Flood-prone four-plex in Campbell to be razed



Published: Tue, November 19, 2013 @ 4:45 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Commissioners of the Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority voted to demolish a 1965-vintage building containing four apartments at the authority’s Kirwan Homes in Campbell.

The building, known as Building 22, is on Murray Avenue and has been vacant for several years.

The commissioners authorized the demolition today because the building is in a low, flood-prone location on a hillside, said Lester Walker, YMHA project manager.

“We just can’t keep tenants in and keep water out,” he said. “We’re going to take it down and just make it into a green space.”

Kirwan, which is named for the late longtime Mahoning Valley U.S. Rep. Michael Kirwan, has 31 buildings, each with four apartments.
