Youngstown City Council passed an ordinance Wednesday evening to authorize the board of control to purchase a historic property in Mill Creek Metroparks.

The property is located at 900 Old Furnace Road is over 100 years old and has been vacant for around 20 years.

The purchase was made for one dollar.

The board of control will then be authorized to transfer the property to the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation for the remodeling of the long-vacant and dilapidated residence.

Post-renovation, the plan is to sell the property or rent the location out.
