Boardman and Youngstown to discuss development districts

YOUNGSTOWN

While Austintown doesn’t want to create a joint economic development district with Youngstown for a racino under construction, the city has found a township interested in discussing the issue.

Boardman Township Administrator Jason Loree spoke last week with Youngstown Mayor Charles Sammarone about meeting to discuss the possibility of such districts in the township, both confirmed today.

Loree said he specifically wants to discuss districts for undeveloped industrial land on McClurg, Bev, Simon and Western Reserve roads.

The biggest problem in those areas is the lack of high-speed internet lines, Loree said.

State law permits cities and townships to form a JEDD to impose taxes in exchange for needed infrastructure. The income tax received by the township in those areas could be used to fund the internet lines, Loree said.
