City demolition dollars stretched
By JOE GORMAN Tribune Chronicle

YOUNGSTOWN — Competition among contractors is stretching the city’s demolition dollars, allowing them to far surpass the number of structures they knocked down last year.

Deputy Director of Public Works Carmen Congolose said Thursday that the city has 150 homes under contract to be demolished this year and have knocked down 125 themselves, 75 by the Street Department and another 50 that have been ordered as emergency demolitions.

Diagonal parking hits snag
By AMY McCULLOUGH Tribune Chronicle

WARREN — It appears the effort to get diagonal parking downtown has switched directions once again after the results of a third parking study in three years were released Monday.

A frustrated Jim Cicchillo, former City Council member and downtown property owner, stormed out of the public meeting after he said it became apparent the much anticipated diagonal parking was not going to happen.

‘‘If you want to have redevelopment in downtown Warren, you better do something,’’ Cicchillo said. ‘‘If you want a freeway like we’ve had for the last 25 years, that’s fine. I’m done being sick over that.’’

The Warren City Board of Control hired Burgess & Niple Inc. on May 10 to conduct a capacity analysis study and ‘‘determine the operation effects of converting the existing parallel parking to diagonal parking.’’

Jul 26, 2006 7:27 a.m.
By Dennis LaRue


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- The proposal to rehabilitate the Kress Building downtown and convert it into a sports museum got a boost Tuesday when the downtown CIC granted backers a 90-day period of exclusivity so they can assess whether $3 million in funds can be raised.

Commercial buildings to see wrecking ball
By JOE GORMAN Tribune Chronicle

YOUNGSTOWN — Of Mike Damiano’s 29 years working for the city, this year might be the best thanks to this year’s aggressive demolition program.

Extra money in the budget this year is allowing Damiano, who heads up demolition for the city, to knock down more vacant commercial structures than normal. Usually, he said, there are only one or two that are demolished, but he has already three this year and more are to follow.

‘‘Just to get some of these dumps down really makes the job a little more worthwhile,’’ Damiano said Wednesday.

VINDICATOR TRUMBULL STAFF


WARREN — Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corp. members are asking city council to help take the first steps to make downtown Warren a nationally recognized historic center.

WRAP director Anthony Iannucci Jr. asked city council at a caucus meeting Wednesday to pass a resolution approving the naming of Warren as a Main Street Community by Downtown Ohio Inc., which is a branch of Ohio's division of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Through Downtown Ohio, the city will also be able to seek certification as a National Main Street Center from the National Trust.

The project is being spearheaded by Warren GROWS (Grassroots Revitalization of Warren), an umbrella organization of WRAP.

Funding questions grow
By AMY McCULLOUGH Tribune Chronicle

WARREN — With nearly two-thirds of the year complete, an organization formed to help revitalize downtown Warren has collected only about a tenth of its total budget for the year.

Warren GROWS, or Grass Roots Revitalization of Warren, budgeted expenses of $250,000 this year — $181,000 for 31 specific revitalization projects and $69,000 for administrative costs. But a campaign to raise money for this year’s expenses and those in the next two years isn’t even expected to kick off until this month.

‘‘If they are collecting money, and it’s for administrative cost and they are not telling people, that’s an issue. I have not written a check and I don’t expect to until it’s separate,’’ said Patty Limperos, chairwoman of GROWS promotions and marketing committee.

Limperos and several volunteers said they did not know an administrative budget existed and believed the donations already being collected were going to Warren GROWS projects.

Council backs bid for Main Street plan
By AMY McCULLOUGH Tribune Chronicle

WARREN — Another obstacle was overcome Wednesday for the grassroots organization working to add Warren into a network of 32 other Ohio Main Street Communities for neighborhood revitalization programs.

City Council voted 9-1 Wednesday in favor of a resolution supporting the Warren GROWS bid to make Warren a Main Street city. The resolution is a requirement for Main Street applicants.

Ohio Main Street is a partnership with the National Trust Main Street Center. Although there is no money available for revitalization through the program, member communities can network with each other to work out problems and are guided to available funding sources.

Over the last eight years, almost $300 million has been invested statewide, more than 300 businesses started, 1,118 buildings rehabilitated and almost 3,000 jobs created through the program, state program officials said.
