The Incredible Shrinking City

Posted Tuesday, May 29, 2007

Youngstown's urban redevelopment plan is attracting a lot of attention, particularly among other cities with lagging post industrial economies. Tuesday morning, we'll speak with some of the civic leaders who, rather than fighting a future as a small city, are embracing it. It's a vision where a neighborhood with a 60% vacancy rate isn't a problem - it's an asset. Join us at nine for the Incredible Shrinking City on The Sound of Ideas.
