A ribbon cutting took place on some new homes that will be built in Struthers.
These will be the first new homes in that city in around 30 years.
 A ribbon is cut for the new Mary Lou Durick Estates on Center Street in Struthers.
Bob Durick who owns Uncle Joe's Storage in that city, plus four other locations named that business after his dad, so he wanted to honor his mom with this housing development saying she was a wonderful wife to his dad and a great mom to a dentist, and two doctors.
"Now we got this property in honor of my mother. Mom and Dad you know I miss you guys. Look down and hopefully, we have some good luck here. So this is what's going to happen. The lots are going to be for sale. We will also build a spec house here real soon. As soon as we get contractors lined up," Durick said. 
 His mom who passed on in 2017 whose maiden name is Toto grew up just a street over on Ridgeway and his grandfather who lived to 104 attended the school that was once on the property. The storage locations were in his dad's name for about ten years before he also passed on in 2017.
Durick wants to improve the neighborhood and the city he grew up in and loves! 
"it's going to be great. You don't see a lot of people developing in this town," Durick said.
The seven lots or opportunities for homes on Center Street and Ridgeway are for sale from Frank Clinton with Howard Hanna in Poland.
They are expected to be in $200,000. plus range. 
"The plans we have been working on have been Ranches with a nice open floor plan, three bedrooms, two baths, with an attached garage, nice size yard, and extra storage," Frank Clinton, CRS, RRS, with Howard Hanna in Poland said. 
The Struthers Mayor says this will add tax base, and help support the school system, at a time when there are a lot of great things going on in the city.  
"We want people to know this is the area you want to live. This is the up-and-coming city for the area," Mayor Catherine Cercone Miller added.
