Press Coverage


At the crossroads of the East Side’s main thoroughfares is the Sharonline neighborhood that represents both the one-time vision of a vibrant, growing Youngstown and the reality of the city’s decline. 

Glenwood Avenue in Youngstown will be getting a little greener this coming week. 

The visual might be comical if it weren’t so sad. Behind the disintegrating front porch roof at 226 E. Lucius Ave., on the front door hangs a sign advising that the property has been winterized.

It’s been two years since Youngstown first started using new laws to take over abandoned properties through a program called spot blight eminent domain.
