YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — City residents have had a chance to voice their opinion about issues and changes they would like to see around the city through a series of neighborhood meetings.

Tuesday was the 10th and final neighborhood meeting, where data and trends were outlined in a neighborhood conditions report.

Ian Beniston with the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation said there were a variety of responses from people in different parts of the city. Now they will take the data they have collected and present it to city leaders.

Some of the biggest concerns include safety and infrastructure.

“One neighborhood may need a demolition strategy while another neighborhood that has a higher level of stability might need a targeted code enforcement strategy,” Beninston said.

The group plans to meet with people around the community again after they present the data. It is expected some changes may start taking place later this year.
