It will only go down to the dam in Lowellville - unless they get that one removed. I thought it was already approved?

Poland? It's actually Springfield Twp. south of Western Reserve Rd.

I thought North Elementary was going to close.

Have you had to park in Chicago lately? or Boston? (Both pretty successful cities. Both license their central business district parking enterprises.) Most of the people who comment on this venue will hate whatever the city does, even if it is trying to make their lives easier.

Designed to fail.We have a great engineering school at YSU - the graduates leave the area and go to cities where things like this don't happen. Maybe we should think about keeping some of them around to help design projects correctly.

Are those places that have "skill games" legal or not?

Indianola Rd. between South Ave & Southern Blvd is still the worst road in this part of the county. Youngstown has patched their potholes better. Incorporating may be the way to go but the township residents would then have to pull a full share of the weight and would lose some of the free rides they now get from the County. The "City" of Boardman would then be able to impose an income tax. (And they'll use the police and fire depts. to pass the law just like they did in Youngstown)As it stands all of the densely populated townships in our valley are a drain on the economy - everybody is paying to keep them afloat. But the residents of Boardman, Austintown, Liberty, etc. get to save a few dollars in taxes. If we were really serious about government being more efficient and effective we need to be talking about consolidation - and not just 911 services or combining building or health departments. We need a county-wide police and fire department. The best school districts in the country are county-wide school districts in Maryland, Virginia and Florida. If the street and road departments in the county could get together and share their purchasing power we could save millions and the condition of our roads would improve. All-in-all we would be safer, better educated and more successful in the global economy.

We have the best government money can buy. It is not what the founding fathers had in mind.

Or, some may say the area deteriorated as the dealerships left. Urban sprawl is bad for everybody but we keep on doing it.
