Kent State Professor Helping Local Community Rise Again

Jeffrey Kruth, senior urban designer at Kent State University's Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, is paving a new path for the greater Youngstown community.

Mr. Kruth’s latest project is working in Youngstown, Ohio, leading tours through the property of a potential amphitheater for locals to enjoy. Mr. Kruth has been gathering insight from local residents and community members who will be enjoying the future amphitheater. The insight he hopes to gather are ideas on activities and connections to downtown that people would enjoy. Mr. Kruth hopes to create opportunities for year-round recreational use of the amphitheater.
