Campbell gets $1.9M for YS&T property cleanup

Published: Mon, May 21, 2012 @ 12:05 a.m.



By Ed Runyan



Approval of a $1.9 million Clean Ohio grant for cleanup of 40 acres of former Youngstown Sheet and Tube property brings construction of a $300 million Sherman International steel mill one step closer to reality, Campbell City Manager Jack Dill said Sunday night.

Sherman International plans to build a cold-roll coil mill on the property, which it owns northwest of the Walton Avenue bridge over the Mahoning River. It is projected to create 300 jobs.

Dill said Sherman International of Pittsburgh, which plans to supply thin-guage steel in support of the construction, automobile and HVAC industries at the mill, will be providing matching money for the project. Dill said he doesn’t know how much money.

The city manager said he believes the mill, to be called Sherman Metals Technologies, will be built, but it’s not clear how long it will take for the company to break ground.

Similar cleanups have taken a year, he said. The mill won’t be constructed until after the cleanup is done. An earlier study identified the specific cleanup work that needs to be done, Dill said.

The grant for which Campbell applied will be used to clean soil, remove asbestos and general waste, as well as demolish buildings, the Department of Development said Friday in announcing the grant.

It was one of the larger Clean Ohio awards given in Round 12 of the program, which will provide money for 11 brownfield cleanup sites. Other locations getting money are Cleveland, Dayton, Fostoria, Franklin County, Kent, Mount Vernon, Sandusky, Steubenville, Twinsburg and Xenia.

Dill said the grant is great news, especially since this may be the last round of Clean Ohio grant money to be awarded.

The Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund is a competitive statewide program that provides grants of up to $3 million to acquire property, demolish structures, conduct environmental cleanup and improve infrastructure.

Since its inception, 150 Clean Ohio projects have been awarded more than $295 million, leveraging $2.5 billion in private-sector development and creating and retaining more than 12,500 jobs, according to the Ohio Department of Development.

Hey dill
Clean up the iron city wood products on Wilson ave. Great to see them use Wilson ave as there drive way violating every zoning and legal ordinance on the books. What a joke. I would get up from your office and walk down the street. Or do your job

At the very least the government should make Sherman post a huge bond to assure that they do not leave us tax payers with a multimillion dollar bill to clean up after they leave.

Misery loves company in Campbell. Its pretty obvious some posters cannot let go of past political agendas. I dont see how this can be anything but good for the city? Its obvious you dont want any better for the city or else youd put your agendas aside. You want things to start changing in Campbell like paved streets, crime prevention, etc? Then why not be happy a company is actually coming into the city and bringing jobs and tax dollars. Fools.

The comment about Iron City is mostly valid. If a private citizen were to park his vehicles on the side of the road like the current group of tractor trailers are parked they would be ticketed in no time. Drive eastbound on Wilson Ave and you'll see just how close those trailers are to the road (and some are actually parked on it)

I heard Iron City was moving to more space in Youngstown to the old Ross Industrial Park on Albert St. that has recently been cleaned up. True?

About Iron City, I enjoy seeing them grow and work. You have to admire a trucker who can back a trailer load of pallets into the fenced yard on that narrow road. Don't they pay taxes? Isn't it better to see a working business which employs an increasing number of people than the rotting pallets that used to be there. The train tracks in Struthers cause more of an inconvenience that Iron City does. What exactly is the harm that they are causing? Who are they hurting?

Those railroad companies pay taxes too. Doesn't give them the right to stop the trains and block traffic either. Paying taxes doesn't give you a free pass on not following laws and regulations. I imagine if you tried parking a tractor trailer on the side of the road in Poland or Canfield it would be a different story. And as to the rotting pallets - they were still there yesterday when i drove by.

And one of many citizens of the paradise you call West Palm Beach, FL home......LMFAO

I have lived in West Palm Beach for a year and moved here from NY state. All you New Yorkers: DO NOT MOVE HERE!! Call this fair warning. They hate us here and make that known everywhere you go. The workplace is a joke with pays that are obscene. I was making 45.00 an hour on Long Island but was offered 12.00 for the same job. This is an "At Will" work state. They fire and hire workers in a seemingly indiscriminate way higgledeepiggledee without fair warning or within reason. Permanent jobs are almost nonexistent. This is a hustler's state.

In addition make no mistake about it this is a racist, homophobic, sexist part of the world. Blacks still live a segregated life here and are treated more than badly. The treatment is both subtle and blatant.

Crime is very high here although I have not run into any of it personally. People in houses have had problems with home invasion and theft in my neighborhood.

Security companies are made up of mostly foreign nationals and immigrants. Not a secure place to live.

The water here has had several boil water notices and fecal material has been found in it. The place is run like one of the islands. It really should be kicked out of the US and made a territory instead of a state.

"My home area is in Palm Beach Gardens.. no slums there! I also have no salary issues.. I will be at a higher rate of pay when I take over the Palm Beach County office. If Florida, in your opinion, is so bad.. go back to New York!"

I lived in Tampa/Clearwater for 13 years, San Diego, Atlanta and cruised the western Pacific when in the Navy, it's the all the same. Been there done that....No paradise anyway Skippy.....
Me from New York, never been there skippy...would love to visit some day....long overdue...
Rate of pay is going to be equal what your going to pay in housing, whether your renting or buying, so it equals all out in the end. And the weather? Personally I like the change of seasons, it's does good for the heart and soul. So I don't hate Florida but it's no paradise....comprehend?

OK here is some issues with PALM BEACH GARDENS, you see skippy, no paradise anywhere....

"I said it is one hell of alot better than Campbell Ohio! Understand, SKIPPY?"

Skippy, chill out.... Just remember it's not the place it's the person and what they make of it. People can change locations but never who they are. Understand skippy?
