YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The mission of the Downtown Youngstown Partnership is to bring the community together by attracting and retaining business and pride in the area.
The first community-based event was held Wednesday night at the Oh Wow! Children’s Center.
The partnership aims to unite downtown business owners and residents. The group plans to meet each month to discuss issues stakeholders face downtown and community improvement projects.
“The goal is to find the problems, create solutions and implement them. So my hope for this group is that they take in small projects here and there…and create this bigger picture of what downtown could be,” said Director of Downtown Events Mike McGiffin.
The partnership, organized in part by Youngstown Cityscape, is open to residents, business owners and those who live and work downtown.
