REALTOR® Park is Shovel Ready!

LISBON, OH: A new park will soon welcome users of the Greenway Trail, as well as residents and visitors to Lisbon. The park is made possible by a $5,000 grant from the National Association of REALTORS®, that has been obtained by the Beaver Creek Area Association of REALTORS® and the Youngstown Columbiana Association of REALTORS®. Both local associations and the Lisbon Area Chamber of Commerce have also pledged contributions to the project.

The park will be located adjacent to the trail head parking area just off South Market Street. It will feature a pergola, seating, and signage showing the trail route and a map of downtown Lisbon.

As part of its community involvement program, the National Association of REALTORS®, along with local associations, is dedicated to helping communities make improvements that are mutually beneficial to the community and its residents and can have a positive impact on property values. This project began with a series of meetings with Mayor Roger Gallo and Councilman Peter Wilson about the effective use of village owned property at the park site. By mid-year, a committee consisting of these village leaders, representatives of the local REALTORS® associations, and the Lisbon Area Chamber of Commerce began to work on the details of the project and an implementation plan.

Grading and site preparation will begin this month. Construction and landscaping will be accomplished through participation of the Columbiana County Career and Technical Center, Boy Scouts, and REALTOR® volunteers. The dedication of the park is planned for October 2019.
