WARREN

The nonprofit Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership has been awarded a $356,964 U.S. Housing and Urban Development grant to take inventory of the Warren’s 2,000 vacant residential properties and 5,000 vacant lots.

The inventory will provide a database of housing information that will help the city prioritize the steps that will follow, said Mayor Michael O’Brien.

Assessments of each parcel will “help locate the best parcels for investment in order to return land to neighborhoods in ways that are accessible, sustainable and healthy” for the community, O’Brien said.

Matt Martin, director of the one-year-old Trumbull Neighhorhood Partnership, said he believes Warren received the grant because of the large list of neighborhood groups working to improve the city’s neighborhoods.

It is also important that the neighborhood groups have now been organized through an umbrella group called the Warren Neighborhood Leadership Council, Martin said.

Trumbull County was also only the second county in Ohio to create a land bank, Martin said.
