That is the main layout right off 224 and right on the I-76 Turnpike Between Raccoon and Tippecanoe. Or Route 11 and I-76.

Here is some info from the Youngstown Vindicator and the groups site @ www.westfordlife.com
450 Residential Units
77 Villas
78 Condos
64 HIGH RISE Condos
Around 231 Single Family Homes.

Here is a clearer view via ROUTE 224 (below)

This all and all will pump 3.4 million into the cash striken Mahoning County via Taxes.


This Company is trying to bring a FLORIDA Like Community To a Great Developing Township.

Finally someone is putting a Golf Course in a Lifestyle Center.  Actually, this place looks like a country club more however.  The placement of those towers is awesome.  Really, that does remind me of a Florida developement.  IMO, Florida has some of the greatest developement.

This is going to be great for the county.

Lets see around 450 Total Units. Lets say most of which will have 2 people and some even more. There will be upwards of 1,000 people living in this development alone. That should continue to stabilize Mahoning Counties population and make Canfield at around 10,000....

YMHA considers new housing units
Friday, July 29, 2005
By SEAN BARRON
VINDICATOR STAFF WRITER


YOUNGSTOWN — Within the next few weeks, a section of Wirt Street on the city's North Side could start receiving a face-lift.

Board members discussed at Thursday's Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority meeting 30 homeowner units that are slated to be built near the Westlake housing project. They will be part of Arlington Heights, a new section that will replace 289 units at Westlake that were demolished, said Eugenia C. Atkinson, MHA's executive director.

YMHA Breaks Ground for Homes at Arlington Heights
Oct 12, 2005 8:40 a.m.
By George Nelson


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- The city’s near North Side, for years synonymous with crime, drugs and other urban problems, took another step away from its troubled history Tuesday morning with a ground-breaking ceremony at 750 Park Ave. for the new Homes at Arlington Heights, a planned development of 30 new homes.

The barracks-style housing that comprised the old Westlake Terrace housing projects, Eugenia Atkinson said, made it difficult for residents to come in and out of the community.

Downtown revitalization plan ready
Ordinances will concern diagonal parking, residential use and business incentives.

By PETER H. MILLIKEN
VINDICATOR TRUMBULL STAFF


WARREN — The city's first comprehensive downtown revitalization plan recommends continued city safety and health code enforcement to eliminate blight in the residential area on downtown's northern fringe.

It also recommends better use of the community reinvestment area — a mechanism for tax abatements — for improvements, explained Anthony Iannucci Jr., director of the Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corp., which coordinated the plan's development.

The locally generated master plan is to be unveiled at a public forum at 6 p.m. Monday at the Comfort Inn on Courthouse Square. This is a "very important meeting for the future of this city," Mayor Michael O'Brien said.

The plan, titled "Warren G.R.O.W.s," stands for Grassroots Revitalization of Warren and has been a year in the making by more than 70 volunteers. It says the downtown revival effort "has to be comprehensive. In other words, just a design plan is not sufficient," said Iannucci.

From the Warren Tribune Chronicle:


Business leaders discuss plan
By AMY McCULLOUGH
Tribune Chronicle


WARREN - The general reaction from city business owners following the fourth downtown revitalization plan since 1980 appears to be an overwhelming "cautious'' enthusiasm.

Although some business owners, mostly those involved with the planning process itself, are dropping the cautious and jumping full throttle into the enthusiastic role.
For example, Thomas O. Duma, owner of Thom Duma Fine Jewelers and a member of Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corp. Economic Restructuring Committee, repeatedly was referred to as the "cheerleader'' of the group.

The excitement in his voice reverberated through the banquet hall in the Comfort Inn Jan. 30 as members of the four committees presented their 15 goals and 74 business strategies that encompass Warren GROWS - Grassroots Revitalization of Warren.

But his excitement was catching.

Even some of the business owners who once doubted the successful follow-through of any Warren plan, seemed to have walked away from the meeting with renewed hope for downtown.

Music hall tied to revitalization
By AMY McCULLOUGH
Tribune Chronicle


WARREN - Mayor Michael J. O'Brien said the W.D. Packard Music Hall and Convention Center might be just the thing needed to kickstart the success of the latest downtown revitalization plan.

Christopher Stephenson, music hall director, said he expects an 11 percent increase in revenue in 2005 from the year before, saying the annual report should be complete in about a month. Although in August the music hall was seeing an overall revenue increase of about 55 percent and a 28 percent increase in venue usage, the numbers still are promising for a city trying to stop the cycle of businesses coming and going downtown.

"It kind of evened out over time, but business is strong, and we are doing quite a bit better than what's been done in the past,'' Stephenson said, adding that the renovations to the dressing room and bathrooms, which are slated for completion in about a month, should bring in even more business.

The municipal auditorium and theater was awarded a $100,000 state capital appropriation with the help of Rep. Randy Law, R-Warren.

Gov. Bob Taft signed the bill Feb. 3.

Mayor wants $1 million to eradicate blight
Tuesday, February 28, 2006
Associated Press

Youngstown- The mayor, looking at a large surplus, wants to use $1 million to speed up plans to demolish blighted areas, work that he says is critical to revitalize the city.

Mayor Jay Williams said about 750 houses and 100 commercial sites are on the city's list of properties that need to be demolished.

If City Council approves the allocation, it would be the largest amount Youngstown has dedicated to demolition. The council, which passed a quarterly budget to start the year, plans to approve the 2006 budget by next month.

Trust me. You tour the south side and much of the rest of the town there are tons of buildings that caught fire by arson or just caught fire and are still standing today.

This is a great plan by MAYOR JAY WILLIAMS!

Yeah, I've seen.  It's going to take tons of money to take down all of the abandoned houses.  I'm a bit surprised by the 100 commercial structures though.  When they are done, I would think that Youngstown's commercial streets will be almost entirely vacant lots.  It's not as if Youngstown has that many commercial structures left.

Mahoning Avenue
Belmont Avenue
McGuffey
South Ave.
Market Street

Those are the 5 corridors into the downtown and where most of the commercial structures are, much of those streets are structurally in good shape.

YOUNGSTOWN — The city's board of control approved a $69,600 contract for a Campbell company to demolish 25 houses on the northeast side of town as part of its effort to take down about 300 dilapidated structures this year.

Pro Quality also received a $65,000 contract last week to demolish 25 abandoned houses on the city's South Side.

CITY HALL REPORTER


YOUNGSTOWN — As the city works to improve its appearance by demolishing blighted structures, one of the nation's largest corporations is standing in its way, says city Finance Director David Bozanich.

General Electric owns the former Youngstown Lamp Plant, a 140,000-square-foot brick building on Market Street that the company closed in 1985. About 500 people worked at the plant before it closed.

"It's on a gateway street to downtown, and the building is in deplorable condition," Bozanich said. "It's an eyesore. It's an ugly building."
