Neighborhood Impact Area Program

The City of Youngstown Code Enforcement and Blight Remediation Department has introduced the "Neighborhood Impact Area" program, a new tool for neighborhood improvement. This is a targeted, multifaceted, coordinated, and transparent effort, involving the Departments of Public Works, Code Enforcement, Community Police, Street, Health, and Parks and Recreation.

A Neighborhood Impact Area (NIA) comprises a targeted, 3 to 4 block area of the City. For a scheduled and advertised 2 week period, multiple departments will converge upon the NIA to perform a number of services and address issues, such as:

  • Property code enforcement
  • Grass cutting
  • Demolition
  • Street conditions
  • Street tree conditions
  • Traffic sign and signal issues
  • Water and waste water infrastructure
  • Litter control
  • Public health concerns
  • Community Police public outreach
  • Quality of life issues

Upon completion of the scheduled 2 week period, the services and activities performed in that NIA will be documented in a Departmental News story on the City website on the Home page and the Property Code Enforcement & Demolition page (see link below).

Every 5 to 6 weeks, a NIA will be selected in a given City ward, with input from that ward's Councilperson. NIA's will be rotated by ward. Once all wards have had a completed NIA, the rotation will begin again with newly designated NIA's. A designated NIA will be advertised with signage in that area, 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the scheduled work, as well as a posted entry in the City website calendar.
