Grant supports Trumbull property owners tending to side lots

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio - An extra resource is available to those who are tending to side lots purchased through the Trumbull County Landbank.

Property owners in Warren can apply online for $250 gift cards to Lowes for tools and materials.

Huntington Bank donated $5,000 to the Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership to pay for the program.

"This is going to take a long time, and we're in it for the long haul," Matt Martin said, TNP executive director. "Ultimately it's about quality of life for residents and it's about stabilizing property, stabilizing neighborhoods one property at a time."

The Side-lot Incentive program is in its second year. Homeowners who want to expand their property can purchase land available through the landbank for a total of $500. Some have transformed vacant properties into gardens throughout the city.

"We've got a wide variety of projects, a lot more activity, more demolitions, more land, more yard expansions, so I think these gift cards will be gone in no time," Martin said.
