Boardman Township trustees met Wednesday, Feb. 27, where they discussed proposed changes to designated homes from R-2, single family home to six-plex, to R-1, single family home, focusing on the northeast quadrant of the township, with north/south boundaries from Midlothian to U.S. 224, and east/west boundaries from Youngstown Poland Road to Market Street.

"The intent behind this is to control the integrity of our neighborhoods," said Trustee Larry Moliterno.

Following a discussion with Mike O'Shaughnessy, director of the Mahoning County Planning Commission, and MCPC members Dick Dowell and Sarah Gartland, trustees agreed to move forward with the proposed changes; with updates to the township land use map being done by Youngstown State University, and proposed changes to the most at-risk areas to be submitted to Mahoning County commissioners.

"As we go forward, we've got to refine that to protect our community," said Trustee Tom Costello.
