My Mahoning River

Jul 24, 2020

What does your Mahoning River look like? You do not have to live along the Mahoning River to enjoy the amenities it provides. If you work, live, recreate or patronize one of the business establishments along/near the river you are a part of a larger corridor revitalization taking place!  This is your time to help reimagine a river that built our communities. 

The My Mahoning River is a movement to bring back the river that was once lost to history and legacy pollutants.  It is an embrace by the residents and multiple agencies and officials to rebuild a resilient region offering new economic opportunities and improving water quality while providing a foundation to a healthier way of life.

The focus of the Mahoning Revitalization Plan includes 13 diverse river front communities stretching from Newton Township all the way down to the Ohio-Pennsylvania State line in Lowellville. This plan compliments a 2019 preliminary study that identified areas for potential economic development and recreation.

So, what does you Mahoning River look like? You decide.  Visit to learn more about the movement and become involved!
