Upper West Side Residents Review Action Plan

Thursday, August 6, 2015

On Wednesday, August 5th, Upper West Side residents gathered at the Grace Evangelistic Temple Church on Mahoning Ave. to review the action plan for the neighborhood, which was presented by YNDC and the City of Youngstown.

The Upper West Side Action Plan outlines a strategy for dealing with each blighted property in the neighborhood, as well as recommendations for infrastructure improvement, crime reduction, and encouraging economic development along Mahoning Ave. Residents expressed concerns about specific vacant properties with issues, but also offered to help implement the goals outlined in the plan by assisting with community workdays and being part of the neighborhood action team.
