Brown Should Sign Local-Control Bill on Housing
In the months after Gov. Jerry Brown proposed to dissolve California’s redevelopment agencies, he spoke frequently of his desire to return control to local communities. Nearly two years later, the governor is considering a bill that would do just that. We call on Gov. Brown to demonstrate his commitment to local control by signing AB 1229, letting local governments determine policies that work for them.

YMCA Project on Schedule
Framing and setting the tresses on the second floor for 12 apartments at the YWCA of Warren is under way this week as the Y says it’s on schedule for an early spring opening of the addition. The three-bedroom apartment units are being built on the north side of the YWCA building off North Park Avenue where the swimming pool, demolished earlier this year, used to be. The project is being funded by Huntington Bank, Ohio Housing Finance Agency, Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, Warren Trumbull Home Consortium, the Corporation for Supportive Housing and the Rotary Club of Warren.
