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.

'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.

Two designs will help light up downtown
The money is going only to the lighting project, the plaza director said.

By KATIE LIBECCO
VINDY.COM CORRESPONDENT


YOUNGSTOWN — Federal Plaza director Claire Maluso said she hopes selling T-shirts will accomplish two things: promote downtown and raise money to illuminate it.

The T-shirts display the Downtown Youngstown logo, which debuted last year and features the phrase "It's Happening Here." The other T-shirt design was created by Tony Trolio at Trolio's Original T-Shirts in Poland and features an artistic rendering of the city with the words, "Y-Town...It's about believing in our town." ..

Group to become separate
Warren GROWs' first efforts to become a Main Street community were rejected.

BY AMANDA GARRETT
VINDICATOR TRUMBULL STAFF


WARREN — The Warren GROWs group is taking its first steps toward becoming an independent organization.

Warren GROWs — Grassroots Revitalization of Warren — has up to now operated under the auspices of the Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corp.

But WRAP director Anthony Iannucci has filed articles of incorporation with the state to allow Warren GROWs to become a separate agency.

"The plan from the beginning was to make Warren GROWs independent," said downtown businessman Thom Duma, Warren GROWs board president. "We will celebrate our first year in operation in March and it felt like the right time to make the progression."

Warren GROWs should have its incorporation papers around the beginning of February, Iannucci said.

Warren GROWs will continue to spearhead downtown revitalization efforts, while WRAP will focus its efforts on economic redevelopment citywide, Iannucci said.

WARREN — City council members questioned Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corp. leaders about the status of economic development in Warren and WRAP's role in revitalization efforts.

During a special council meeting Tuesday, Councilman Robert L. Dean Jr. said he has been inundated with calls from concerned citizens about WRAP's role and the lack of economic development and downtown revitalization in Warren.

WRAP is an independent nonprofit organization that the city contracts for $60,000 a year to help administer loans, purchase properties and negotiate contracts, Community Development Director Michael Keys said.

City debates WRAP’s future
By AMY McCULLOUGH Tribune Chronicle

WARREN — The clock is ticking for Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corp. as City Council plans to address a controversial piece of legislation that ultimately could lead to the demise of the nonprofit agency.

Councilman Robert Dean, D-at large, said he plans to introduce an ordinance that would reappropriate the $51,250 set aside for WRAP and its economic development assistance to a contingency fund in the Community Development Department.

According to the ordinance, the money would be held in the fund ‘‘until this Council has an opportunity to re-evaluate what, if any, future relationship should exist between the City of Warren and WRAP.’’

i love and dearly miss youngstown its suburbs and the whole area

its such a small town family feel

and most people no their past

its sad to see how bad the areas have gotten especially south side because just 5 years ago they were middle class/working neighborhoods (e. boston ave)

but its good to see that ysu is doing better and downtown seems to be picking up at least a little momentum with the chev. centre and such
