‘Don’t Move, Don’t Sell Your House’ – TFG, 2017 in Youngstown

Gov. Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. Jon Husted on Tuesday announced that 2,277 blighted and vacant structures in 42 counties — including 596 projects in Mahoning County — will be demolished to pave the way for economic development and housing opportunities.

The Mahoning County Land Reutilization Corp. will demolish the lion’s share — 473 vacant, badly blighted residential properties — throughout Youngstown to stabilize the housing market and revitalize neighborhoods.

Other Mahoning County communities with lesser amounts of demolitions slated are Austintown, Beaver, Boardman, Coitsville, Poland Township, Sebring and Smith, according to the state.
