RRNA efforts cited as relevant to Youngstown revitalization

The Rocky Ridge Neighborhood Association was recently referenced in an article posted to the blog, Urban Current, a blog that serves communities & professionals in the United States and Europe to help them develop solutions in urban and regional policy. A reference to Rocky Ridge is even featured in the article title: “Makers, Millennials and Maple Syrup: The Future of Youngstown, Ohio.”

The Rocky Ridge Neighbors were praised for their Maple Syrup efforts as well as a win at the community micro-granting dinner, Youngstown SOUP, in July-the funds from which will be going toward another community fundraising project.

Way to go, Rocky Ridge Neighbors!
