Sheridan Moving Forward on Gallagher, Restaurant Plans
By George Nelson | May 26, 2017

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Businessman Ryan Sheridan says he will move forward with plans to renovate the Gallagher Building downtown, whether or not the state of Ohio approves extending historic preservation tax credits associated with the project.
...
Sheridan also said he would start taking bids from contractors next week for a restaurant he plans to open on the first floor of the Wick Building.

Bids will be due June 5 for The Cove, a restaurant with what he described as an “industrial coastal” theme. The restaurant will open in September, he said.

Smarts Celebrates Transition into New Home
By George Nelson | June 2, 2017

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Reporters had just been handed the press release that Students Motivated by the Arts had reached its goal set a year ago of raising $750,000 when Becky Keck informed them she had something to add.

They were gathered on the first floor of the Ohio One Building to view Smarts’ new downtown home.

A few minutes earlier, Jan Strasfeld, executive director of the Youngstown Foundation, had asked Keck, “Did I tell you yet?”

Then she told Keck, executive director of Smarts, that the foundation’s Monday Musical Fund had contributed $17,000 to support the Yamaha Piano Lab in its new home, adding that sum to the total donated.

Mahoning Valley begins slow climb back
Since hitting 'bottom,' region has diversified its business bases
By RACHEL ABBEY MCCAFFERTY   

What comes to mind when someone says the Mahoning Valley?

The region's post-industrial downfall? Its shifting political alliances? The rampant opioid epidemic?

Those are all valid stories about the region. But, despite what national media coverage might lead you to believe, they're not the only stories.

The region still faces plenty of challenges, but in both Youngstown and Warren, efforts to revitalize the cities at the heart of the Mahoning Valley are underway, led by entrepreneurs opening new businesses and renovating buildings, and by neighborhood development corporations cleaning up blight.

It's taken a long time for the region to even consider rebuilding after its major manufacturing base left. After "Black Monday" in 1977, when Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co. announced thousands of layoffs, the city of Warren didn't fall into a depression overnight. It was more "gradual," said Michael D. Keys, community development director for Warren.

Restored statues returning to Mahoning Courthouse roof

Published: Fri, June 9, 2017 @ 12:08 a.m.
By Peter H. Millikenmilliken@vindy.com

YOUNGSTOWN

The restored copper statues are tentatively scheduled to be returned to the Mahoning County Courthouse roof June 27, James Fortunato, county purchasing director, told the county commissioners Thursday.

Plans call for the statues to be on public display in front of the courthouse from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day before they are hoisted to their pedestal atop the 106-year-old building, which is now under a $6 million restoration, he said.

So, today is the day!

I would have gotten some photos at lunch, but it was cloudy.  Thankfully, a co-worker was told to go over and take some photos earlier this morning, when it was still sunny.
