Extreme Makeover: City Edition

DowntownAnother article on Youngstown’s 2010 Plan and how it’s slowly but surely revitalizing the area, this time from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Don’t forget to watch the slideshow narrated by our Mayor, Jay Williams. Previous articles about Youngstown’s 2010 Project have appeared in the last year in The New York Times and USA Today as well.  We hadn’t seen our city’s name in a newspaper outside of our city for a couple of decades before now. It’s still a dystopic sort of city, a real mess, but it’s our glorious mess, and we’ve still got enough life left in us to try and turn it around one more time.
