YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- The Youngstown 2010 Plan will be presented to the public on Jan. 27, according to Jay Williams, city community development director. The event, titled "Unveiling The Plan," will be held at Stambaugh Auditorium, he said.

A partnership between The City of Youngstown and Youngstown State University, the Youngstown 2010 initiative held a series of meetings over the last two years to give citizens the opportunity to express their concerns, hopes and vision for the future of the city, Williams said. A citywide plan then was developed to lay out the foundation for future policies and plans and listing specific goals and projects. The goals, policies and plans will guide the city in making decisions, he noted.

Although the plan has been laid out, the public's participation remains crucial to its success, Williams emphasized. "This event will help shape not just Youngstown, but the entire Mahoning Valley," he said.

"Unveiling The Plan" begins at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
