Mooney staying put in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN

Cardinal Mooney High School will stay on the Youngstown’s South Side, Bishop George V. Murry announced today.

In a news release, Bishop Murry said having the school stay in its present location is the best way for it to meet its message of education and community service. A group of alumni had asked the Diocese of Youngstown to study relocating the school to another part of Mahoning County where the population is growing.

Murry said the building will undergo renovations, and noted that one of the factors in his decision is that it is cheaper to renovate the existing school than build a new one.

City Councilwoman Janet Tarpley, who represents the city’s 6th Ward, where the school is located, said she is excited the school is staying. She called it one of the keys to revitalizing that part of the ward.

While in some ways this decision is admirable, it was a poor decision for the long term. Youngstown continues to shrink and the suburbs continue to grow. There are a lot of families that just won't go to an area they consider to be unsafe.

Why not talk to the city about obtaining one of the new schools they are closing like volney?
