First Garden District Action Team Meeting Held

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

On Thursday, January 15th, the first Garden District Action Team meeting was held at Fellowes' Riverside Gardens, where members began planning the initial steps to implement the Neighborhood Action Plan.

Residents, city officials, Mill Creek MetroParks, the Mahoning County Land Bank, and other community stakeholders were represented at the meeting.

The discussion focused on pursuing compliance for the Priority Properties for Code Enforcement and Demolition identified in the plan, addressing neighborhood graffiti, planning upcoming community cleanup events, and exploring the reuse potential of vacant mixed use and residential structures within neighborhood.

This is the first of a series of Neighborhood Action Teams which have been established by YNDC and the City of Youngstown to oversee the implementation of Neighborhood Action Plans. Upcoming meetings over the next two months include Pleasant Grove, Powerstown, Brownlee Woods, Crandall Park, and Rocky Ridge, and Lincoln Knolls.
