Neighborhood Planning Meetings Kickoff

Thursday, February 27, 2014

The City of Youngstown and YNDC hosted the first of a series of neighborhood planning meetings last night at the monthly Rocky Ridge neighborhood meeting.

Residents from neighborhoods across the west side attended the meeting and provided valuable feedback about challenges affecting their neighborhoods as well as the assets from which to build.

This meeting was the first of 9 meetings that will be held across the city in order to provide residents with information from the Neighborhood Conditions Report and to gather critical input that will be used to create a series of specific, action-oriented citywide recommendations for the improvement of services. The schedule of public meetings is listed below.
