Youngstown Working to Improve Neighborhoods - WFMJ

Youngstown officials met Wednesday in the first of a series of meetings to create plans to improve neighborhoods.

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation has already gathered and analyzed data about the city's neighborhoods.

The second phase of their plan is to now talk to residents about what they think needs to be done to improve their area.

"If there are issues, whatever those issues might be, street conditions, vacant homes; we also want to hear what people's priorities are for the things that are the most important, particularly to improve their neighborhoods and to make things better," said Ian Beniston, deputy director Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation.

Wednesday's meeting discussed improvements to the Rocky Ridge neighborhood and Youngstown's west side.

YNDC will be meeting with Youngstown neighborhoods throughout the month of March.
