Youngstown business district working to build a better downtown

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Stakeholders in the downtown Youngstown business district are launching a new initiative for building a better Youngstown.

A news conference was the kick-off for DBAY, the Downtown Business Alliance of Youngstown. The group's goal is a collaborative effort to improve the image and vitality of downtown.

"What we hope to do in the next six weeks is put together a general meeting of interested parties downtown, detail more of the things we want to accomplish, some of the projects we have in mind and get more members involved," said Richard Hahn, President of Keynote Media Group and a member of the DBAY steering committee.

The group wants to retain and attract businesses and improve the quality of life for people who live, work and visit downtown.
