Ryan, Sammarone to formally open 82-unit YMHA apartments Tuesday


A ribbon-cutting and open house will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at 263 DuPont St. for the Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority’s newly-renovated, 82-unit Brier Hill Annex apartment community. U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan and Mayor Charles Sammarone will be among the speakers. The first residents moved May 17 into the complex, which had been closed for a year for the $10 million renovation designed to turn the complex into a green, energy-efficient community.

The facts don't lie. When people have nothing at stake and get everything free they'll destroy it like the animals they are.

Ever see any really upstanding and nice Section 8s? No, becasue when they ruin those whitey will just build new ones.

Rally If these people really wanted to have dignity and money to spend . They would get a job and go to work. Save up and buy their own homes . But that will never happen as long as they get everythng for free from the Gov't. And Little Timmy is there only to get votes and nothing else, he will have his 5 minutes in the spotlight. Then he will diappear until just before the elections.

Don't know what it will look like in a year but the amount of money being spent on mlk {former westlake} is incrediable. They had a hell of a time tearing down the old buildings because of the way they were built. I am sure the replacement housing that is going up won't stand the test of time. Are we providing simple housing for people that need a home till they get on their feet or are we trying to bring a litle poland and canfield flavor to the north side of youngstown. Working everyday and trying to pay taxes and help where and when I can is all I can do. But to see federal dollars spent on projects like this make me wonder why. Plenty of houses could have been renavated for 22 million dollars. Neighborhoods could have been saved . By building one development you have made one corner of the city bright while ignoring all the other blight.

$10 million dollars for 82 units is $122,000 per unit. No wonder our country is broke.

Sadly, I think georgejeanie is right on this one. There were some nice single family homes built recently on the lower South side around Breaden/Carroll/Falls area and within a year, several looked like they needed to be torn down. Windows were smashed, gutters were gone, high grass and a $60,000 decked out Escalade in the driveway.
