The view is changing... in Downtown Youngstown Downtown amphitheater Downtown Youngstown will see its biggest transformation since the 1900s with plans to build a 3,250 seat open-air amphitheater and riverfront park. This area will serve as a companion facility to the Covelli Centre and will host events during the summer concert season, festivals and other outdoor events. Plans include a park-like setting complete with green space, trees and water features. This project will also serve as a connector to Mill Creek Park. Work is scheduled to begin in late spring 2017. GROWTH youngstown central ymca Originally built in the 1900s, the Youngstown YMCA has become a fixture of downtown Youngstown. A $5 million renovation is giving the facility more functionality and an updated look. The renovation will provide a more open and bright space, covering three-floors and replacing the building’s exterior with large, westward-f acing windows. By rearranging the location of fitness and social areas, the Youngstown Central YMCA will expand its selection of fitness classes and youth programs, making it more accessible to families. If you belong to any YMCA, you can visit another YMCA when traveling free of charge! youngstownymca.org “Chill Can” Plant A high-tech, $20 million plant that will produce self-chilling beverage cans broke ground in 2016.
