Community Development Success in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Over 200 community development professionals from across Ohio and the region gathered at the DeYor Performing Arts Center for the 37th annual conference of the Ohio CDC Association.

Keynote speaker Evelyn Burnett, a Youngstown native, and co-founder and CEO of ThirdSpace Action discussed the role of community development.

“It’s not just about the physical development. It’s not about restoring facades. It could be the role of a CDC to introduce a life-long resident or reintroduce a life-long resident to their city,” Burnett says.
