Mayor John McNally would like to see a grocery store and pharmacy go into the former Bottom Dollar Food store on Glenwood Avenue, he said today.

On Friday afternoon, over a short two block stretch of Elm Street between Madison and Park avenues in Youngstown, men were on ladders, sidewalks were being cleaned and crosswalks created with duct tape, all in preparation for the weekend’s unveiling of a new group, North of Madison Avenue Association, or NOMA.

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp. and the Raymond John Wean Foundation won three of the seven statewide awards given by the Ohio Community Development Corp. Association at its annual conference in Kent.

The city has come to an agreement with ALDI Inc. for the grocery chain to donate the former Bottom Dollar Food store property on Glenwood Avenue to the municipality.

The city’s board of control hired Gene Fehr, a former Mahoning County Common Pleas Court magistrate, to serve as the speed-enforcement hearing officer for $95 an hour.
