Trumbull County, Mahoning County, Warren City and Youngstown City Health Districts, Mercy Health, Mercy Health Foundation, Trumbull Mental Health & Recovery Board and Mahoning Mental Health & Recovery Board just completed a Community Health Assessment to find out the needs of our communities, and now it is time to take action to address those needs. Throughout this process, we have heard from community members through surveys, community conversations, and voting on priorities, and our agencies are offering another opportunity for community members to have a voice in the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).

We will be holding 4 community CHIP meetings, which will be held in person, but will also offer a Zoom option, to allow as many community members as possible to participate and have a voice in this process. The first sessions will be held on Sunday, July 10th from 5-7pm.

In Trumbull County, it will be held in Warren City Council Chambers, 141 South Street S.E. Warren, OH 44483, with refreshments provided.

In Mahoning, it will be held at the Eugenia Atkinson Rec Center, 903 Otis St., Youngstown, Ohio 44510

The City of Warren is required by the Ohio EPA to implement a stormwater management program. This program is managed by the Water Pollution Control Department (WPC). Part of this program includes letting residents know about the program and providing information about stormwater pollution and how to prevent it from entering our rivers, lakes and streams.

As stormwater flows over the ground, it picks up litter, chemicals, and pollutants that can contaminate our drinking and recreational water supply. Unlike residential wastewater (from toilets, showers, and sinks) that is filtered through a wastewater treatment facility, anything that enters a storm sewer system or roadside ditches in the City of Warren goes to Mosquito Creek or the Mahoning River with no treatment.

For more information about the program and to see how you can help, CLICK HERE.
