Description

Tree-lined Rush Boulevard

Some homes feature slate roofs.

At the southernmost border of Youngstown lies Boulevard Park, a picturesque vintage neighborhood comprised of Euclid and Rush Boulevards and a portion of Midlothian Boulevard.

Named for its lovely park-like setting and authentic boulevards, mature trees form a canopy over the double thoroughfares of Boulevard Park. Its medians are lined with lamp posts and its signature Buckeye trees, creating a perfect backdrop for a walk, jog or chat with a neighbor.

Boulevard Park consists of approximately 200 single family homes. The neighborhood is home to a large number of professionals, as well as small business owners, white collar workers, working class people, and retirees. Ease of living is enjoyed by residents and enhanced by the central location: a grocery store, pharmacy, bank, and filling station are just around the corner on South Avenue, a 10 minute drive can take you to the cultural center of downtown Youngstown or to various local and national retailer shops in the suburb of Boardman. The freeway system can be accessed in a mere 1.6 miles. Long standing family owned businesses and institutions add to the local character and are only minutes away.

Testimonials

"It's five minutes to everywhere!"
Carrie Neville, Boulevard Park

"My wife and I love the neighborhood. As an urban planner, I was looking for a house in an area with all the elements of a neotraditional neighborhood: walkable, tree-lined streets, sidewalks, reasonable-sized lots with garages pushed to the back of the property line, and houses that were well-constructed and with character (not cookie-cutter). All these things we’ve found living in Boulevard Park (not to mention the great neighbors)!"
Patrick Howard, Boulevard Park (Moved from Philadelphia)

"Besides living in a great old bungalow, I want every house in the neighborhood to be old. I have that here in Boulevard Park. Nothing new to offend my senses, and no McMansions!"
Tammy Mistovich, Boulevard Park

In City:

NOTE: A number of surrounding communities have open enrollment in their school district. These communities offer private school options, as well. This option is a consideration while living in the City of Youngstown because there is virtually no traffic congestion in the region.

Some schools on this list might offer curriculum for children with special needs. Nevertheless, additional schools do exist in the City and surrounding communities that specialize in providing such services.

Neighborhood Plan

August 7th meeting

In Progress...

On Thursday August 7th, 2008 a neighborhood planning meeting was held in the Boulevard Park Neighborhood. Over 30 people were in attendance at the meeting held at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church on Midlothian Boulevard. The discussion of the night focused on the creation of a new plan and vision for the neighborhood. A wealth of public input and opinion was gained with the utilization of audience response software and recording comments on a flip chart. Design and policy ideas were voted on using remote control voting pads and comments were taken, all to create a more accurate and supported action plan for specific, plan components and implementation.

The meeting focused on some of the central issues of the neighborhood - looking at current conditions and future ideas. Some of the issues and plans included improved medians, the addition of crosswalks, vacant property maintenance, and neighborhood group involvement.
