  “The project represents a critical step to the continued economic development of the township.”:   July 11, 2019 Edition

      associate editor
      Meeting on Monday night, Boardman Trustees Larry Moliterno, Brad Calhoun and Tom Costello unanimously approved a resolution of support for a proposed $25 million to $30 million redevelopment of the Southern Park Mall.
      “The Board of Trustees desires to promote the economic development efforts...which will create and retain jobs to the betterment of the township and its residents,” the resolution said.
      According to the resolution, the redevelopment is expected to include the demolition of portions of the mall (including the former Sears anchor store), improvements to interior mall space and the establishment of green space and pedestrian paths.
      “The project represents a critical step to the continued economic development of the township and the expansion of its tax base,” the resolution said, noting the Board of Trustees “is supportive of the project...including...using best efforts to establish a Joint Economic Development District.”
      In approving the measure, Trustees said they will cooperate with Mahoning County, the Western Reserve Port Authority and any other public bodies involved in providing assistance for the project.
      Other Matters
      Trustees adopted a nuisance abatement resolution for property at 1302 Mathews Rd. calling to the site to be cleared of rubbish, junk and debris.
      An expense of $26,526 was approved to provide funding for crack sealing on township roadways. The contract was awarded to Lindy Paving, of New Galilee, Pa.
      Trustees also approved a resolution to enter into an agreement with Poland Township Trustees to resurface Yellow Creek Dr. in an amount not to exceed $10,850.
      Trustees approved a resolution of necessity to place a three-tenths mil renewal levy on the ballot for the Boardman Park District, and a three-tenths mil road and bridge renewal road and bridge levy.
