Project PlanShrinking

Youngstown, Ohio (USA)

Youngstown (72,000 inhabitants), a former steel town, has been one of the forerunners in the US regarding an active embrace of urban shrinkage. After the loss of 50.000 well paid jobs in the steel industry the city struggled for decades to regain the former economic power. With the new master plan "Youngstown 2010" the city accepted the new reality of beeing a smaller city with the need for improved living conditions.
