In other opinionated news, I have to admit the names that are used for these city planning programs in Youngstown are very inventive and savvy.
"Grounds for Change" - the regional land bank project
"Lien Forward Ohio" - the regional entity making unproductive land productive
"Rollin' on the River" - the mahoning river corridor redevelopment project
"Lots of Green" - the YNDC lot remediation project
and this gem from the recent Regional Learning Network conference:
"Community Organizing: Going Wide and Going Deep"
the big question: which one to choose - wide or deep?
Amit has the answer.
