Lincoln Knolls Neighborhood Action Team Meets to Discuss Action Plan Implementation

Thursday, March 26, 2015

On Wednesday, March 25th, Lincoln Knolls residents, city officials, and representatives from Habitat for Humanity, the Mahoning County Land Bank, and YNDC met to discuss the implementation of the Lincoln Knolls neighborhood action plan. Attendees discussed a cooperative and strategic agenda to address property, infrastructure, and crime issues in the neighborhood. Prior revitalization efforts in Lincoln Knolls include an October 2014 community workday and vacant property cleanups by the AmeriCorps REVITALIZE Team. These efforts have resulted in 24 homes being boarded and cleaned up. In addition, YNDC has undertaken a vacant home rehabilitation and several owner occupied rehabilitation projects in Lincoln Knolls through the Paint Youngstown program. Habitat for Humanity has also recently built a new home in the neighborhood for a local family. These efforts have already shown immediate benefits in the community. Future cooperation between neighborhood residents, Lincoln Knolls Community Watch, Habitat for Humanity, YNDC, the Land Bank, and city officials will continue the commitment to the stabilization and revitalization of the Lincoln Knolls neighborhood.
