The paper is an evaluation of the Youngstown Northside Weed and Seed Strategy in its first year. The purpose of the study is to determine if crime has decreased within the target area during the strategy's first year, determine how many crime prevention/community programs are in action and investigate collaboration among Steering Committee members.

The methodology consists of content analysis, secondary analysis and a focus group. The analysis compares the number of crimes for 2005, 2006, and 2007. The future of the Weed and Seed strategy depends on the dedication and commitment of Steering Committee members; it is imperative for members to attend the monthly meetings. Starting crime prevention and community programs within the target area is essential; this provides the targeted community with activities and/ or other vital services. The Northside Weed and Seed strategy is providing support and collaborating efforts among targeted area residents, community organizations, local government, and other various groups and businesses during its first year.
