City council to discuss planner position April 3


Youngstown City Council will make a vague idea a reality next week when they vote on whether to begin the search for a city planner. Here’s Rachel Lundberg with the story.

The city planner position – empty since 2009 – could be filled by one person or an agency. Third Ward Councilman Nate Pinkard prefers an agency.

If we hire an agency to do the planning for the city, we might be able to get more bang for our bucks.

The Community Development Agency met Monday and voted to send the proposal before the full city council April 3.
