Austintown racino construction on schedule, construction company volunteers in Youngstown

Posted: Updated:

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - Construction on the racino being built here will be able to continue through the winter as long as the structure goes up as planned.

"We're going to be starting structural steel about mid-September, then the structure will actually be going up," says Randy Painter, the racino project executive for Turner Construction. "We hope to be enclosed by about December 15."

Being enclosed will allow for work to continue through the winter months.

Painter says work on Hollywood Gaming at the Mahoning Valley Race Course is proceeding on schedule.

Half-a-million cubic yards of soil and construction materials have been moved to the property recently where construction on the club house will begin soon.

Painter and other executives with Turner were in Youngstown over the weekend as part of a special community project.

"Our general manager was out here from Cleveland and our account executive from Kansas City actually stayed over," Painter says.

More than a dozen volunteers from the New York-based company spent an entire day repairing, painting and landscaping the home of Terresa Moyer on Brentwood Avenue.

A senior citizen, Moyer could not afford and was unable to do the work herself.

"The fact that they were willing to come out here and donate their time off on a Saturday after they worked all week getting all the supplies and materials," says Jack Daugherty with the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp.

Home Depot and Sherwin Williams also made donations for the project.
