WASHINGTON, DEC (Sept. 19, 2017) - The Mahoning River Corridor Mayor’s Association won the Silver Excellence in Economic Development Award for the Mahoning River Corridor Initiative, a project in the category of Regionalism and Cross–Border Collaboration of the International Economic Development Council (IEDC).

The Mahoning River Mayors Association brings together nine mayors from the cities along the banks of the Mahoning River.  This region was once the third largest steel producing region in the world.  This project proves that collaboration is more effective than competition in community development. The nine cities, two counties and six economic development agencies work together to advance the goals of the region: to revitalize the infrastructure, build shovel-ready sites, and enhance recreation and conservation along the Mahoning River Corridor.
