Warren hopes to bring more people to Market Square with new alleyway

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

An alleyway of sorts is now open in an effort to bring more people to downtown Warren.

The shortcut connects customers from the parking deck near Grohl Alley to Market Square.

The city donated $80,000 to this public-private partnership while local business owner Paul Clouser donated the space.

"Once the amphitheater opened up, I think that was the turning point and ever since then it has just grown and grown. At one point, I think there was less than 50 percent occupancy on the square. We're almost at 100 percent now," Clouser said.

The shortcut also contains retail space. The Sweet Spot by Shirley will be leasing one of the storefronts.
