Youngstown metro ranks in top 10 for economic-growth potential

A business publication has named the Youngstown metro area as one of the nation’s 10 best locations for economic-growth potential.

Business Facilities magazine made the list and selected the metro area, which includes Mahoning, Trumbull and Mercer (Pa.) counties, as the sixth-best site among areas with less than 450,000 employment in its July/August edition. The magazine is written for corporate site selectors.

If you wouldn't build a new house in the middle of an oil field, why would you build one in the middle of a natural gas field????????

Potential??? I guess it has the potential to be forgotten, looked over, and ignored. For all the support it has provided to a certain political party you would think that this area would be better off by now. But that's what happens when that certain political party knows that it doesn't need to do anything to improve things to keep that support.

I guess going from 1 employer to 2 is as big of a percentage jump as going from 1,000 to 2,000 when compared to a real city. That does not make for much "potential" to me.
