Youngstown Residents Invited to Green Infrastructure Workshops - The Business Journal


Fresh Coast Communities and The Colony Youngstown are hosting over a dozen workshops from March to July across Youngstown to educate residents about nature-based approaches to manage stormwater, called “green infrastructure” and gather community input to prioritize designs and location.
