City commission wants comprehensive parks plan

YOUNGSTOWN

City council gave permission today for the park and recreation commission to seek proposals from firms to develop a comprehensive plan for Youngstown’s park system.

What is uncertain is when — or even if — a firm would be selected.

“Nothing is being spent,” said Councilman Paul Drennen, D-5th and chairman of the legislative body’s park and playgrounds committee. “Council will need to approve allocating the money and it won’t happen right away.”

The legislation “is not to enter into a contract, but to find out what will be the cost [of a study] and how to proceed,” Drennen said.

What could cause a delay or not moving ahead with selecting a firm for a park plan, council members say, is the city hiring an agency to provide overall planning services.

A firm to handle planning should be hired by June or July, city officials say.
