It's happening downtown

YOUNGSTOWN — People dining in restaurants, eating ice cream outside, listening to musicians, bustling into sporting events: “It’s happening here!”

That’s the message of two videos unveiled this morning at the Chevrolet Centre, promoting downtown.

The videos — a one-minute spot that will show at the center during events, and a 30 second spot the city hopes that local television stations run as a public service announcement — show activities in downtown, after 5 p.m.

“A vibrant core is one of the main goals of the Youngstown 2010 plan,” said William D’Avignon, director of the city’s Community Development Agency.

The idea is to show people who might not be aware of it, the revitalization the downtown has realized in the last 10 years and the activities available, he said.
