From the 11/1/06 Warren Tribune Chronicle:


Downtown demos begin
By The Tribune Chronicle

WARREN — The blighted structure brought down by YoHo Excavating Tuesday may be the first in a series of downtown demolitions.

The structure at 279 E. Market St. was ruined by fire about a year ago, but because it sits on a small parcel of land, it may be difficult to bring in new developers.

Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corp. Director Anthony Iannucci said the organization is looking at other property in the area with the hopes of creating a larger parcel to market.

‘‘It relates directly as we talk about development in the downtown area. Anytime we can remove a blighted property and have a site for development that’s a plus,’’ Iannucci said.

Iannucci said the first priority was demolishing the structure, which has become a safety hazard.

The former Jackson’s Lounge, another vacant structure sitting next door to the WRAP property, is one Mayor Michael J. O’Brien said he would like to see torn down.

O’Brien said there are other parcels, many of which have different owners, just north of the building that WRAP is hoping to secure.

‘‘It’s another piece of the downtown revitalization process. I would hope that other building owners will cooperate in the same fashion as those owners did with the most recent demolition project,’’ the mayor said.

Business perks lauded
By AMY McCULLOUGH Tribune Chronicle

WARREN — Businesses looking to locate in downtown Warren soon will have a group of incentives that could save them thousands of dollars while helping the city achieve its revitalization goals.

Warren GROWS, a group of active city volunteers working to revitalize the Central Business District, presented a working plan of eight business incentives to City Council Thursday, which are based on an employment and investment formula that applies equally to large and small companies.

The formula looks at the number of new employees, investment in real property improvements, investment in new equipment and inventory, amount of new payroll, investment in real property purchase, and public sector financing/assistance. It then awards points for each of those categories, which is then converted to percentages to be applied to different incentive packages.

Companies can receive a minimum of 20 percent and a maximum of 97 percent in incentives for their business, according to the plan’s draft.

Three Urban Ohio-ers were students who took part in this, including yours truly, but I do not go to Kent.
All-in-all, it was a very interesting weekend... and there was way to much food.
The architect that funded a big part of charrette sort of had his own ideas on how things should be (he is an architect after all) but making people aware of the possibilities - and seeing their faces light up as they 'saw the light' - was nice.

Seriously.
That place is crazy. I have never seen so many furniture stores in one concentrated area in my life. And all the signs! For those who have never been there, think of Brookpark road aon a bad acid trip. Their zoning actually says any sign up to 200 sq ft can be erected as long as it is not offensive or immoral. I wish i had the picture one of my fellow student took of the giant Ambiance billboard, or Elmo's Bra and Girdle, or the giant neon Bud Light sign

The historic district is nice and there is great potential if their one train track is vacated. The park was nice too.

Heritage Ohio rejects bid for recognition
The Warren GROWs project manager announced his resignation.

By AMANDA GARRETT
VINDICATOR TRUMBULL STAFF


WARREN — Two downtown redevelopment agencies were notified Friday that their bid to make Warren a nationally recognized historical community has not succeeded — at least for this year.

Warren GROWs (Grassroots Revitalization of Warren) — an umbrella organization of the Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corp. — filed an application last month with Heritage Ohio to become a Main Street Community.

Through financial grants and strategic planning, the Main Street program helps Ohio communities preserve historic sites while bringing new businesses into the community.

Anthony Iannucci, the WRAP executive director, said he was disappointed but not deterred by Heritage Ohio's decision. During the 10 years the program has been in operation, only 32 Ohio communities have been accepted, Iannucci said.

From the American Planning Association:

'Youngstown 2010' City Vision and Plan Honored with National Planning Award for Public Outreach

WASHINGTON, DC –  At a public meeting in 2002, Jay Williams, who was then the director of Youngstown, Ohio's Community Development Department, called on more than 1,200 residents to embrace and own the city's new vision for the future: Youngstown 2010. It could very well be the city's last chance, he said, to begin reversing decades of population losses, economic declines, and increases in crime. The message was heard. Three years later, Williams had become mayor of Youngstown and residents had gone from supporting the Youngstown 2010 vision and developing the Youngstown 2010 comprehensive plan to embarking upon a city- and region-wide action and implementation plan.

Building public support for the Youngstown 2010 vision and comprehensive plan involved a far-reaching marketing and public education campaign. For this effort, Youngstown has been named recipient of the American Planning Association (APA) 2007 National Planning Excellence Award for Public Outreach.

"Youngstown has shown how to use the planning process to galvanize citizens to heed a call to action and take concrete steps towards saving their future," said Carol Rhea, AICP, chair of the APA Awards Committee. "From radio, newspaper and television coverage, to billboards, t-shirts and balloons, city officials left no stone unturned in their public outreach campaign," Rhea said.

The city's public outreach efforts involving Youngstown 2010 will be recognized at APA's National Planning Conference during a luncheon ceremony on April 17, 2007, in Philadelphia. A 30-minute video about all of APA's 2007 National Planning Excellence, Achievement, and Leadership Awards recipients will be shown at the luncheon. Also, the accomplishments of Youngstown and the 13 other 2007 awardees will be highlighted in the April 2007 issue of Planning magazine and on the APA website, www.planning.org.

"For a successful planning process it's essential to maintain a marketing strategy with an educational component," said Anthony Kobak, chief planner with Youngstown's Planning Department and Project Manager for Youngstown 2010.

The city's outreach efforts, in partnership with Youngstown State University, have been highly effective, attracting more than 5,000 people to participate in the city visioning and planning process since 2002. For example, 1,400 people attended the Youngstown 2010 kick-off vision meeting in 2002, and 1,300 people attended the Youngstown 2010 plan meeting in 2005.

To maintain momentum for its public outreach efforts, the city is calling on residents to get involved with implementing the plan at the same time it is launching a national advertising campaign to encourage new residents and businesses to move to Youngstown. Additional information is available online at www.youngstown2010.com.

For a list of all of the APA 2007 National Planning Excellence, Achievement, and Leadership Award recipients, visit www.planning.org/newsreleases/2006/ftp121506.htm. APA's National Planning Awards, considered by U.S. planners to be the profession's highest honor, is a tradition established more than 50 years ago to recognize outstanding community plans, planning programs and initiatives, public education efforts, and individuals for their leadership on planning issues.
