The City of Steubenville is weighing its options when it comes to revitalizing the downtown area and beyond.

To help, Councilman Bob Villamagna invited Paramount Pursuits, a group from Beaver County, PA, to attend Tuesday’s Economic Development Committee meeting.

The group centers around main street revitalization and entrepreneurship. The goal of Paramount Pursuits is to be contracted long enough to get the city back on its feet.

If council agrees to take this project on and hire the group to jump start business in downtown, it would come at a cost.

The good news is Community Development Block Grant money could help– but that funding wouldn’t be available until December with an action plan completed by June.
