in some neighborhoods. The overall findings show positive change in Neighborhood Action Plan areas since implementation work by YNDC, the Mahoning County Land Bank, City of Youngstown, and neighborhood groups began.
